6" Foden Lorry - Sundays meeting - good news

Post  burrell1 on Wed 07 Dec 2011, 9:27 am

As my letter about the meeting on Sunday did not arrive I telephoned Steve today and had a chat with him about what the situation was with regard to the 6” Foden Lorry project. I was very pleased to hear that the letter was not all gloom and doom. STW are still planning to go ahead with this project but Steve first wanted us all to have the opportunity to see the type of castings that they will be using for this kit, as they will be different to the ones used with the Burrell kits. He also wanted to have the chance to have a chat with us all before production started as we are, at the moment, only a relatively small group. I expect that our group will expand when the project gets under way. I have decided to attend the meeting although it will be a very long round trip for me. The main reason for this decision is that I am told that there will be nine out of the present twelve people who have placed an order for the Foden Lorry attending and this will give us a unique opportunity to meet up prior to starting building. I think that this also gives an indication of the commitment to this project by the people who have already ordered a kit. This will also allow us to get to know each other now and hopefully to be able to help each other out during the building of the lorry’s, which I am very much looking forward too. I am attending the meeting on Sunday with a very positive attitude that the project is definitely going ahead and that this meeting is just a bonus for us all, that the other builders have not had in the past. I look forward to meeting everybody who will be attending STW on Sunday. For those of you who are unable to attend I will try and post something on the forum to give you details of what was discussed. I will also be asking that we have our own page on the forum.

Good news indeed - as long as corners are not going to be cut and quality compromised.

Hi Guys,

The meeting on Sunday is as much about your opinions as it is ours.

There are many options available from starting production immediately, to delaying it or even canceling it altogether through to using loose patterns, box patterns, fabrications or our preference lost wax aluminum patterns (as with the DCC engines). These are the sorts of things we want to discuss.

We've worked hard to achieve a reputation of providing a quality product, and the one thing we do not want to compromise is that.

I'll look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

Dean
