2nd Hand & Vintage Kits

All 2nd hand, vintage or older kits/decals are sold in an 'as is, where is' condition and condition of decals is not guaranteed, we endeavour to do our best in inspecting any opened kits but cannot guarantee completeness in these cases. Where we state 'appears complete' this means that we have checked the item concerned and everything appears to be correct, kits in the 'Missing Parts' section will either have missing parts noted or be classed as Junkers. Decals either in kits or as an individual item are inspected but due to the nature of decals we cannot guarantee their condition and provide no indemnity against faults.


Pre Ordering

Please note when placing a pre-order the price will only be confirmed once we have all the costs to hand and may not be the same as shown on the website.
