Policies Page


Our lay-a-way policy is simple. Three months, three payments. If more time is required, let us know. We can usually work something out to meet your needs.


Our fee for consignment is 20% of the agreed upon sales price. We will only list consigned models that we have received at our shop. All models that are received on premises are insured against damage or theft and are inspected for running condition and finish quality when received. We are fully equipped to make reasonable mechanical or paint repairs to models if required. Modest fees will be charged only after owner approval.

Payment Methods

Since the fees charged for international bank wire transfers are about the same or more than the credit card user fees, we suggest you make these charges on your credit card. We honor Visa, Discover, and Mastercard, personal checks, money orders, bank checks and off course cash. Shipment for items paid by personal checks will be held for 7 days.

We also honor checks drawn on an overseas bank (as long as a corresponding US bank is listed on the check), money orders, and if you should choose, bank wire transfers. Please contact us for this method of payment.

Return Policy

If you are not fully satisfied with the model you have purchased you have five (5) days after receipt of the model to notify us of your intentions to return the model. Once we receive the model in the same condition as it was when shipped, we will promptly return your moneys in full including shipping charges.
