Kit 70 will be another former Parkwoods reissue, for the BR standard van twin pack, which offers a plywood and planked van, as well as the option to build the former as a meat van or insulated meat van.
On order and expected soon will be sprues to make the fomer TPM POA (Kit 68) and Limpet (Kit 69). The instructions still need to be finalised so these will be a few weeks yet.
As well as these “new” kits, work continues on Kit 58 for the modern warflat. This is very close to being signed off at the tooling stage after a lengthy development period.
Some of the reintroductions have been slower than anticipated after a period of intense restocking of existing kits – it’s good to know that kit building is still popular in the age of so much RTR!

Kit 64 Sand Tippler-Coil J Twin Pack were ready for TINGS and are now on sale through the website.
The Gresley kits are nearly ready for packing, just waiting on delivery of deals. The SK Area Group have bagged the wheels and springs already.
The Timber Carrier is much in demand, but sadly the stock of the red main body sprues is exhausted. Rerun times vary considerably depending on who has the tooling, but it is not anticipated that this kit will be available again until next year.
The tooling for Kit 20 BR Anhydrite Hopper has been passed to a tool maker and should be back in production some time this year.
Supplies of sprues for Kit 63 Palvan – Medfit Twin Pack are exhausted so this tooling has been passed to the same tool maker and hopefully should be fully back in stock within three months.
