Welcome To Modelnerds Model Kits.......
Looking for a better deal for your modelling $$$$?
has literally hundreds of pre-loved kits/decals/books/accessories for
you to browse through at REALISTIC prices that are way below current
Every modeller wants (and deserves) the odd bargain and we have heaps of them on offer.
Who are we and what are we on about ?
we buy collections and then re-sell these back to the general public.
This gets a lot of rare, good kits back in circulation in the modelling
community and into good homes. In the past we have sourced these
collections from estate sales, hobby shop run outs or people changing
scales/getting out of the hobby.
pay good hard cash $$$$ for collections of kits from 10 to 1000+. We
have been doing this for over 5 years now and are currently up to our
6th major collection that we are processing at the moment. Got kits to
sell ? Contact us for a bulk price. Read the Collection Buying FAQ on our Conditions
page. We are not tyre-kickers and offer a fair market price, via
negotiation for your kits. We are mainly interested in military kits,
but also consider decals/reference/accessories, etc. We are less
enthused about ship/car/truck kits but happy to discuss all options.
have a good eye for 2nd hand kits and have been dealing in these for 5
years or so through Ebay and the Aussie modelling sites such as AMI
& Hyperscale. After long years of frustration with Ebay we decided
to go it alone and sell direct to the public through our on-line store.
No bidding, what you see on the store is what we have. New stuff is
added all the time and we are firm believers in the retail mantra of
"turnover, turnover, turnover" and price our kits accordingly.

ITEMS WITH AN (M) PREFIX ORDERING INFO
to the nature of our business, we source items from all over
Australia. Hence we have had to established storage facilities in both
Melbourne, Vic & Ballina, Northern NSW, in order to keep the price
of our stock as low as possible. As a result of this we are unable to
combine items ordered from each location into a single parcel for
delivery. Hence, if you place a single order for items located in both
Melbourne & Ballina, the postage charge on your final invoice will
reflect the total for postage of multiple parcels from different source
locations. Items stored in Melbourne are prefixed with (M), so this
should make it easy for you to see what you have ordered and understand
where it is being shipped from and how the postage charge on your
invoice is calculated. We will also let you know how many parcels you
can expect to receive when we send your final invoice If you have any
queries regarding your order or ordering, please don't hesitate to
Important Notice RE: Bone Yard Items
had introduced the "Bone Yard" specifically as a section that contained
Bent, Incomplete, Damaged or started kits. The prices in this section
are much lower than even our normal low prices to account for the
defects that may be present in these kits (and are listed in their
description). We urge all purchasers to FULLY READ the
description prior to purchasing these items, as this is the
responsibility of the purchaser. We have responsibly listed the defects
and cannot then account for complaints received by customers that have
skipped this step. Due to the mainly 2nd hand nature of our business we
come across kits with faults all the time and rather than consigning
them to the dump, offer them here at cheap prices, so that they can be
used for parts/find a good home. If a rare kit is $5.00 or $10.00 then there is probably some issues with it
