23 Oak Tree Road, Thatcham, Berks RG19 4QP
We aim to dispatch all drawing orders within 1 week by Royal Mail 1st class post, Drawings up to G1 will always be packaged in a postal tube to ensure they arrive undamaged. Larger drawings and GAs will be posted as letters. As a small concern we don‚Ät have an order tracking facility but if you do require an estimate of delivery, please email or call
3D prints may take longer as kits are not held in stock but produced individually to order.
Postage is charged separately on UK drawing orders and up to 7mm scale is based loosely upon the Royal Mail cost of a 1st class small parcel plus a small cardboard tube for the UK. This is a flat charge and does not increase with additional items. Gauge 1 drawings have to be posted as Medium Parcels (thanks Royal Mail) hence the increased cost. If you are happy to recieve drawings folded let me know and I will refund excess postage. Orders to Europe and Rest of the world incur higher postage charges. These are worked out automatically and¬ take into account the number of drawings ordered. Please email details of your order if you wish to receive a tailored quote for P&P. Where possible I will combine orders and refund exces postage.
