About Us Cornwall Model Boats Ltd are the UK's leading suppliers of model boat kits, fittings, hardware and tools.We have a wealth of experience in model boat building, and as a specialist mail order company we can devote more time to dealing with enquiries as well as processing and dispatching your order as quickly as possible.

We differ from the more traditional model shops and the majority of mail order suppliers in the fact we hold all items listed on this site in stock, rather than being dependant on our suppliers to fulfill orders (i.e shadow stock). If an item is not in stock, then the add to cart button will not be available and the item cannot be ordered online.

OurWarehouse carries more than 24000 individual lines of stock, and we generally hold well over 3500 wooden & RC kits in stock at any time, we are constantly expanding our product range.

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. 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 If you are shopping from outside of the United Kingdom, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction into your own currency at a rate prevailing at the time. As a guide, we also show our prices in Euros & US Dollars.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Electron, JCB and Solo. We do not charge for any item until it is ready to ship. Backordered items are not charged until they are shipped.

When confirmation of order is received, 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 a dispatch notification or 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.
Shipping And Handling We aim to dispatch orders within 1-3 working days of receipt.
However despite our best efforts, from time to time some items do temporarily run out of stock. If your order contains an item or items that are out of stock, we will, at our discretion, wait until all items are in stock before processing your order or send the in stock items to you with the out of stock items either backordered or cancelled depending on availability.
We do not take payment for any goods until they are ready for dispatch.
