Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions govern your use of our website. Please read these terms in full before you use this website. If you do not accept these terms and conditions, please do not use this website. Your continued use of this website confirms your acceptance of these terms.
ABOVE ALL IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS AT ANY POINT WITH MY WEBSITE, PRODUCTS OR DELIVERY PLEASE CONTACT ME IN THE FIRST INSTANCE. AS I AM A ONE MAN BUSINESS YOU WILL ALWAYS DEAL DIRECTLY WITH ME.
1. Production time
Please allow up to 21 days for manufacturing and preparing your order for shipping. However it should be noted that almost all orders are sent out within 5-10 days. I will always communicate if there are any out of the ordinary delays. I usually mail out once or twice a week depending on order and work load.
Resin sets, that being opaque cast, clear cast and 3D printed sets are often made to order, however often the popular sets are often in stock.
Brass sets, the stock holding of these is strictly controlled to avoid long delays that sometimes occur from the casting company, so if you are able to purchase the set it is in stock (or should be) available to be mailed out in 5-7 days. However I usually and generally have new orders of brass sets in production on a continuous basis so if there is not stock available there is a good chance that it soon will be available.
Decal sets, these are very strictly controlled and once they are sold out that is it, unless I do a further decal run in the future.
IF THE LARGE LETTER OPTION IS AVAILABLE PLEASE SELECT THAT FOR SHIPPING OF YOUR ORDER, IT IS CHEAPER.
IF THE LARGE LETTER OPTION IS NOT AVAILABLE YOUR ORDER WILL HAVE TO BE SHIPPED AS A SMALL PARCEL, THIS IS DETERMINED ON THE VOLUME OF THE PART / SET NOT ON THE WEIGHT.
Royal Mail services are used for all orders
United Kingdom there are two options available, that being either tracked 48 hour or tracked 24 hour, this seems to offer almost the best options for both customer and Aerocraft Models.
Rest of the World there is the option to have your parcel sent via standard delivery or via tracked delivery. It should be noted that for very small and light items the tracked option is quite a bit more expensive than standard shipping, but on larger items it is often quite reasonable.
TRACKED SHIPPING PLEASE NOTE this service does offer better protection and often does assist in keeping track of where the parcel is, and both customer and Aerocraft Models are better protected. However I cannot over emphasize enough that this is often not the case and it certainly does not mean that the parcel will travel any faster.
Delivery time from date of your order being mailed. Well this is very difficult and even though the Royal Mail website will quote delivery times based on where you live in the world, I have found that this varies a great deal in this ever changing world.
European both EU and non EU countries please allow up to 4-6 weeks, but hopefully delivery in many cases will be within 2-3 weeks. Unfortunately since the introduction of BREXIT, there are much greater delays than before, and very often that is in the customs departments of your receiving countries, and the communication process to you the customer to pay the tax and charges.
Rest of the World please allow up to 5-7 weeks for delivery, however as a general rule 3-4 weeks should be expected.
As a huge positive in over 20 years of me using these services through all sorts world difficulties and challenges very few parcels have been lost forever or destroyed.
