STOCK NUMBERING & CATEGORIES
The Sierra Hotel Models stock number system differs quite a bit from standard stock number system most resin aftermarket consumers are accustomed to. In light of potential growth and better stock management, our stock numbering system is grouped in specific categories. Each specific category will dictate each product stock number series, according to their grouping. All categories are numbered by scale first, then by a prime 3rddigit number; most of which are based after real military aircraft systems. For example; 32300 covers all 1/32nd scale Landing Gear and LG Wheel Well accessories. Please take the time to read the category descriptions (under the products link) to get familiar with our system.
Please note that there will be available items which will be out of numerical sequence. These will normally show a stock number with no nomenclature, other than a “Coming Soon” notation. This is a result of grouping common subject accessories that are either in work or projected as a future release.
All transactions will be paid through PayPal®. Money Orders (No Checks) will be accepted on a case by case basis if the customer does not have a PayPal®Account.
Please contact: [email protected] for money order payment inquires.
RETURNS DUE TO DEFECT
Unfortunately, a resin aftermarket accessory or a kit is not always perfect in fit and/or 100% accurate. This is not a defect. A resin accessory item is considered defective if it is “short-shot” (not fully formed), has multiple pin holes, bee-bee cists, and/or is deformed. Broken parts are parts which have broken away anywhere but from its sprue attach point. Missing parts are parts called out in the instructions by photo, number, and/or nomenclature, which are not included inside the box or package.
RETURN PROCESS & POLICY
Procedures on returns may vary depending on the nature and condition of the item being returned. If a part is missing, broken, or defective, there is no need to return the entire kit or package. We will replace missing items, just provide an invoice number. In the case of defective and broken items, we may request the return of that item before a replacement is made. We request the return of all “Defective Parts” to track trends and possible problems with the resin casting procedures. This will help ensure the quality level of future resin accessories produced by Sierra Hotel Models.
