Kit News as at OCTOBER 2013
Many customers will be aware that I have been preaching for some years now the importance of pre-ordering the kits you are interested in. It seems to have worked well this year and as a result many of the latest kits are already sold out. Only a small surplus is produced for each kit as it is not possible to hold any stocks.
Just a reminder of how it works, Newsletter and new leaflets are produced twice a year in October and May. Pre orders are taken up to the time when the kit becomes available which can be between 6 months and 2 years due to the complexities of planning construction and production. Usually only a handful of kits remain after they have been issued and the pre-orders cleared.
At the sake of repeating myself please note it cost nothing to pre order by order form, email or phone call when I am available and is without any obligation and you may cancel at any time.
The website is becoming more informative. It will not show any more news content than is in the Newsletter and the leaflet but what it will include is some prototype research on most of the forthcoming kits such as brief histories fleet lists and operators. This information is available on the British Buses page by clicking the buttons on the left hand side. These details will also be included with the kit.

One exception to the above is BMTH 39 Leyland TD5 Weymann
At this stage postage remains unchanged at £3.50 for 1-4 kits and £7.00 5 kits and over.
With a bit of skilful packing the postal costs for wheels up to 6 sets will be £1.20 and £3.50 for 7 sets and over.
Please note that not all the production LS51 and BMTH 39 kits have been received due to the large quantity and as a result sending out advice notices will be a bit spread over the next few weeks.
