    Just a quick update: we completed the purchase of Gladiator from Geoff this week. Now for the long job of restocking and learning how to do the business!
    Please bear with us while we get up and running again. Happy to hear suggestions of what kits need to be re-introduced first.

    Just to let you know that the process of restocking has begun. Kits should be available from about March. Most wagon kits are available now with limited availability of some loco and coach kits.

    A long time since any posts on this old thread.........

    Just wanted to give notice that there will be a price increase on most of the range effective 1st July. We have decided to make all prices inclusive of post and packing charges so the headline price rise looks a bit frightening. After taking into account P&P the actual rise is much less. We have been able to hold prices since September 2018 and do regret that we need to do this.

    Meanwhile kits are free of charges for post and packing at the current prices. A number of the more popular kits are now out of stock but subject to our suppliers delivering on time (and me being able to get a flight from Taiwan) we expect to have everything in stock at the end of July. If you want something that is currently out of stock then it can be secured at the old price for a deposit of £50 and delivery as soon as back in stock.

    And there was me hoping for a WT discount on a LNER U1 :bowdown:

    Only pulling your leg, but hopefully grab one from you one day.

    You can always ask! Definitely a discount for two..........:)
     
  8. Just out of interest when are you likely to have the LNER U1 back in stock?

    Hopefully before the end of July. We are waiting on etches (and strangely enough boxes) but should have everything else available already. There is a trial flight from Taipei to London later this month and the possibility of flights resuming next month, so I am confident of being able to get back.

    I ordered a crane jib kit from Gladiator Models yesterday and it has arrived today in the post. Fantastic service! :cool:

    Once I've caught up with my other projects I reckon I'll be putting another order in with Gladiator Models.

    I am very impressed with not only the service but also the quality of the kit.:)
