Yea I bought the 6x6 Chimera conversion kit and the trench railed and a couple other things from them.
In terms of quality of the kit I was pretty happy with all of it, the casting was pretty decent.
But my issue was that I ordered in march and actually got the stuff in August. I mean I live in the uk so I expect it to take a while but 4 months is ridiculous. Might have been a one off mistake, but thats my experience and I won't be buying from them again.

Kits look bomb tho

Thank you so much for the comments, and for checking out this Discussion sir!

It was actually a headache dealing with the Vendor; initially, my Order was made at the end of December 2017, with additional Product added in a separate order in January 2018.

I paid for Shipping twice because I made two separate orders; however, I informed them that he could keep the extra ten dollars USD as an incentive to finish my two orders.
I tried to follow-up on the order a month later by asking if there was any Tracking Information for shipment, to which the reply was the Vendor / Designer was dealing with poor health.

I was forced to open a PayPal Dispute to reclaim my Payment, at which time the Vendor complained;
I replied professionally saying my client would like to have their Army completed, and using PayPal Dispute Resolution I received my order after a lengthy wait!

I have to admit though that this is the second time I have ordered from Models and Minis, and the first time the order was late as well;
I had to chase after the owner through Facebook Messenger for four or five months to receive my first order.

Although every resin product I have ordered from Models and Minis are incredibly detailed and finely crafted, their Order Fulfillment has room for improvement.
However, after communication with the owner, we have made positive progress and I understand health issues are not only unforeseen, but expensive as well.

I greatly appreciate your input STG

I ordered something on the 25th of August and it was sent the 25th of October, I even had to contact Paypal to force action from the seller.

I got the order eventually, but wouldn't order from them again due to the long shipment and bad communication.

Hallo mijn vriend! It has been a long time since I visited the Netherlands, I sure learned a lot about Dutch football teams while i was there too...


Thank you so much for your Comments regarding Models and Minis, apart from the Reviews that are posted on his website there is not much support for us hobbyists.

I really felt bad bringing any kind of negativity to anyone but I feel it's just being fair and honest to let others know what to expect when doing business.



While the products from Models and Minis are excellent, the delivery / product fulfillment time is excessive and therefore I wanted to let others know ahead of time that there may be an unexpected wait...

I am also concerned that you had to contact Paypal to force action from the seller, did he ask you to close the Claim before he shipped your order as well?

No he didn't ask to close the claim, I wouldn't have done that anyway. I closed the claim myself when he posted the shipping details. During the PayPal claim, he kept saying that I would get my order eventually and he did ship it soon after.

And regarding Dutch football; it is not that great nowadays

After much improved communication from the owner, we have made positive progress and I understand health issues are not only unforeseen, but expensive as well.

I am wishing for the best of health as any illness is always unfortunate, and as I mentioned previously I really don't like being a "downer"



This order, I purchased parts to finish off my Imperial Guard / Astra Militarum "Motor Pool" of Chimera armoured carriers:





The first part is the Chimera Hazardous Engine Filter Hatch :, which i bought ten ( 10 )

https://www.modelsandminis.com/Chimera_Hazardous_Engine_Filter_Hatch/p2965327_14270788.aspx





Chimera Rear Hatch Conversion :, I bought five ( 5 ) as i had already purchase one and it is a fantastic bit !

https://www.modelsandminis.com/Chimera_Rear_Hatch_Conversion/p2965327_13975103.aspx







Then i added their latest product, four ( 4 ) of their Agrius Light Turret

I am glad to report major progress between Vendor and Buyer!

I made one Order at the end of June, on the 25th. and because the the Vendor and I chatted on Facebook Messenger I made a second order immediately the next day!

We determined that the future for Models and Minis was definitely looking positive as they were planning to attend the AMA-CON or Amarillo Comic Convention : https://www.libraryamacon.org/

Shortly after the weekend was over, I received G-mails informing me that the two Orders have been shipped out with USPS Tracking Information!

Well this is interesting; i mentioned to everyone what I was ordering, and yet no-one noticed that something showed up that is not on the list !


Here are the two Orders i placed with Models & Minis :


Order 1 :

[CEF01] Chimera Hazardous Engine Filter Hatch X 10

[CRH1] Chimera Rear Hatch Conversion X 5



Order 2 :

[ALT1] Agrius Light Turret Set X 3

* Note: shipping to Canada cost $ 10.00 so in a conversation on Facebook Messenger with Models & Minis, we agreed I would pay for three ( 3 ) turrets then include a note on the Order and I would receive four ( 4 ) turrets!!!



What did i receive ?!?



[ALT1] Agrius Light Turret Set X 4

[CRH1] Chimera Rear Hatch Conversion X 5

[CEF01] Chimera Hazardous Engine Filter Hatch X 14 ...


that's right, an extra FOUR ( 4 ) bits for FREE !!!!!



And that's not all; one of their Heavy Weapon Team Resin Movement Tray, here is the link: https://www.modelsandminis.com/Heavy_Weapon_Team_Resin_Movement_Tray/p2965327_18038458.aspx

ABSOLUTELY FREE !!!!!!!

That would be me. I have been watching this post, but have been somewhat loath to reply on it, to see what peoples feedback is without me commenting.

Benjamin is a customer who really gets into, and gets very excited about his work. To the point that, he was messaging me whilst I was in the ER after my first bout of heart issues (hence a large part of the delays) and I had to excuse myself from the chat for about 15 mins whilst I had my first of many chest X-rays.
I cannot say I mind much, it gave me something to do whilst hooked up to an EKG machine for 3 hours.

Alas no, i do not have the patience, time, nor the dexterity and skills to produce such works of art ...

Although i did research casting and mold-making, apparently it dates back to prehistoric times!

In order to learn more, i tried to join my local Pottery Guild but found out there was a 5-month wait list :O

That would be me. I have been watching this post, but have been somewhat loath to reply on it, to see what peoples feedback is without me commenting.

Benjamin is a customer who really gets into, and gets very excited about his work. To the point that, he was messaging me whilst I was in the ER after my first bout of heart issues (hence a large part of the delays) and I had to excuse myself from the chat for about 15 mins whilst I had my first of many chest X-rays.
I cannot say I mind much, it gave me something to do whilst hooked up to an EKG machine for 3 hours.


Haha! That's amazing, such dedication on his part! I stand corrected.

I do hope you're feeling better, great job on the conversion kits. I'll pick up an order when I can decide on enough stuff to justify UK postage.

Alas no, i do not have the patience, time, nor the dexterity and skills to produce such works of art ...

Although i did research casting and mold-making, apparently it dates back to prehistoric times!

In order to learn more, i tried to join my local Pottery Guild but found out there was a 5-month wait list :O



Your enthusiasm for Models and Minis is so pure, I'm a convert!

Must ask Jimbolina25, is that a new chimera conversion kit. It looks different than what I remembered.

The wheel kit? Yep it's a new version. Solid, new designed wheels, and separate stowage options.

Thank you very much, I'm a friendly Canadian who has faith in our fellow Commonwealth citizens.

Also, i did some research and dug through posts started by jimbolina25 and was not only amazed but also stunned by his dedication to his work.

I mentioned that casting & mold-making dated back to prehistory; i have sculpting my own accessories on a miniature but never entire bits.

For example, i was inspired by the movie "Apocalypse Now" to sculpt cowboy hats with gold tassels and crossed sword insignia to the metal Cadian and Catachan Lieutenants using green stuff :





However, i am in awe of the bits and accessories created by Models and Minis as they are highly detailed with a minimal amount of work required to get them ready for the table!

Here are two photos, first showing the topside of the turret and the amazing detail :




Second shows the minimal amount of flash being removed with a Hobby Saw :




Here is the creator's example of his finished Agrius Tank Conversion Kit:

It appears that the 30% Off sale is still ongoing; make sure you take advantage of this generous offer!

I have had a blast assembled some custom six-wheeled APC similar to the M8 Greyhound, using a variety of resin bits!

Chapterhouse Studios Wheeled Chimera Kit, Zinge Industries Firing Port Hatch Covers, and three products from Models and Minis;
their Chimera Hazardous Engine Filter Hatch, Chimera Rear Hatch Conversion, and Agrius Light Turret Set.

My intention was to provide enough transportation for my Storm Trooper Strike Force, now called Tempestus Scions.
These would be fielded as Taurox Prime armoured transports with magnetixed weapon options, so far I have five assembled :
