Update time! 27/03/2020.
Currently I am still processes orders with the advised care approach of hand washing, keeping distance etc, helped by the fact that there is just me working. The local Post Office have advised they are remaining open for now, and Royal Mail have advised the network is open for all (with sensible practises)
. Castings are still coming through, but slower as expected. HOWEVER certain mould silicon isn't available, so some castings will be delayed several weeks, more when we know it.

Currently HM Govt advice that is applicable to me at AlleyCat is:

With the exception of some non-essential shops and public venues, we are not asking any other businesses to close – indeed it is important for business to carry on.
However, you should encourage your employees to work from home unless it is impossible for them to do so.
Sometimes this will not be possible, as not everyone can work from home. Certain jobs require people to travel to their place of work – for instance if they operate machinery, work in construction or manufacturing, or are delivering front line services.

There are also some new items ready to go and more will follow, such as the 1/32 Henschel HS123 and Hawker Fury Mk2 (Spatted) kits now in stock and available. More new sets will appear over the next few weeks, they will go live in stages.

Unfortunately due to the current virus situation nigh on all model shows up to May have been cancelled, so I shall aim to look to social media more than I have in the past, especially as things were being aimed for launch at them. As things stand things are fine for now for dispatching and posting, HOWEVER, there may well be restrictions placed on international items at short notice and possible delays when things are on route, so do keep an eye on your local updates.

Stay safe and well!

Happy modelling,
