We will not supply substitute products without contacting you first.

If one item is out of stock we will only ship the available goods and your payment method will be debited with the value of the despatched goods rather than the whole order value.

We have the right at any time to revise prices to take into account increases in costs including (without limitation) costs of agreed changes in any taxes, duties, levies or exchange rates or costs arising as a result of site conditions, delays, interruptions, lack of information and any other factor beyond our control.


Many customers are not aware that particular models will not “always be available”.

Most manufacturers only produce models in limited quantities, as this adds to the collectability of the hobby.

Some manufacturers only produce very limited quantities for worldwide consumption and do not produce the model again.   Collectors are aware of this and they tend to sell out very quickly as a result.

The market place changes as time goes by as well, so in many instances a model that may have been popular once may not be now so it is discontinued or sold out.

This means that if you decide on a particular model, purchase it as soon as you can, or there is a strong chance that you will miss out.

Models are often announced as a “new release” by  manufacturers. Such models may not be physically produced for several months and in some cases years.  You may see them listed as “available” on some websites…… that site is probably taking pre-orders only…………this is not an indication the model has been produced. Further a model may be available in other markets ahead of the local deliveries, this is because either, we unlike some suppliers prefer to sea freight to ensure our prices remain competitive. There are also often legal reasons a model may not be available in some markets due to licensing arrangements.
