In a rush of blood to the head we have 3 remakes in the pipeline. Our best selling British tank the Cromwell has had a makeover and now sports a remade turret with opening hatchs. The T34/85 has had the same and a new gun and Sherman M4 Easy 8 a new turret , hull mods and opening hatchs to place your 1/144th Brad Pitt tank commander figure. At long last the Sd Kfz 251 B is complete and is off to the casters. ( Specially for Mr A Lough )
We have just heard that Stewart Griffin of Griffin Moulds has passed away. As Stewart's casting shop was our main supplier of vehicles it means that there will be some unavoidable delays in getting resupplied with stock. Will keep you posted. We all send our sincere condolences to Stewarts partner Jane.
Merry Xmas to all . Thanks for all your custom in 2014 and hopefully 2015 will bring lots of new models. Grandfleet Miniatures will be releasing 2 new battleships and flotillas of smaller craft. Arrowhead will be bringing out more Allied softskins along with a small range of RAF tanker vehicles. We should see the release of the much delayed Sd Kfz 251 B.
On a different note, the range has been counterfeited by another non UK company and the models copied in a resin compound. If you come across them please let me know ( they have been featuring on an online auction site ) and I can hopefully take steps against these jokers. To their credit E-Bay UK have barred the seller. The funny thing is that they are not even much cheaper than the originals.
