Well it finally came after a 4 week wait from across the pond, opened the box today and it looks a big sub, 58 inches in length and 4inch diameter, this one will be made as a dynamic dive....

customs and import taxes

2.3 What are the limits for customs duty and import VAT?
■Commercial consignments of 18 or less are free from customs duty and import VAT. For example, goods purchased over the internet with an intrinsic value not exceeding 18, will not be charged any duty or VAT but this does not include alcohol, tobacco products, perfume or toilet waters, see paragraph 2.5, 2.6 and section 3.
■If you are sent a gift with a value of 36 or less, and which complies ,with the rules shown in paragraph 2.4. it will be free from customs duty and import VAT, but this does not include alcohol, tobacco, perfumes and toilet waters.
■Customs duty becomes payable if the value of the goods is over 120 but duty is waived if the amount of duty calculated is less than 7.
There are a number of other circumstances where relief from some or all customs charges may be available. If you think your goods may be eligible for a relief you should contact the Helpline for further information.
