First Time Here?

Firstly welcome to our site and hope you can find something of interest now or in the near future, these are just a few points that we get asked frequently or think you should know.

Why do you list Secondhand items individualy in the way you do
Well we do not believe having one item covering all of the box styles / ages and conditions as others do as some people do not care about the boxes and are happy to have a poor box at a cheaper price. If a secondhand item has a quantity available then the ones available under that part number are all in identical condition otherwise we would list it seperately with another photo of that individual item. This is very time consuming for us but we think this has always helps our customers as collectors and builders want totaly different things.

Have You Got ???????
All of our stock is listed on the site, and updated regularly. "Updated Regularly" is a statement commonly used on the web but for us its true, we normaly add the latest items we have every weekend, this can be upto 500 items either unique secondhand or new lines or back in stocks. Why dont you see the Airfix Cars, HMS Repulse Airfix 1/32 Figures etc? its because a lot of items go within hours of the update and as soon as they have sold they dissapear from the site (or go to zero quantity if purchased by phone), a lot of items we add we could sell 100 times over and unlike others we dont add silly prices to our items or list endless reems of items that we do not have in stock (we have all seen those sites). Even if a common item like the current Airfix Spitfire is not available we do not list it until stock is available sagain.

How Accurate Is The "Quantity Available" figure.
The stock available quantity is live, not updated once a day week or month but purely live. When a item is purchased on the phone / online or on the premises the quantity online is automaticaly updated. We have lost the odd item as there is always bound to be a locating mistake with the amount of orders we process but on average we ship 200 orders per week and are unable to fulfill about one order every 2 months so about 1 in 1700 orders. This is due to the fact that the whole system is computerised and we "stock count" on a regular basis.

Again unlike other companies we do not accept them full stop. Why? two main reasons:
1. We never know when the stock will definately arrive on all items, most we do but some items we have been waiting  nearly two years for, the SS France for instance.
2. By the time it arrives to us you may have found it elsewhere sooner, cheaper, better, different make, Card details changed, moved etc.
Most manufacturers list their new releases and dates on there websites, usualy with much more info than we or others would show and as we and others have the new releases on pre-order with the suppliers we all get them at the same time.

Shipment Times / Postage Costs / Overseas Order / Privacy etc
All of these topics are covered in the catagories to the right of the screen, anything else you need to know or are unsure about please call on +44(0)1933 622654 or e-mail us on

Do You Buy Collections / Models / Shop Stock
Yes we do but usualy from the UK only as postage costs normaly make it prohibitive from overseas. Please send us your list and what you would like for them and will contact you.

Concerned About Buying Over The Web / From Us.
A natural thought and one that anyone should bear in mind when ordering on the web.
We are a Limited company registered with companies house.
We  have a day time phone number and not a mobile.
Our address is on the top of every page of the website and customers are welcome to collect their orders in person.
Online card details entered are protected by a 2048k encryption, details of which canm be seen in the top right hand corner during the order process or by double clicking on the small yellow padlock that appears at the bottom of your browser window.

New Prices
We do try to offer most of the mainstream items below the RRPs but on some manufacturers we just cannot do this as the margins are so tight. The larger model companies online who get the biggest discounts from suppliers do not pass this on in any way!
If you think we have an item that you are interested in priced incorrectly then please let us know so that we can rectify this.

Secondhand Prices
We again try to be as cheap as possible but this is not always possible, some items just cost a lot for us to stock them and on some of the rarest items we list them on our site at the price we paid as a service for fellow modellers. And again if you are interested in an item and you think the price is too high please tell us why and if we agree we will change it.

Whats the Differnce Between New and Mint ?
For tax reasons we have to seperate the new items from the ex-shop stock and secondhand items and to give the customer the knowledge if its new or not. If the item is listed as "New" then the item has come from the manufactuer or distributor direct. If listed as anything else including mint it has come from a collection or ex shop stock. Usualy the mint and nr mint items are as new its just that we do not list them that way.
