RETURNS, EXCHANGES AND REFUNDS
Same policy applies as above, but due to customs, duties, and other regulations regarding shipping to foreign countries, we may ask you to destroy the model even if it is “repairable”. A new item will be sent to you at no additional costs. Duties, taxes, and any additional fees are non-refundable. You will need to contact the shipping company for reimbursement.
Return of an item without a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) Number
Sending the item back to us without prior authorization voids your eligibility for a full refund as this voids the damage claim eligibility with the shipping company. A 50% restocking fee is assessed for all orders that are returned without a valid RMA number. In addition, all items that are returned 45 days after receipt a 50% restocking fee will apply. The fee will be deducted from the total refund amount. In the event that a return is needed, we will make arrangements for the return. Do not send it back via any other means.
Return of an item you are unsatisfied with:
- Contact us immediately (within 5 days of delivery or for orders placed from November 20th – December 23rd notify us by January 2ndas we realize that many of our items are gifts. Contacting us after this period voids any claim.
- Obtain a return authorization number from us.
- Place the item securely in the original package, exactly as how it was packaged. Please package the model, display item, etc exactly as it arrived, if the model is not packaged this way damage might occur
- Include all paperwork, parts and accessories that were included with the model, display item, etc.
- Ship the model back to us (at your cost) to the Merchandise Returns Address, below. It is recommended that the return is insured for the purchase price in case of loss or damage. You will need to contact the shipping company for claims if needed.
