Making-History Models

The models on Making-History are available for sale unless noted otherwise. I do not claim to be a professional modeller however; none of them is perfect and my errors are laid bare in the articles. The list below is maintained in real time; if the model is listed it is still available.

The nature of plastic scale model kits is such that shipping will always involve some inherent risk of damage. I pack them securely using a method that has proven to be effective. I cannot guarantee there will be no damage however, and therefore the buyer assumes the shipping risk.

I charge actual shipping for models; you’ll be contacted within 24hrs to arrange details. For budget purposes, assume shipping and packaging to be in the region of $50AUD. Contact Me for details.

Commission Builds

We also take on commission work; please use the Contact Me page to request options and rates. There is a discount on the price of the commission build if the model has an associated story that is subsequently published.
