Terms of Use

Nautilus Models reserves the right to alter, modify or update these Terms of Use at any time.


Nautilusmodels.com offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee for 30 days from the time of customer receipt of the item. Within that time, re-sellable items may be returned for any reason. Re-sellable items shall be in a like-new state, with all parts present and attached to sprues in an original condition box.

Customers returning re-sellable items will be offered a credit for future purchases, less shipping and handling, to be used at nautilusmodels.com or our retail shop, AAA Hobby Supply, 1508 Roswell Rd, Marietta, Georgia, 30062. No cash refunds or credit card charge backs (including PayPal payments) are given.

Email nautilusmodels@bellsouth.net with any questions about arrangements.


Exchanges shall be accomplished by placing an order for the desired item, and then returning the original item as described above. If the exchange is due to the customer ordering the wrong item originally, we will credit the original purchase price, excluding shipping and handling. However, if the exchange is necessary due to a mistake in shipment from our warehouse, we will credit the original purchase price, including shipping and handling. Please contact nautilusmodels@bellsouth.net for further information.

Order Cancellations

At the customer’s request, orders will be cancelled and refunds will be made for orders that have not yet begun the fulfillment process. Allow 2-3 weeks for a credit to appear on a credit card, or a check to be issued. However, if an order has already been processed, refunds will be made according to our returns policy above.


Although every effort is taken to ensure the exactness of stock status at Nautilusmodels.com, we make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the accuracy of such information. Should an item be on backorder, the interested customer will be notified and offered the option to either wait for the item to be stocked, accept a credit for the amount of the backordered item to be used at nautilusmodels.com, or accept a complete refund. If the customer chooses to wait for the item(s), other items which may have been ordered with the out-of-stock item(s) will be shipped if the customer so chooses, and then the backordered item(s) will be shipped at a later date for no additional shipping and handling charge.

Most packages are shipped via the US Postal Service First Class or Priority Mail services. Other services can be requested. Overseas shipments are sent via Global Priority Mail to participating countries and Air Mail Letter Post to other locations. Due to repeated “lost mail” Nautilus Models will not accept orders with shipping addresses in the following countries unless alternate shipping is arranged: Laos, Indonesia, South Africa, Nigeria, Botswana, Argentina, China (Hong Kong is excluded), Russia, Latvia, Cambodia and Vietnam.

Nautilusmodels.com does not guarantee the results of any instruction, design or project, nor does it guarantee the quality of any manufacture of any item presented on the site and disclaims all liability for unsatisfactory results.

For more specific warnings and other valuable information about the proper use of crafting tools products, please see the manufacturer's written instructions accompanying the crafting tool or product.
