Do you charge VAT?

As a small start up business, I do not currently reach the turnover threshold which requires me to register to charge VAT. For this reason prices appear as "tax exempt". No VAT is accordingly due on any of my sales.

How much prepping do you provide?

As standard we will do minor seams, seals and the removal of OF paint jobs.

Do you provide any additional prepping?

Unfortunately we do not. If your model has breaks or a custom paint job or anything else that we will not prep then we recommend that you contact Hunters Moon Models for an excellent prep job.

How long does a custom order usually take?​

We estimate around one month depending on the level of orders and other commitments.

Are your models sealed?

Yes. We seal all our model with a high quality sealant and use gloss to highlight specific areas such as the eyes.

Will you repaint the bodies in you Body Shop?

Usually not as they tend to be my own model that I don't want to work on, or that need large amounts of prepping.

What does G1, G2, G3, G4 and G5 mean?

The terms G1, G2, G3, G4 and G5 are codes given to the Stablemate molds made by Breyer. The G4 horses are the newest range. The codes are simply in place to distinguish between different molds with the same name (for example the G1 Arabian, G2 Arabian and G3 Arabian). The term 'G' is an abbreviation of 'Generation'. So a G2 Arabian is a second generation Arabian.

How Do I Place An Order Using A Debit or Credit Card?

In order to place an order using a credit or debit card you need to use the PayPal checkout and to click the option to pay without creating a PayPal account.

To help you out we have created this photo tutorial:
