TERMS & CONDITIONS
|ORDER ACCEPTANCE AND PROCESSING
All orders are accepted when your PayPal payment is processed. Any email or other acknowledgement of your order is merely to report that your request has been received and will be looked at, and does not in any way denote acceptance of your order regardless of any wording on the email.
Any customs duties or taxes or shipping
surcharges are not included in quoted prices. Orders shipped
by FedEx or DHL are insured against loss and damage in transit. Models shipped by Philpost are
not insured against loss or damage during transit.
Production times quoted are approximate and exclusive of National Holidays. Production time commences from the date of our official order confirmation
to dispatch of your model you will receive images of the model
showing the final stage after detailing has taken place.
After your approval or request
for any modifications the model will then go to the final stages
of production which involve final top coating and finishing
processes and including one more final Quality Assurance check.
These stages normally take about
an additional 7 days on top of the quoted production time although
we aim to finish quicker if possible.
ModelBuffs reserves the right, at any time prior to acceptance, to refuse any order or any part of an order, or to require further or better information to enable it to evaluate and/or process the order.
Custom made model orders are accepted only when the agreed specification has been confirmed by a completed order form returned to you, detailing sources of pictures and plans if required. Customers may send their own pictures, preferably digital.
Artists will paint the model to that specification, if necessary confirming to the customer with digital picture prior to shipment, that it is acceptable.
All physical dimensions stated on advertised models are approximate. The final delivered model dimensions may vary slightly from those advertised. Where the height of the model is stated the measurement is assuming that the model would be in a gear down configuration. If the model depicted does not show gear down an allowance should be made for a reduced overall height of the model.
Due to the inherent nature of
wooden products we are unable to fully guarantee that over a period
of time there will be no development of minor cracks within the
model. This is also partly due to the fact that different
climatic conditions, humidity levels, temperature fluctuations can
all play a part in altering the structure of natural wood.
Stock and generic models will have digital pictures already available and website pictures will always represent aircraft and airline markings and logos as closely as possible.
ModelBuffs reserves the right to determine finally in the event of any dispute whether any model has failed to conform to the originally agreed specification.
Sometimes there are limitations regarding accuracy due to scale and manufacturing processes, and these are not the responsibility of ModelBuffs.
ModelBuffs reserves the right to photograph and use for general publicity purposes any model made for private or corporate customers irrespective of the type or version of the model in question.
