Having missed my target of getting the R/C system running for the AGM show, I was left with a backlog of essential house & garden maintenance that had been put off to give me time to concentrate on thr R/C system so that became my priority for October, November and December. Unfortunately I was then hit with a bad dose of flu that took up most of November and then again over Xmas.
This has all rather screwed up my production schedule for that period.
I apologise to all my customers waiting for their LMS 3F kits. I guess it is just one of the hazards of being a one-man business.
I am now back on working to complete the R/C system, but I have decided to defer the programming for customising the initial R/C setup. It will come later after I have sent out the kits.
The enforced rest has given me time to consider my longer term production objectives.
It is now obvious that the carriage kit market has become very competitive as far as laser cut ply kits are concerned. Consequently I will only be producing kits for the carriages that I have actually done all the research and 2D drawings for – see my list in the current price list here.
From now on I will be concentrating on the locomotive developments – again see the current price list here.
The RtR LMS 3F (one only) will be ready for sale after the kits have been sent out – needs painting and filming shunting.

I am now experimenting with laser printed self-adhesive sheets for the transfers. These should be tougher and easier to apply than the previous transfers and will enable me to do the boiler cladding as well as all the other parts. Watch this space for future developments.

I now have 2 spare LMS 3F kits – available fairly soon – still at the original price.
