Projects

You can see a quick overview of current or previous projects on this page.  The dates are liable to change as development progresses and any unexpected problems crop up! If there is no delivery date it is because we will not publish an estimated delivery date until we are confident that it will be accurate – please note that these are best estimates and until a model physically arrives there are a whole host of possibilities for delays.

Please note the CAD will be completed before the order book is opened.
