About Gold Medal Models

    A HEARTY WELCOME TO YOU FROM GOLD MEDAL MODELS, SUPPLIER OF AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS FOR MODEL SHIPBUILDERS AND MODEL RAILROADERS!

    (WARNING! Complete model ship kits are NOT sold here - see your local hobby dealer for those)

    Thanks for stopping by! We hope you enjoy our updated and expanded website.

    Gold Medal Models was established in 1985 to produce exhibition quality detail parts for builders of plastic model ship kits. In 1992, GMM added N-scale and HO-scale model railroad detail accessories to its range and our model railroad products now total more than 60 at the present time.

    Our ship fittings line has grown to become world famous for its quality and value. In fact, it has now become the de facto standard against which all similar products are compared. One of the reasons for this is GMM's unwavering dedication not only to historical accuracy, but also its user-friendly designs which make GMM products much easier to use than competing brands. Even our instruction sheets have set a new standard that is hard to beat with their lavish use of clearly drawn illustrations and step-by-step assembly methods that make building a model ship with GMM fittings a breeze.

    Our model railroad accessories have also proven to be very popular and successful, with numerous hobby magazine cover stories featuring GMM details prominently displayed. In fact, our products have been featured in more magazine articles and have appeared on more magazine covers than all similar products combined!

    And serious competitors have also grown to rely on GMM for that extra edge that earns them top prizes in contests around the world. Just like the magazine authors mentioned above, competitors using GMM products on their model ships have won more awards than those using all other competing brands combined!

    So whether you're a serious competitor, or a hobbyist who simply refuses to settle for second best, Gold Medal Models is your kind of company. We speak your language because we, too, are enthusiastic modelbuilders with the highest possible standards. And we'll always keep working to raise them.

Product Information
    Due to the extensive product ranges available, we have published a number of lists in different orders for convenience of use. If you simply want a hardcopy list for reference or to order direct from Gold Medal Models then please print off the appropriate list in product number order.

Ordering Information

    All orders must be sent via regular mail (with the exception of PayPal orders - see below) to the address located above, on the left. There are two ways to order your products.

      1. You can use the blank form provided by clicking on the link at the upper left. Include Part Number, Description, Price, and Quantity.

      2. When you're browsing through this site, you'll notice that all of the products listed are actually located on an order form itself along with every other product in that category. You can print that form out and fill in the 'Qty.' (Quantity) space on the far right. Any 'Qty.' space left empty will be disregarded.

    All orders must be sent with payment. GMM accepts personal checks, cashier's checks, money orders or cash. U.S. Funds only. GMM is not set up for credit cards. Make all checks payable to : Gold Medal Models

    Overseas Buyers : Cheques must have these three items : 1. Funds must be in U.S. Dollars; 2. Funds must be drawn on a U.S. Bank; 3. A computer-generated routing number must be visible along cheque's lower edge. If a check is sent to us that is lacking one or more of these items, it will be returned to you and your order will be delayed. If in doubt, use a postal money order.

    NOTICE FOR CUSTOMERS ALL OVER THE WORLD: GMM NOW TAKES PAYPAL ORDERS! TO PLACE A PAYPAL ORDER, FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:

    NOTE: Due to new government regulations coming into effect on January 1, 2011, we will be limiting PayPal transactions to amounts of $100.00 or more effective on that date. All PayPal orders not meeting that threshold will be refunded immediately. Orders totaling less than $100.00 USD can be purchased with postal money orders, checks (domestic), bank cheques (outside USA), or U.S. currency. Be sure to use some form of secured mail service (certified, registered, etc.) when sending currency.

    1. PayPal ordering is just as fast as credit card ordering and will allow you to greatly speed up the delivery of your GMM products. If you haven't already done so, you must first open your own PayPal account. To visit the PayPal home page, go to this site: PayPal.com

    2. Add up the cost of all the items you wish to order. Next, add $5.00 to cover the PayPal fee. NOTE: Use only U.S. Dollars when ordering via PayPal.

    (Example - One No. 350-22 (1/350 Essex @ $50.00), one No. 350-22A (1/350 Gold PLUS Essex Detail set @ $50.00), one No. 350-26 (1/350 WW2 USN Aircraft Parts @ $26.00), one No. 350-6D (1/350 WW2 USN Aircraft Decals @ $8.00) = $134.00. Now add the $5.00 PayPal fee: $134.00 + $5.00 = $139.00.)

    Finally, add the shipping charge ($2.50 USD - U.S. Dollars - for USA, Canadian, or Mexican orders, or 15% for air mail to all other countries.)

    Examples: the final total for the above order sent to a North American address would be $141.50 ($134.00 + $5.00 PayPal fee + $2.50 shipping = $141.50.) Or, the final total for the same order sent to an overseas address would be $159.10 USD ($134.00 + $5.00 PayPal fee = $139.00 USD + 15% Air Mail - $20.10 USD = $159.10 USD.)

    3. Enter your list of items in the "Notes" section of the on-line PayPal order form. If you cannot do this, send your written order to us via e-mail right after you send us your PayPal payment. NEVER use attachments - we cannot open many attachments for various reasons.

    4. Send your completed order and payment to the same address you just used to contact us: goldmedl@rockisland.com

    We normally ship within 24 hours of receiving your order. Of course, holidays and other interruptions can delay this by a few days, but almost never more than one week. You should have your order no later than two weeks after your place your PayPal order, often much sooner.

    Unfortunately, we're not able to accept other types of orders by e-mail or phone. We only accept non-PayPal orders via regular mail.

    HOW TO ORDER GMM PRODUCTS USING A CREDIT CARD

    Although Gold Medal Models doesn't accept credit cards, many of our dealers do. See our "Links" page for some of the mail order firms that carry our range and accept credit cards. This list will be expanding as more and more dealer websites are added to it.

    NOTE: Not all GMM products are stocked by all dealers. You may experience a delay while the dealer orders products from us to fill your order. Our stocks are always well maintained so that any orders placed to us directly will experience little or no delay. We normally ship the same day your order arrives here.
