You could try to order, but they will just cancel it on you. They say they cant ship to canada because of USPS size restrictions. Best to look else where from the numerous other merchants that DO ship through USPS for about 150.00 cheaper.

I assume the pricing means nitromodels does not want to do business in Canada

I would look at other sites to see what's available and what the shipping policies are
www.greathobbies.com - located in Canada
www.hobbypeople.net
www.hobby-lobby.com
www.horizonhobby.com
www.towerhobbies.com

From one site I listed

Tower Hobbies ships to all addresses in Canada. Add an additional $15.00 for Priority Mail shipping to Canada ($24.99 total). Note that some products are restricted and cannot be shipped via USPS to Canada. This will be noted during checkout or in the International Shipping Calculator found in the shopping cart. Many of the physical size restricted items may be sent via UPS Worldwide Saver. Local taxes and customs duties usually apply and are added once your shipment reaches its destination. Please see your local authorities for more information. Tower Hobbies does not know when additional charges such as additional brokerage fees will apply. These additional charges are the responsibility of the buyer.

Hi Guys
No it doesn't look like nitro wants to play with anyone north of the border, Too bad looks like they have some good deals from time to time! I did order a t-28 trojan (60 size) and a 91 frs, two months ago from Hobby People and they shipped it in two boxes and they charged me around 50 bucks.

Regards; Andy

Try pulling up Nitro and see what people have to say about them, sometimes the prices only look good on paper.
