Brunel Models order to USA

Next week or so I plan on sending an order to Brunel (https://www.brunelmodels.net/) for some corrugated iron makers.  The shipping from Australia to Oregon is going to run $26.50 minimum and ranges into the mid $30 range as I complete my order.  I am wondering if anyone is interested in going in on an order to split the Aussie postal service costs to the US.  Once items arrive, I would send them out via USPS Priority flat rate. Most of the stuff will fit in a cardboard envelope, which state-side shipping is $8.95; so depending on how many folks want to order (X), per person shipping will run about $30-40ish / X + $8.95



A consideration - I don't know how quick the orders come from that part of the Pacific rim, but I am due to head to Morocco for a month at the end of August to visit family, so if it doesn't arrive before then distribution won't happen until I get back.  My guess is that won't be an issue.


Anyone interested?

Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.

Not sure if this is a viable alternative but if you have a 3d printer these are avail in HO that might scale down and work in N

Or, you can order quite a bit of it here for the cost of that AUS shipping and they are in the PNW.

I made my own by glueing alternate lengths (about 2 inches) of .10 x .30 and .10 x .40 styrene on edge onto a piece of .40 thick styrene sheet (as a base) to create a form for the corregated steel. This part is about 4 scale feet wide.  I cut off about a 1/8 inch long piece of the laminated strips, which I attached a suitably thick piece of styrene as a handle, to create a ‘rake’ to press strips of 4 foot wide strips of aluminum foil into the corregated sheets. I had to gently file the edges of the ‘rake’ to make sure it didn’t snag the foil sheet, but otherwise it works pretty well.
