The first part of the maintenance work on our site is complete and it should now be possible for our non-European friends to place orders correctly and have VAT removed. The ordering process automatically removes VAT when you confirm your shipping destination.
For any customer if you notice any problem with the amount (particularly tax) that you are being charged please let us know ASAP.
We have to take the website offline to perform some essential maintenance and to add a bit of functionality. As a result the site will be unavailable from 8pm on 28 July 2016. If the upgrades go smoothly then the site may be unavailable for only a very short period, but we won’t know that until we take the site offline!
If it is not possible to complete all the work this evening then the site will be taken offline on Sunday evening (31 July 2016).
So that we don’t impact anyone hoping to place an order at our early bird prices for the KFA container flat, class 320/321 or 4mm/OO TEA tank wagon we will extend the early bird deadline by a week to 7 August 2016.
We are delighted to announce that C&M Models of Carlisle and Colletts Models of Exmouth will be stocking our forthcoming N gauge TEA tank wagons.
C&M and Colletts will be the only retailers in the country where you will be able to purchase our tank wagons after they arrive.
We are aware that the all-or-nothing approach of crowd-funding does not suit everyone; some people will have missed the deadline; others may not have been able to afford a complete rake in one go.
We feel the forward-thinking approach of these retailers will help to compensate.
Mike Parsons of C&M Models said: “As a trader, I know not all my customers are necessarily aware of these models, so I wanted to be able to give those who missed out a second chance, as well as offering existing customers the chance to add to their fleet over a longer period.”
Leigh Collett of Colletts Models said: “We are delighted to have this opportunity to stock Revolution Trains’ tankers – these models are exactly what our customers want”.
The recommended retail price is £30 (£31 for the EWS livery) – this is higher than the price paid by our customers who ordered in advance but still represents very good value for money.
We are very grateful to C&M Models and Colletts Models for the faith that they have shown in us and for helping to reach our production run targets
