Shipping

Several shipping options are displayed during checkout. Prices start at just $1.00, but note the following:

Regular letter: this is the cheapest option and is available if you're ordering 1 or 2 Metal Earth kits. This is sent using the standard Australia Post letter service which is cheap, but slower than parcels. No tracking is provided.

Priority letter: arrives one day faster than the regular service, but it's still sent as a letter with no tracking. 

Other services: both regular and express parcel services are available and in these cases tracking is provided. Our preferred shipper is Fastway as they provide tracking and signature on delivery for an affordable price. 

About the Tiger Swallowtail

The Tiger Swallowtail is native to eastern North America as well as Turkey. The male is yellow with four black “tiger stripes” on each forewing. Females may be either yellow or black, making them dimorphic. The yellow morph is similar to the male, but with a conspicuous band of blue spots along the hindwing, while the dark morph is almost completely black. This model is based off of the female yellow morph.
