Kits

 

Kits, this is perhaps the most frequently asked question at the moment. Before we bought the business the stock of complete kits was run down to zero and not restocked. There are various kit components in stock that with a little additional manufacture will yield a few kits. Details of these will follow in due course; this is the plan for the short term.

Once we are familiar and confident with the running of the core areas of the business we will begin kit production in earnest. However, we will not restock the entire range. Instead we intend to produce kits in batches when we have established there is sufficient demand. This is likely to be in a batch of 15 to 20, anyone with a particular interest in a kit is welcome to register that with us and go on the list. When we have sufficient orders to commit to manufacture we will more than likely seek a deposit.

We've yet to decide on pricing, there will be an increase over the last kit catalogue as Alan himself had an increase across the rest of the range (which wasn't applied to the kits) before we bought the business.

We have a form that you can download, fill in and return to us to register an interest in particular kits, or just refer to for the kits that will be available. Please click here for the list.

We will be producing kits in the next few weeks, please see below for details. As a guide when we get to six or seven notes of interest n a kit we will begin to look in to a production run. The 1st stage of this is to determine how many will be in the batch and thi is generaly done by examining the photo tooling to see how many units are on an etch. For instance if there are 4 chassis on one etch and 3 bodies on another we will produce 12 kits. It is likely that we will produce the kit when we have a subscription of 75%.

Due to people dropping out of the subscription as the we near completion of a batch we do have some kits available on the shelf for immediate purchase. For details of available kits please click here: Available kits.

With regard to the 7mm kits we're thinking along the lines of producing them in batches of as close to 6 as we can, although this does depend on how many bodies / etches there are on an etch.
