My etching supplier closed their factory late March but has now reopened with greatly reduced capacity. I picked up my first work for two months (wagon kits only) on 19/5/20. So I should slowly be able to produce replacements for “Sold Out Kits”.
I produce all white metal castings in house so no problems with bogies etc
or restocking once etchings become available.
