Our scale model kits and built-up models are intended only for adult model makers and adult model collectors. They are NOT suitable for children because of small parts which can present a choking hazard. In addition, some of the components have functional sharp edges or points and should be handled with care.

Castings and mouldings supplied with our 'Full Kit' and 'Body Only' options are unfinished and require trimming, drilling and preparing prior to painting, varnishing and assembly. Glues, paints, varnishes and modelmaking tools are required to complete our kits but are NOT included in our kits or supplied by us.
