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 Windmill

The term windmill derives from their use to mill grain. The first windmills appeared in Europe during the 12th century in northwestern France and southern England. At their peak of popularity some windmills were able to produce more than 1.5 megawatts of power, a level not reached again until 1988.
