About Us

The Model Dockyard has been successfully catering to the needs of the scale ship modeller since 1987. We were the first UK mail order only business in the UK solely specialising in Scale Model ships and related items and thinking about it, we probably still are. Because of this specialisation, you won't find our shelves cluttered up with model aircraft, railways, TOYS or cars.

'Jack of all trades - Master of none' springs to mind!

Making A Purchase

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. Stock levels are shown next to that item. Any item showing as having zero stock, will have a link to a page giving you an indication of the supply situation for that item or range.

After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

All prices are shown in pounds sterling and we only charge in Pounds Sterling. If you are paying by a credit or debit card, your card company will convert the Pounds Sterling transaction into your own currency at a rate prevailing at the time. As a guide, we also show our prices in US Dollars, but please note this is just a guide.

We accept Visa and MasterCard credit /debit cards; emailed payment by Paypal; or by a direct funds transfer to our bank. We are unable accept American Express or Diners cards. We do not charge your credit/ debit card until the order is ready to ship. Back ordered items are not charged until they are ready to be shipped.

Once you have completed your order you will receive an onscreen confirmation of order, as well as an email if you supplied a valid email address. This is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
