January 16 2021

Our planned merger with Masterpiece Models will unfortunately not now go ahead as the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted and delayed business world-wide. The collaborative projects envisioned under the merger are not supportable in the near future, so we have therefore taken the difficult decision to revert to our original project schedule.

 

I have had a positive Skype meeting with our long term established builder SMT. Normally we work on multiple projects simultaneously, but due to the current worldwide pandemic we will focus on one project at a time, with the decision made to focus first on the GWR Castle project. This is currently at an advanced stage, with tenders built and painted, and loco chassis progressing well. Once we complete the Castles we can then move on to the GWR 850, 80xxx and A3.

The GWR 850 design work is ready for progressing once the Castle is completed. As soon as I have been vaccinated I will travel to Korea to SMT as so much more can be accomplished face to face with the builder. This will be my first visit since the pandemic arrived and caused us all so much upheaval in our lives.

 

The recent GWR K14/15 coach project has delivered some stunning work, constructed again by our builder Mr Song at SMT. As with all the models by Mr Song, they are thoroughly inspected before shipping, which ensures we have no issues. We have tested the latest coaches down to 5ft radius and they perform faultlessly, so now is the chance to secure what will be the last UK coach project built in Korea to the absolute highest of standards.

 

We hope you are all coping with the current climate. Rest assured Mr Song and I will do our very best with the Castle project to give you something to look forward to.
