Payment and Delivery
"Model engineering 
to the highest production standards and excellent value...

Mike Wade
Former Asst. Editor of Model Engineer
To Spread the cost and workload for customers we have devised a payment and delivery programme extending over 18 months - so you can build as you buy.
The 'William Shakespeare' model is comprised of 18 individual kits. Kits 1-18 will be delivered at a rate of one kit per month, completing delivery over an 18 month period.
Kits are delivered in an appropriate order to provide a logical build sequence.

Payment and delivery arrangements

You can secure your 'William Shakespeare' model with an initial deposit of just £595.00 sent with your order reservation followed by 18 monthly instalments of £300.00. Total cost £5,995.00.
N.B. Monthly payments will be required approximately four weeks in advance of the despatch of each kit.
It is important that payments are made promptly to ensure the regular monthly despatch of kits. This will allow completion within the planned 18 month period.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All prices are ex-works, carriage and packing extra. 
UK and E.C. Member State customers: VAT must be added to all our prices including carriage and packing. UK carriage and packing will be charged at £9.50 per monthly despatch + VAT

Calculation of total charges 
inclusive of carriage and VAT.
Initial Deposit @ £595 + VAT = £ 699.13

Monthly kit instalments

Per month @ £300.00 + carriage @ £9.50
+ VAT = £363.66 per month x 18 = 6,545.93
                               TOTAL £7,245.06

The above example represents the total cost of William Shakespeare as described and illustrated in this brochure including carriage, packing and VAT. There are no hidden extras.
Limited Availability ...

Availability is strictly limited with customer order reservations now being taken for our only batch production of 1999 for delivery commencing September. Reservations, accompanied by the requisite deposit, will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. No further production of our Britannia Class locomotive is planned until 2002 at the earliest.

For U.K. customers monthly payment is preferred by standing order, or credit card (Visa/Mastercard) as it is important to maintain a regular payment pattern if kits are to be despatched on time. You may elect for monthly payment by standing order, or credit card, when we acknowledge receipt of your order reservation and deposit. 
If you prefer you may, of course, pay by cheque, or Postal Order each month.
For overseas customers, credit card payment is preferred.
We are happy to accept Order Reservations by telephone for payment by credit card. Cheques and Postal Orders should be crossed and made payable to “Winson Model Technology Ltd.”.

Winson Model Technology Limited undertakes that:

1) All materials supplied will be fit for purpose.
2) All parts are guaranteed for 30 months from the date of Kit 1 delivery. Any defective parts will be replaced free-of-charge within this time period. 
(Excluding normal wear and tear.)

Whilst every effort has been made to describe and illustrate the 14xx accurately in this brochure we reserve the right, in pursuit of continual product improvement, to alter or modify designs or the composition of specific kits. The right to refuse an order reservation, for whatever reason, is reserved. Unless by prior agreement with the company where a customer's payment is more than 28 days overdue for any single instalment, or more than 14 days for each of three or more instalments the company may, at its discretion, cancel deliveries of any remaining kits to the defaulting customer without refund of any monies paid. Whilst Winson Model Technology Ltd will make all efforts to maintain the production and despatch of kits monthly, it cannot guarantee this unreservedly. If any kit should be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances the company will do its best to ensure all kit deliveries are still completed within the original delivery timeframe. Deposits are returnable at the company's discretion up to the despatch of kit 1. Your statutory rights remain unaffected.

Many of our customers welcome the idea of belonging to an association to promote the building, and sheer pleasure of running their steam models.

Some of you may already be members of local Model Engineering Societies and others may be fortunate enough to have their own garden railway or suitable running facilities.

Our customer membership is already large enough to justify the production of a bi-monthly newsletter - ‘Fastrack’. This is a forum for exchanging hints and tips on construction, painting and other topics of interest.

In the future we expect to arrange get-togethers to run models - perhaps on a local and international basis!

Should you become the proud owner of one of our steam models we will invite you to enjoy free membership of the Silver Crest Association.

In the meantime, if we can assist you in any way, please don't hesitate to call us.

Yours sincerely


Winson Model Technology Ltd.
