COVID.19 Virus

Important Announcement regarding your orders.

(update 08/3/21) As the Covid situation continues to be a problem we are maintaining our post office runs at once a week ONLY (Thursdays).

We are still more than happy to take your parts orders by e mail or telephone in the usual way, process it in the usual way, & have it ready to post on a weekly basis. But in the interests of safety for all concerned, orders will NOT be posted twice weekly as they usually would be until the crisis is over.

OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS SHOULD ALSO NOTE THERE CAN BE VERY LONG DELAYS AT AIRPORTS & CUSTOMS CLEARANCE FACILITIES. If anything this situation is getting worse not better. In particular, delivery services to Germany & the Netherlands are VERY badly affected with post taking 4-6 weeks to be delivered.

We apologise for the disruption to normal service, but lets all do our utmost to stay safe & defeat this thing

Long Delays on Restocking Sold Out Items

We can only apologise for the number of items constantly Out Of Stock. Covid 19 & Brexit has had, & is still having, an effect on the turn round time for re-stocking resin parts & kits. Parts have been on order for 4 months in some cases !!

This applies also to etch parts, again a 3-4 months wait is not uncommon now. Other imported items required to complete kits are also increasingly difficult to get. K&S 3/16" aluminium tube for example (used for the PE exhaust stack kits) has been on order with the importers for over 3 months & was today delayed yet again for the 3rd time.

Retirement Date Set

A date has been decided on to effectively cease trading & retire. On 28th February 2022 KFS will have been trading for 35 years, building commision models, writing for the original TMW magazine, attending shows such as the IPMS SMW show, Truckfest, Rugby & Gaydon, supplying model parts, decals, etch parts & materials to truck & military modellers across the globe.

I feel this will be the right time to move to a different phase of life. There is a possibility (still to be explored & confirmed) that KFS will pass into new hands & continue trading, not only with the existing range but very possibly with a whole new expansion into new kit projects. This however is NOT yet confirmed or guaranteed, talks are at a very early stage. More news will follow in due course.

We will continue to trade throughout this year as normal & promise to keep customers up to date as & when news is available.

Data Security Statement.

a) We do not store sensitive customer data (i.e credit card info) electronically in any form whatsoever. Names & postal addresses of regular customers only are stored on file for ease of printing postage labels. If you order regularly & think you may be on file, you have the right to be removed from that file if you so wish. Customer names & address are NEVER shared with ANY outside party at ANY time for ANY reason.

b) All telephone & written/printed orders are destroyed by incineration after 30 days. This period is allowed in case of loss, delay, damage, query or complaint only. Any such written/printed orders are retained under lock & key for that period. All credit/debit card 3 digit security codes are obliterated as soon as the order is processed & passed. Complete credit/debit card data is NOT stored in any form.

c) We keep a separate written daily order record for 1 year. This is for order tracking & accounting purposes only & contains;- your surname, date of order, order value, method of payment & country of destination for the order. No addresses or sensitive payment data iare stored with that basic daily information.

e) Customer e mail addresses are stored in the usual manor automatically by the e mail client. This file is regularly 'cleaned out' & reduced to regular recognised customer e mail addresses only. We NEVER share e mail addresses with an outside party at ANY time for ANY reason.

f) All PayPal order e mails, quotes, & confirmation of payments back from PayPal are retained for 60 days only. This is simply to ensure packages arrive & are not subject to loss, damage, query or claim.

Exports. (UK Customs, VAT & the Brexit effect)

1) From 1st January 2021, all KFS goods sent out of the UK both to the EU & the rest of the world will be zero rated for vat. For example EU countries will now be treated the same as non EU countries & will not pay UK vat. They 'may' however face their own import duty & fees when the goods arrive in the destination country.

2) MINIMUM ORDER VALUE FROM Jan 1st 2021. However, the additional workload of increased documentation, paperwork & export recording/reporting means we will be applying a minimum order value of £50.00GBP (@ list prices & not including shipping) for ALL OVERSEAS orders, both EU & Non EU, from January 1st. (See Ordering & Payments for examples)

3) The maximum export order value allowed by post is £900.00GBP per package including postage costs.

4) Long delays are being experienced at customs clearance in most European countries on goods from the UK. Germany & the Netherlands in particular. This causes a loss of tracking information between barcodes being scanned on leaving the UK & being scanned next when handed to postal delivery organisations. Please expect deliveries to the EU to take at least 4 weeks.
