Another new kit to join the range this month:
7201 Gresley Steel Sided Full Brake diagram198. These were built 1936/7 and lasted into the rail blue period

This was withdrawn some time ago when I damaged the mould for the axleboxes. I found the mould recently and saw that a repair was possible. I did this and managed to re release it in time for the Kettering Show.

GWR Non corridor coaches now withdrawn as stock of mouldings has run out and the RTR versions from Dapol means that it is not worthwhile running off fresh stock. I now have a Corridor Full Brake and hope to replace these with Corridor types from the same period

My first new model for some time is the GWR Diagram K38 Full Brake.  I got a few early production examples to Kettering for release and full production should be available by the end of March.  The usual "Basic" Kit, no wheels couplings, buffers etc. costs £48.00

No Price Rises for 2022
But have introduced a modest postal charge for any size of order. This eliminates confusion on the supply of small orders of a few mouldings where the cost of posting outweighed the cost but was sometimes expected to be post free.  So £3.50 postage please whether it is an order for a few mouldings or any number of coach packs.
Dapol RTR do the same GWR coaches as my kits which are now very slow sellers. I intend  not to re run the moulds for these  and withdraw them when the existing stock of mouldings run out. No point in tying up machine time and increasingly expensive plastic material to produce mouldings which might never sell. I can re use some of the tooling in my projected GWR Full Brake.
