  1. The announcement is OO, not O. I should have clarified that! Cheers! Fran
  2. Hi everyone, As you may already know, our next UK show is the Warley show at the NEC in Birmingham, November 23rd and 24th! We will be there to take your pre-orders, answer your questions, discuss future projects and more! We will also be launching something very big indeed at the show on the Saturday morning at 10:15am, which will of course appear online on our website, social media and of course here too for those of you not travelling to the show! What could it be?? hmmm.... All arrows lead to our stand, B46 marked below! See you there! Cheers, Fran
  3. Duly ordered, just dont tell my MD Great stuff from Rails and Heljan!
  4. Hi Sorabain, We will have to make the pan durable enough to withstand use of course. We will also carry spare parts like we do for all our models for warranty repair etc. The point I was making was the sale of the pan as a separate detail part may not be practical due to the mechanism involved, mating it to other models etc. We will have more news on offering it as a detail part when the design is signed off and testing is complete. Cheers! Fran
  5. We should see them in December, our tooling amendments from a snag list are currently under way, so they will come first. Once completed we we see them on decoration samples. Cheers! Fran
  6. Hi David, I understand your confusion completely and we are always happy to clarify where we can. It's important to remember that we are a young company (18 months in the British market now) and growing rapidly. We are learning too all the time, and we dont get everything right, but we try where possible to learn as we go too. We decided to offer only in stock items initially to trade as an experiment to see how it would work for us as a business after initially selling direct. To that end we have offered HUOs in 00 and 0, PCAs and Cemflos to trade. We had previously taken a lot of pre-orders on PFAs, PTAs, Mark 5s, Deltics and 92s it was felt that it would be very messy to offer these to trade too, so, for now, these will stay as exclusively with us or special editions with some retailers in the case of Deltics, 92s and PFAs. This may change once they arrive, and will be dealt with on a model by model basis. In order to gain further data on opening up to trade and making a transition to a mainstream manufacturer, we decided to open the JSAs to retail from the outset to help form a decision on a retail model based business. So far it seems to be going well, and we have received great feedback with retailers who have been selling our models, and some have offered great guidance to us too. This is a 'growing pains' phase for us. We understand it can be a tad confusing but we are delighted that we can support the local traders with our models too, and do our level best to get our models into the hands of all modellers, especially at a local level by those who want to support their local model shop, and those who are not internet savvy. I hope this makes sense and helps clears things up somewhat. Cheers! Fran
  7. Hi there, Could you email us on [email protected] and we can look at your issue and resolve it for you? Thanks, Fran
  8. Hi Fat Controller, We’re working to make them look realistic, but a range of sizes might be cost prohibitive on a tooling cost consideration, But we will see what we can rustle up! Cheers! Fran
  9. hi Hayley As the pan is fully functioning it may be difficult to offer it as a separate detail part due to It’s mechanism. We will try our best to sort something, but might not be practical. We won’t have a sample for warley I’m afraid, the pan is taking a lot of engineering, but we will have a full update on the 92 in the next week or so, so keep an eye out for that! Hi Charles, The plan at the moment is to keep them direct, other than special editions with Rails, Locomotion, DPS etc., but that may change in the future, it depends how successful our trade experiment works out to be, we want to take our time and make the right call on that as it’s a massive decision for our business. Cheers! Fran
  10. Hi there, The JSAs are open to trade and are on the websites of many of our stockists. Our PFAs are only available direct with us. Your local shop may just need to restock or place an order with us. It’s worth asking them if you are looking for any items. We also take orders direct of course, if your shop is unable to supply. Cheers! Fran
  11. Yes, we will be looking to include this feature. Cheers! Fran
  12. Hi Baz, Yes, it opens at both ends. Cheers! Fran
  13. Hi Guy, Sure, will have to wait till Monday though I’m afraid! Cheers! Fran
