Secure Online Ordering
When you place an order online, all the payment details you enter are encrypted using SSL technology before being sent over the Internet. This is the standard method for online shopping to prevent your personal information from being copied or intercepted while being transferred to our computer. On receipt of your order you will be transfered to the WorldPay online credit card payment facility. Your order details are stored in a secure IBM Lotus Domino database to keep them safe from hackers, and your credit card details are not held as clear text on any web site or computer connected directly to the Internet.
If you are not happy about using our secure online ordering facility we can accept your order by telephone. Simply complete and submit the online order form then call us on 08456 44 70 44 to arrange payment either by credit card or cheque. Cheques should be made payable to Mini Model Shop and sent to: Mini Model Shop, 11 Riverside, Sir Thomas Longley Road, Medway City Estate, Strood, Kent, ME2 4DP.

* Warning *
These items ARE NOT TOYS. The models available on this website are NOT intended for use by children under the age of 8. The models can contain small parts and certain features are extremely delicate. If you have any concerns regarding this warning, please call us on 01634 718190.
Some items are available to be pre-ordered. In order to pre-order an item, payment must be made in full. Wherever possible, we will specify an approximate delivery date. If you pre-order an item we will contact you prior to despatch. Once we have received the item in our warehouse we will despatch it to you the following working day.
Available to Order
Some items we are still waiting to receive from our suppliers and we are expecting to receive these within 2-3 weeks (sometimes sooner). If this is the case, this will be highlighted on the product page and an estimated despatch date will be given.
Items we display as 'in stock' are in our warehouse ready to be despatched. Our website however can be up to half an hour behind the stock level system. If by coincidence you order an item that has sold out in the last half hour the item you purchased will be placed on back-order and despatched as soon as it arrives. You will be e-mailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait, in which case your credit card will be immediately refunded.
Although every effort is made to provide a detailed description of each item, this is only meant as a guide and we cannot be held responsible for inaccurate information. Item pictures and photos shown on this website should be used as a guide only, as true colour representation is not guaranteed.
Orders are subject to VAT at 20%. VAT is included in all prices listed on the web site.

Who Are We
Minimodelshop.com (Mini Model Shop) is a trading name of Effective Web Solutions Limited registered in the UK number 7281565. Registered address: 11 Riverside, Sir Thomas Longley Road, Strood, Kent, ME2 4DP.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge. The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill. We are obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us. Customers must return their like-for-like WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol and be disposed of separately from normal household waste. Please be aware that you are responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.
