New Website Update
Progress has taken longer than anticipated, but should be launched in June. You do not need to change your browsers as it will use the same URL. (I think that's what they call it!) Once up and running, I would appreciate any constructive comments you may have. The existing site has been very easy to use and has served me well, but changes had to be made, so the obvious answer was a complete change. I hope you like it when it arrives

Resin Building Kits
Following the death of my caster's wife and his decision to scale back his contract work, we are now moving production to a new site and a new caster. We have just had the first kits starting to come through in the last couple of weeks, but it will take a few more weeks to catch up. Some long-outstanding orders are starting to be fulfilled at last.
