From time to time, we get requests from folks who want certain parts from certain kits for kitbashing and detailing projects ... or an occasional request for an out-of-production item, etc. Please read the notes below BEFORE using this function!
Email us first! If you're looking for bits-n-pieces from a particular kit or seeking an out-of-production item, send us an email to discuss your needs. We're always happy to entertain your requests, discuss kitbashing projects, etc. Occasionally, we can produce an out-of-production kit (not always), etc. Just give a holler to discuss what you have in mind.
Then what? Okay, once we've had our discussion about what you need, I'll send an email letting you know what can be supplied and the price. That's where this "Special Order" item comes in ... it allows you to complete a purchase using our secure web site. So, if I quote $7.50 for a special item that's not on the web site, you'd order 7.50 units of this "Special Order" listing ... and make a note as described below.
At checkout: There's a box that says "Special Instructions or Comments about your Order" ... in that box, make a reference to our discussion ... for example: "Special order covers part(s) discussed in our (date) email" ... or you can be more specific about the item!
Wise guys: Okay, most of my good friends are model railroaders ... and at least a few are what I'd call "wise guys" ... and I do mean that in the nicest way! If you add a $9.99 Special Order item and write "build me a layout" in the comments ... I'll tell ya what you'll get: bubkis! So, I'll welcome your jokes and sense of humor on the phone and in emails ... but don't use this item unless we've discussed a special order in advance.
Always happy to help with your kitbashing projects -- email to discuss your needs!
