Announcement for AlleyCat Models 16th November 2018.
There was a movie a while back that had the famous line that was something like 'Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get' and this is now so very true. My relative has thanks to the efforts of the local hospital and doctors services been rushed through plenty of useful and helpful appointments, some at very short notice. We are now reaching a point where they are all ending, as little more can be done that way.
We also have a proper diagnosis of Alzheimer's and Vascular Dementia, this full diagnosis helps in that it confirms medically what is happening and opens doors/routes to extra assistance. Thus meaning less travelling for me, and more time to get back to normal.
All of the increased running around and the weather change to autumn has caused the arthritis in the knees to flare (not unexpected, but definitely unwanted!), so a touch of rest was needed, including no Telford 2018.
So without over-stressing the knees initially things will normal(ish) again thankfully. Instructions for the new sets are almost all finished allowing dispatch various
overdue clear sets are being cast  (Must be that time of year!) so hopefully here soon, including 1/72 Blenheim Windows, 1/32 AR196 and 1/48 Vampire canopies.
There have also been some notable delays in my updates and contact replies, guilty as charged, but sorry, I have not felt up to it at times, and replying to queries after spending half an hour or so debating with someone who's memory and mind is failing would mean that any pent up frustration could have come out via that reply.
There will be some more good news in the near future!
On a related note, If you unfortunately have experience of this situation, and feel willing to share tips, please do they will be most welcome, and of course if sadly you are in the same boat and think I can offer even a small bit of advice please ask away.

AlleyCat will be having a few trade stands in 2019 including the IPMS Brampton St.Ives (Cambs) Model Show on Sunday September 29th 2019.
I will also be coordinating Make and Paint events at the Shuttleworth Collection air-shows where prepaid orders can also be handed over by prior arrangement if it is agreed for 2019.

All the best, and happy modelling Alec.
