Donate Kits

We require the following.  

  • Unstarted & Complete kits only.  Once glue or paint has touched the model we consider that to be started.  Complete in that all the parts are present, the instructions and decals are in good order. 

  • All instructions and decals must be present and undamaged

  • Unused materials and tools preferable.

  • Please take your time to consider whether donating to Models for Heroes is suitable and please read the Terms below.

Send kits, cheques, modelling materials to:

There are other locations around the UK that you can take donated kits directly too. Get in contact if you wish to deliver somewhere more local to yourself.

Please note that "by hand" donations are only accepted by appointment or courier only.  

Quick check before you send:

  • Remember to check the postage amount. We cannot afford to pay for inadequate postage or customs handling fees.

  • Make sure there is plenty of packaging material around your kits to prevent crushing underneath other packages in transit.

  • Modelling magazines in a "used" condition or over a year old cannot be accepted.

  • If sending liquids please check the consignment restrictions on flammable liquids with your courier. 

  • Wrap the paints/glues/thinners up well and do not allow a spill or vapor to escape.  We do not accept enamel paints.

  • Please do not send cash. You can send cheques to our address or direct via bank transfer or paypal.

  • Add your EMAIL to a note so we can email you a THANK YOU.   Sadly we don't have the resources to write letters to all donors.  But please understand that we deeply appreciate all of the support.

Donations of supplies including scale model kits and sundries will be scrutinised for quality.   Suitability of donated scale model kits and sundries will mainly relate to used and unused condition.

Scale model kits that are damaged, partly started, have missing instructions or decals or parts will be deemed unsuitable for donation. Scale model kits that are opened, complete and undamaged will be deemed suitable and organised into storage ready for donation. Materials donated will also be inspected for quality.  Materials deemed to be unsuitable will be sold or recycled for the financial benefit of Models for Heroes.

Unopened liquids including glues, paints and thinners are suitable for donation. Damaged, half empty liquids will be unsuitable for donation. Please do not send us enamel or lacquer paints, we do not recommend them for modelling sessions and it costs us to dispose of them.  Paints recieved that are not suitable will be sold or recycled to the financial benefit of Models for Heroes.
