ORDERING ENABLED

We are now open for business once more, I thank you all for your patience.

Note that from week commencing 8th July ordering will be disabled on Mondays and Tuesdays each week until further notice. Due to an increased volume of orders and various other factors I need to have a few days each week clear to catch up on order packing/shipping and stock replenishment activities.

I hope this will not be to much of an inconvenience for everyone but it is a necessary action I need to take in order to run the business more smoothly, at least until I can perhaps afford to hire an assistant.

Stay safe people regards John

ORDERING

Ordering will be reactivated this Wednesday. Anyone browsing the site may have already spotted the new releases, 3mm planes and the first of the new Eloi Federation models plus the airborne demolition drones.The airborne troopers and specialists sets will follow next week.

ORDERING

As previously notified in my last news message I will not be accepting orders for this week commencing 25/05/20, to that end the ability to order on the website has been disabled. I will obviously process and ship any orders received up to this time as usual, and will notify you all when ordering has been enabled again.

Reasons are many but the need to address loose ends, inventory stock, and generally access the business situation requires me to free up the time necessary to pursue these tasks.

I would like to thank you all for yet another bumper month for orders it is greatly appreciated, stock levels have been hit hard with many items sold out. Re-stocks are still understandable slow but items are trickling in all the time, I will keep you all notified on this, hopefully with many businesses seeing staff returning to work now we will see the supply situation improving.

There will be several new releases lined up for next month including 3mm aircraft, the new Eloi grav-tanks and the long awaited Airborne troops.

Stay safe people regards John

General Stock Situation Report

The stock situation is currently in flux, due to the large number of orders received over the last two months demand has outstripped supply. Covid 19 has caused huge delays on both manufacture and resupply and I don’t see that changing any time soon. I do have items trickling in all the time but overall re-stock supply is slow so please be aware of that.

I do have on order around 60 moulds to be run to bring the stock levels back to some semblance of normality but I have no idea when any of these will start arriving so its a waiting game I’m afraid.

Expected in this coming week will be another batch of the very popular Affray set B and a few other Elites sets will be back up amongst others. I also have in now several new release items that will start making an appearance in the coming weeks.

Plastic strips bases are also here and will be back up in store as soon as I can find time to count and bag some.

Finally I’d like to announce a shutdown period that will most likely be at the end of this month nominally for a week. This will mean I will not be accepting or processing new orders during that time. Reasons are many but I need to step back and take a break from processing orders in order to tidy up loose ends, take stock of the business situation and inventory remaining stock amongst other things.

Kind regards John

ORDERING

Ordering has now been enabled again, thank you all for your patience and understanding. I may be required to switch off ordering from time to time in the future but I will always notify you all here and on social media when that is the case.
