28th January   Bristol 0 Gauge show

3rd March       Gauge 0 Guild Kettering

2nd June         Gauge 0 Guild Doncaster

 

Come along to our stand and be first with the latest!!

So that is a wagon at one show...  a coach at another show...  and a loco at the third show.

 

You could at least suggest which one where!

Well, it's 28 January here in New Zealand already - how about a peek at what Bristolians are about to find out ?  The imagination's running wild......

Saw some samples at the Bristol 'O' Gauge show today, very nice indeed they were too.

Hello I've been waiting for the Kettering "New model" release description but due to snow it has been delayed.

 

Any clue what it is to be?  I'm planning some spends and want to know if I've got to put all my eggs in one Ixion/Minerva basket or can I spread it about a bit, like.

Probably a snowplow. :jester:

 

Sorry. Coat, hat, etc... :blush:

We will make an announcement shortly. Don't worry, the announcement may be a little late, but the model won't be; not our style.

........*&^%$£.....another week has gone buy since the proposed new Minerva Models announcement at Kettering and since then I've read that you are waiting for some paperwork before making the announcement?

 

Go on give us a clue, please.

 

I'm trying to put together my Spring shopping list and I don't want to lose out on a quality model for my stock.

For instance is it a Loco, wagon or passenger item, that at least would give a clue to expected costing.  Also I'm sure its availability was to be imminent but I could have just wished that.

Looking forward to hearing something soon.

Letting the cat out of the bag even at this late stage may not make make business sense otherwise it would be in the public domain if this was not the case.  Unfortunately 'fishing' for  infomation is also a tactic used by competition to gain a competitive edge, so unfortunately we have to wait a little longer.  It's nice that this small company is committed to producing products in a very reasonable time unlike another company I won't mention.

Hello greenmodelmonkey while I can understand your comments can I point out that the cat was supposed to be out of the bag at Kettering.and only snow stopped that happening.

I suppose if I read your comment about business sense then the delay now would also have happened then as that is the only way the parts fit ie there is an unforeseen delay to the build timetable.

 

They are a great company and all the products I have of theirs are wonderful which is why I wanted to know what was up and coming as I was working to the Kettering timetable.

Barnaby, totally understand where you are coming from and I am also very eager myself. For info I was also working to another suppliers timetable in the past and they kept missing the deadline by years! ;-)

Can you at least tell us how many wheels?

 

It'll depend how many of the item you buy...
