Using this Site

Thank you for visiting our website. Please have a quick read-through on this page where we explain how to best use our website for a better shopping experience.

The Home Page includes the following items: 

  • Featured Items - These are basically a selection of New Releases. However you will be able to see ALL the latest releases by going to the Featured Collection New Releases. If however, you click on the link View all Items, this will list all the products on our website in alphabetical order.
  • Featured Collections - All products are grouped in Collections, so basically each manufacturer is a different Collection, for which there may be sub-categories, eg. Alexandros Models has 3 collections: Alexandros Busts, Alexandros Figures and Alexandros Semi-Flats. As above, if you click on the link View all Collections, all the Collections on our website will be listed in alphabetical order.

Menus:

  • The Top Menu has the basic website links: About Us, Terms & Conditions, Tutorials, Rewards, and Using this Site. We highly recommend that you read the Terms and Conditions prior to purchasing for the first time.
  • The Main Menu on the left sorts products according to MANUFACTURERS. Some of the main manufacturers are then split up again in sub-categories. You will see a (+) sign next to their name. If you click on the (+) sign, a sub-menu opens up to reveal the categories listed under that manufacturer. 
  • SHOP BY TYPE - the second menu under the Manufacturers List. Here you can look for items according to their type, so for example 75mm Fantasy Figures, Foliage & Groundwork or Mannequins & Putties, and you will be given a list of ALL products listed under that category from ANY manufacturer.

Products:

  • Products show the same detail as before, including product code, weight, material, etc. 
  • Prices display the UK/EU price (inclusive of VAT) and the Non-EU price (exclusive of VAT).
  • If you hover slightly over the main picture, you have a Quick View option which shows most of the product details. For additional information click on the link View full product details at the bottom of the pop-up window. However you can add items to your cart directly from the Quick View window.
  • All products are in stock (unless otherwise indicated - see below).
  • Out-of-stock items are indicated as follows: If a product is out of stock, it will be greyed out with a label saying Coming Soon. You will notice that there will be no "Add to Basket" option. If you wish to be notified when the item is back in stock, please fill in your email address in the box "Sign up for re-stock notifications". You will then automatically receive an email once the item is back in stock.

Pricing:

  • Prices display the UK/EU price (inclusive of VAT) and the Non-EU price (exclusive of VAT).
  • For discounted items, the prices shown are the reduced prices. The "crossed-out" price is the basic price WITHOUT VAT. Therefore for UK/EU customers, 20% VAT would need to be added for the Regular Retail Price (RRP) of the product. So, for example:
UK/EU: £30.52
Non-EU: £25.43
£27.50
The RRP for UK/EU customers would therefore be £27.50 + 20% = £33.00.

Reviews:

A new function on this website is that you are welcome to leave product reviews for any kits that you purchase. You may leave a star rating as well as a comment if you wish. These comments will be monitored by ourselves and edited if required. Abusive or insulting comments will be NOT be posted.
