I wanted to order one of my own models to be shipped to a friend (in the U.S.) as a gift. Model cost $16, U.S. shipping $6.50. Total cost $24.50 Perfect... but not possible. Shipping and billing countries can't be split. So now I have to order the model $16, ship it to Australia, $20, then ship it back to the US my self $10. Total cost $56. Double the cost of shipping direct and taking at least two weeks longer.
