Looking at the kit number I would say Agricultural, Kit 23 is crank items which wont be much use for either the DCC or SCC as they are both at the start.

Only a guestimate but having looked at the kit and the stock we hold towards it, I would say perhaps as soon as a week or as long as 3 weeks

Excellent pictures Craig, thank you!!

Bet that's hard work getting those 6" Foden boilers on to the CNC machines!! In fact hard work doing anything with them!!

I guess there'll be a few more engine cranes being bought up by customers building these latest engines!!!

Tony

Hi Ian,

Many thanks for the updates, was wondering how the replacement spokes for Burrell Showmans 4 DCC Kit 5. I received a letter from Isabel explaining the problem, and that new spokes had been ordered from the laser cutters, and that you were looking at despatching the new ones week commencing 12th May. so far have not heard anymore.
Judging by the latest production pictures are we likely to receive kit 3 this month?.

Best Regards

Steve Honey.

The spokes are here and have already been drilled and countersunk, the next step is to make time in the manual area to get them bent and test assembled, and we are currently working towards kit 3 this month/next month

Don't think we would forget you especially with a kit who's packing list is 3 pages long.
Best guess is around Tuesday next week for dispatch.
