The EP is looking great Ellis! Quick question, when do you expect to take payment for these, I don't recall providing my card details as part of my pre-order? Thanks

Hi there,

 

We're still expecting delivery in Q1 of next year so will take payment prior to dispatch then :).

 

All the best,

Ellis.

Ellis, since I pre-ordered some of your models including Presflos, have you already got any informations about dealing with continental customers (as me) from 2021 on?

 

Thanks.

 

Hi Frank,

 

Sorry for the delay.

 

As far as I am aware, sending goods via post (Royal Mail, UPS, DHL etc.) remains the same.

 

I have been reading up and can't see anything changing in terms of import duties, VAT or customs declarations.

 

I believe the only change is for exporting/importing of goods between businesses - however I could be wrong!

 

All the best,

Ellis.

They look excellent Ellis, one which I think needs double checking is the circle logo on the yellow one, it looks too small if I compare it too photos and the transfers I have from First Class Kits?

Agreed, the circle does appear a little larger in diameter https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/brpresflo/e37849e2e

Hi Ellis, worth checking again as I am 99.9% certain you will need to do a customs declaration when sending abroad although I envisage the process will be the same as sending to Australia for example today.

That looks much better. Also nice to see the inclusion of the spare name board on the 4a variant as some did still have them in this livery until the mid 70s.

Evening all,

Hope you're all keeping well.

We've got a number of updates on the Presflos for you, numbered below for ease of reading.

1. I'll start with the bad news... unfortunately the release date on these has been pushed back to Summer of this Year. It's nothing Covid related, more myself wanting to get things right and not accounting for a couple of processes and also the fact they'll now be coming by sea as a-pose to air. Very sorry if this causes any inconveniences to anyone, but we're working hard to make them as close to perfect as possible/

2. We'll have some decorated samples in March - which includes a yellow Blue Circle, a Bauxite 'Tunnel Cement' and a Grey 'Blue Circle' variant.

3. We've added another variant to the range! Our ref: E73-1-8A, B, C & U (for the various running numbers & for the un-numbered version). This represents the TOPs numbered grey 'Blue Circle' wagon, but this time with the advertising board as shown in the attached CAD. 

4. All art sheets are now completed with some alterations having been made to the sheets originally posted on here. I've attached some of the altered art sheets for your viewing pleasure.

Anything else please feel free to get in touch.

All the best,
Ellis.
