Note on Corporation Model Trams kits
As these are printed to order please allow up to 60 days from
ordering. We will advise if this will be longer.
As with any model body or kit they will require additional work before painting. Occasionally the bodies will come with orientation marks where they have been printed. This is a part of the printing process and is not a defect, a filler primer or thin layer of filler will correct this.
All bogie car floor units consist of seating unit and integral mechanism frame. Most also have the platforms and fenders attached. These units are printed in versatile plastic or processed versatile plastic and are of a rougher texture than the main kits for cost and durability. They can be smoothed off with filler primer if desired. 4 wheel cars typically do not have lower deck seating due to the height of the traction units.
Whilst we endeavour to ensure all items are available, due to production and pricing changes at our manufacturers from time-to-time some kits may be temporarily withdrawn. Should this occur we will contact you and offer a refund or alternative kit if it is not rectifiable in a reasonable time frame.
DUE TO THE NATURE OF 3D PRINTING, LONG LEAD TIMES
FOR BOGIE PARTS AND ADD ON PACKS SOMETIMES
REQUIRING CASTING PLEASE ALLOW A MINIMUM 28 DAYS
FOR ORDERS, BUT THIS MAY BE LONGER AT TIMES.
