Warehouse staff are on rotation so Me (Gary Ford) Managing Director and one warehouse person man the joint, for safety and security. We are keeping our little heads above water and still paying all our staff normal wages but most are working from Home or working 2 or 3 days a week. Going to hurt no doubt, but better safe than sorry, but we have been doing this for three weeks and staff briefed on the virus for a lot longer. Our first member of staff is in isolation (Greg Wilson) some may know him form shows and Cold War Sig, but he his feeling much better and hopefully back sometime next week. So we are still doing a little on line retail and sending trade orders our to customers who have let us know they are still working (Mainly on line folks) Stay Safe and Sound

  10. PLATZ MODELS COMING BACK TO TIGER HOBBIES Tiger Hobbies have looked again at Platz Models for import starting again poss May 2020. This will be restricted to their 1/144 and 1/72 Aircraft kits, no F-Toys or Pre-painted kits will be imported (These are a waste of time in the UK as far as sales go and we are happy to leave it to the smaller importers) We will look at some of the 1/700 maritime and Girl in a Panzer Models. To make this work and keep the price to a reasonable level this range will have to fit into our current Logistic system from Japan. At the moment we import every Quarter via surface shipment with our Zoukie Mura load. There will be no more air shipment and the release date in Japan could be another 3 months for the UK, but at least you will have access to this range via our retailer network.
  11. From Tiger Hobbies From a Business point of view possible a wise move on part of the club, as if this was paid and pulled it could finish them off, as it may be difficult to get their money back. This is from the Club Good Morning, We are very sorry to have to inform you that we have decided to cancel the Shropshire Model Show, due to be held at the RAF Museum, Cosford on the 5th April. We feel that the growing seriousness of the Covid outbreak is making a situation where the government will be forced to close down large public gatherings more lightly by the day. We have therefore decided that cancelling now, prior to us making large payments, will enable us to keep the club in a financial position that will allow us to continue in existence. In addition, by doing this, we will be able to refund the payments that have been made by traders.
  12. This is official as a trader standing at RAF Cosford Model Show we have been informed, the show is cancelled
