Condition Definition

When you read the descriptions of my models you will see the same descriptive terms cropping up, words like 'Excellent', 'Good' & 'Fair'. While these are always a matter of judgement the list below gives an idea of the criteria I use to set these labels.

  • Excellent Plus - Not only is the model in perfect shiny condition, the box or packaging is pristine too
  • Excellent - No chips or blemishes to the finish of the model, packaging is complete and mostly unmarked
  • Very Good - There may be some small chips or blemishes on the model, the packaging may have a little wear. The model is complete in full working order
  • Good - The model is complete, undamaged and in working order. There could be some light playwear or displaywear and chipping. Packaging may be damaged or absent
  • Fair - There could be significant wear and paint loss, the model may be incomplete and/or not in full working order
  • Damaged - There is breakage or distortion to the model and/or very significant paint loss
  • Repainted - This can vary between the previous owner being a small child who got out their paint box one day and had a go and a professional restoration or code 3 model. You have to read the description and look at the pictures

Codes

  • Code 1 - A regular production line product from a recognized manufacturer
  • Code 2 - A non-catalogue variation of the model produced by the manufacturer as a special short run or one-off
  • Code 3 - A version never produced by the manufacturer, an individual or company has stripped and remade the model to make a new version.
