  1. Really nice work on this Adam. I've built a ton of Warhammer stuff myself so 1/56 is a familiar scale for me. Whose kit is this? It looks much nicer than most of the Warlord Games kits I've seen, but that could just be because your paint job is so well done. I have a few of the lovely resin kits from Die Waffenkammer to build.
  2. At Wonderland Models we have created a Buyer's Guide to Tools For Model Making. I'm sure most of you will already be familiar with most of the tools on offer, but it can't hurt to take a peek. This article is a big help to anyone just starting out in model making, someone looking to get a model kit as a gift and unsure what tools they will need, or someone just getting back into model making and finding everything available these days a bit overwhelming. Feel free to share this with anyone you think will benefit from giving it a read. We also have a numbe of other useful buyer's guides to read, and plan to add more.
  3. Hi guys. thought I'd chime in to help clear up the details with the spray paints. Where we have stated both water-based and solvent-based in our descriptions, we had taken this from the descriptions from Humbrol when they came out, but it doesn't make it really clear (I'll start going through and changing the descriptions). The acrylic paint itself is non-toxic and solvent free, so once it has been painted onto something you don't have to worry about children playing with something that contains toxic chemicals. However, when put into a spray can there needs to be a load of extra chemicals added to stop it drying in the can and in the propellant, and these are different for enamel and acrylic paint sprays. What's causing the issue with the acrylic spray varnish damaging the enamel is that the acrylic spray paints contain acetone. It is best to use enamels with enamels and acrylics with acrylics, especially when it comes to spray paints. While all of the coloured spray paints in their range are now acrylic, Humbrol do still produce enamel spray varnishes to be used with their enamel paints.
  4. Albion Alloys are out of stock and waiting for a delivery from the main European importer in Germany. Albion Alloys hope to have their re-stocks at the end of March.
  5. Important Customer Notice 04/01/21

    Following on from the Scottish Government announcement today regarding Level Four restrictions Wonderland Models is not allowed to welcome visitors into the store at the moment although a "Click and Collect" service is available. However the government is encouraging mailorder firms to stay open so our site in Edinburgh is still processing internet orders every day. We will let you know if and when this changes.

    We have seen an increase in the number of orders we are receiving but nothing we can't handle and a lot of express orders still go out the same day. Please be aware though that the guaranteed delivery dates eg 24 hour are are all suspended. No delivery date guarantees are in force from any carrier at this time. Our hard working staff are working extremely most days to try to keep up with demand and appreciate your patience at the moment.

    Model paints orders take much longer to get ready so there are 2-3 day delays on these orders. Please be patient. We are going as fast as we can!

    Please note that we do NOT accept any orders over the telephone. All orders must be placed online. Make sure you give us your email address and mobile phone number so you can receive courier notifications regarding the date and time of your delivery.

    When placing your order please double check that your delivery address is correct bearing in mind you will probably be getting the parcel sent to your home rather than your work.

    Currently we are providing only a very limited telephone service. This is because we have so many orders to process and fewer staff to do them. Best contact is by email.

    At this time we are not sending parcels outside Europe until further notice.

    Thank you again for all your patience and understanding and we hope you all stay safe.

  7. Keep Calm, Stay Safe and Build Models this Easter Holiday Weekend. Thanks to all our wonderful customers for their patience while we tried to get all the orders out before the weekend.

  8. A message to our customers The COVID-19 global crisis is affecting us all. At Wonderland Models our first priority is to maintain public health in-line with Government advice, while aiming to continue serving our customers both online and in store. Where it is safe to do so, we are keeping our store in Edinburgh open - colleagues and customers should follow government guidelines and not come in to store if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Please visit NHS 111 for more information. We may have to vary store opening times due to staff availability or if the Government gives guidance to do so. We recommend where possible to use our online store, this way you can browse safely on your own device, order online and reduce contact with others. Royal Mail and our couriers DPD and Fedex are continuing to collect and deliver orders daily. Most of our suppliers are continuing to provide a fast, efficient service which is enabling us to hold good stocks of important lines but unfortunately delays may occur due to circumstances beyond our control. In order to keep you updated with your delivery progress, please ensure we have your mobile number and email address when placing an order so you can be updated by SMS and email. In summary: All internet orders will continue as normal. All telephone lines will be open from 9.30am until 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am until 6pm on Saturday. The shop will be open as normal. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide further detail in due course. We would like to thank you all for your understanding. The Wonderland Models Team
