Hi folks, apologies if you have not heard from me via email etc recently. A plan had been put in place to aid in the catch up from my ill health, and to take in the school holidays. What had not been factored in, was the sudden passing of a family member. I will be getting back to it properly over the next few days or so, but there will be times when not as you would expect.
So folks, please take more time to enjoy your life, be with family and friends and relax with your hobby et al. It can go in a moment.
A copy of the update on Social Media. Hopefully next week will be back to normal!

Announcement for AlleyCat Models 18th July 2017.
A quick status update for everyone, as there have been a couple of weeks of restricted contact and productivity. This has been down to a couple of things, and although some negative, a major one has been most positive!!
So, negative first, the knees decided I had been pushing them a little hard and so 'failed' several times in quick succession, and strained the achilles tendon in so doing, so causing a week or so out resting.
Some casting had been delayed due very sadly to a bereavement, I am sure you join me in passing condolences.
Now for the positive, at short notice a local builder was able to do some planned work to give me a decent stock and packing room! Planned for later in the year, but a cancellation allowed it be done much sooner. This will allow me much more flexibility on order processing, as I can do it in the hours of the day when mobile, and still rest the knees.
 MDC are currently casting the 1/24th Mosquito NF sets, and decals are being drawn as an option for the mask/decal mix.  Also being worked on is the 1/32 Boomerang complete kit, and a clear resin wind screen for the Fury kit pending the 'Spatted' Fury release.

Please when contacting me try to directly email me with a specific title relating to your contact, this will help prevent it getting shoved into the wrong thread due to too similar a title (such as replying to the 'order confirmation' email). We are trying to fix this this end as well!.
Going forward UK model shows will not be attended as much by me as a trader, as they take too much time out both preparation and recovery wise, thanks to the knee deterioration and this hits the mail order side causing delays. See below for a list of those I still plan to do this year, some for the last time.
Now for better things: This weekend I will have the first castings of the following new items: 1/72 P51 metal tanks, Valiant bomb panniers (both open and closed), Valiant 'Eager Beaver' tail and in 1/48 the grey resin parts of the new Meteor Mk4 (clear still en route).
Hopefully in the near future there will be a reissue of a 1/32 kit and a new release, these are the CAC Boomerang and Hawker Fury MkII (AKA Spatted Fury) complete with new decals.

Happy modelling, Alec
