Latest News and Announcements  

Aerotight Nuts back in stock
Ptosed 16/5/24


After a long wait we have finally been able to re-stock with M3, M4 M5 and M6 Aerotight all steel self locking nuts.
These are an excellent reusable thread locking solution where vibration is a problem along with high temperatures making nylocs unsuitable. So particularly good for securing problematic engine silencers.
You can find the range here.

Our Pricing, Post and Packing philosophy

The prices quoted for each item is the price you pay - VAT is included.

At ModelFixings we think we have the fairest post and package policy around. Each of our items are graded according to weight and the ordering system automatically calculates a true value of postage and packing costs. There are limitations to the shopping cart software which means we cannot be as exact as we may like, but nonetheless we are sure you will be pleasantly surprised at the P&P costs. There is a maximum P&P charge, after which we pay the rest.

Unlike many commercial websites, you can see exactly what the shipping costs for selected items will be before you have to enter any personal details.
Just select the shipping zone on the order form and click on 'update' and the shipping will be displayed.
