Announcement    Hi! My name is Ray, and welcome to my shop! Here, you will find an assortment of 1/12th scale miniatures, hand made by myself.

Check out my blog: http://www.minibuilder.blogspot.com for how I build some of my listed items!

All items I list are made by me, by hand, from scratch, and one piece at a time. If I utilize pre-made parts in any way, I will clearly stipulate this in the description. The only power tool I use while building anything is my Dremel, mostly to sand curved areas, and to make various cuts for joints, like a router. Usually, using an Xacto knife, I hand cut and sand every piece out of sheetwood, unless otherwise specified.

I hope you see something you like, and if there are any questions or requests, please feel free to contact me, anytime!

As of 12-14-09 all bought items will be dated and either signed or initialed by me personally, and will also come with a certificate of authenticity when shipped.

I build all special requests in the order I receive them, to be fair. Please let me know if you need an item at a certain time, and I will let you know if I can get it done.


Thanks for visiting!

Returns and exchange details
At my cost, I will gladly repair any item damaged during shipping, as I try my best to make sure all items are packaged well, to arrive unscathed. Once I know the sent package has been delivered, damage MUST be reported IMMEDIATELY, or I am not responsible.

MAKE SURE YOU READ MY LISTINGS CAREFULLY! ALL ITEMS ARE MINIATURE! THEY ARE MEANT FOR DISPLAY, AND MINIATURE COLLECTORS! THEY ARE NOT TOYS!!!

THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS FOR ERRORS MADE REGARDING LIFE-SIZED ITEMS!
Payment
I have no choice but to accept all methods of payment Etsy has forced upon me, since my shop was threatened with closure if I didn't, including a POSTAL money order, or personal check. This action creates a FEE for this money to be transferred to MY bank, instead of my PAYAPL account. So, I will be adding this and/or all of these fees to the prices in my shop.

I LIKE MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT, SO, THEREFORE, I WILL NOT SHIP ANY ITEM(S) PAID FOR WITH A CHECK, MONEY ORDER, OR ANY OTHER MEANS, UNTIL ALL FUNDS ARE DEPOSITED INTO MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!! If this adds more days to the shipping time, you should have used paypal.
Shipping
Unless specified by the buyer BEFORE purchase, all items will be sent 1st class through the USPS at the rates shown in my shop, and I include a tracking number with each shipment. Anything special will be reflected in the price.

Shipping time will also be effected depending upon how the item was purchased. Please see my payment policies.
Additional policies and FAQs
I occasionally accept custom orders, so there may be a waiting list, since I create all my custom orders in the order I receive them, so please ask if you need your item at a certain time!

I have a full time real job, and normally work 6am-4:30pm Mon-Thurs. Thus, my mini time is mostly limited to the week-ends.

I sign or initial and date each item before shipment, and include a COA card, which is also signed and dated.

I am VERY stubborn regarding the Imperial measuring system we use here in the United States, and I will NOT use the metric system. Any items requested to be built using the metric system will have all dimensions rounded up or down at my convenience.
