I've no idea, I'm afraid; you'd have to contact him directly.

 

Sorry,

John Isherwood.

 

Good morning.

Appleby Model Engineering helpline, John Isherwood here, how may I help?

 

Mike.

What using the bits as masters for molds as there seems to be alot of interest?. If you dont fancy it what about wizard models he seems to take over other small suppliers 

 

Please understand that this NOT about me seeking to interfere in John Talbot's intellectual property rights, or in his decisions concerning his former productions.

 

I am merely seeking to distribute, to those who can use them, several thousand castings that were about to be destroyed.

 

PLEASE keep to this subject - indeed, there is little point now in further comment until such time as I am in possession of, and have sorted, the castings.

 

I wanted to let modellers know that the Appleby 4mm. range is not wholly defunct; albeit it will be a case of when they're gone, they're gone.

Thank you

 

I have heard so much about his 7mm kits but rarely seen them.

 

Ian G

I too was wondering that. His metals wagons I've seen are superb. I'd be very interested in a few.

I spoke to John very recently when I ordered some transfers, we discussed this very subject. My particular interest was for any remaining FPA chassis, 

 

I'm still interested if they are amongst those that survive

 

Regards

Thanks to John Talbot, I have now received the remaining 4mm. scale etches for raised I C I lettering on ICI bogie limestone hoppers, as produced RTR by Hattons, and in kit form by others. The stock level at present is in excess of 200 etches, and one etch is required per wagon.

Hattons still have stocks of the TOPS-era heavily weathered hoppers without ICI lettering;  https://www.hattons.co.uk/ici  ; these wagons can easily be backdated using the above etches, and my numbering transfers; (see Sheet BL183 at https://www.cctrans.org.uk/products.htm ).

 

The etches are available to purchase at a bargain price of £1.00 per etch, plus just £1.00 P&P for any quantity of etches; the etches will be despatched in a Jiffy-type bag.

 

The etches are sold on a strictly 'first come - first served; when they're gone, they're gone' basis; THERE WILL BE NO MORE!

 

For ordering information, go to https://www.cctrans.org.uk/products.htm . Payment will preferably be via BACS or Paypal; (in the latter case, add 10% of the order plus P&P total to cover the Paypal fee). Written orders with cheques can be accepted, but these orders will be cancelled if all etches are sold prior to receipt. Please include an e-mail address or SAE so that unsuccessful orders can be acknowledged.

 

It is anticipated that these etches will sell out very quickly - please do not delay if you can use them.

 

Regards,

John Isherwood,

Cambridge Custom Transfers.

Stupid question, how exactly do I order? Do I email you?
