Compliments of the Season & Holiday Trading Hours

Recommended Posts

Red Roo Models will be closed from Friday 21 December 2012 and will re-open for business on Monday 14 January 2013.

Where did 2012 go? Despite the pundits screaming gloom and doom from the battlements modellers appear to have been well served this year with many long awaited and highly desirable goodies hitting the market place. Some have not sat on the shelves for long enough to gather dust while others have developed into shelf queens, but on the whole most of the new kits, decals and after-market accessories released this year have found their way to eager and excited modellers. We at Red Roo have had some outstanding successes this year such as the ANARE Dakota conversion, the Beaufighter Target Tug conversion and the DC-9 kits. Top seller for the year was the ANARE Dakota conversion which sold out in about two months - but don't worry because a few more are on the way. Snapping on its heels was the wonderfuly esoteric Dart-Stang kit. The really big surprise was the DC-9 kit. The success of this venture (only about 25 kits remain unsold) has prompted us to explore the possibility of putting out some more conversions of a 'civil airlines' genre. More will be revealed in 2013.

Ed and Richard have had a very productive year in 2012, helping to resolve issues with design, production and marketing and keeping the suggestions and ideas flowing. We have had a number of suggestions that came from customers which have been seriously examined and some will appear in the product range in 2013. Our sub-contracting work continues to grow and we have forged some stategic new alliances with other small businesses in Australia and overseas. For me personally 2012 has been a better year than the previous few years with slow but significant improvements in my health, so I look forward to a better year ahead.

We have been able to finally obtain an agent in the UK which has helped with our recognition and sales into that market. We urge all those in the UK interested in our stuff to visit Model Craft's website and contact David to inquire about the Red Roo range.

Outstanding support has been provided by SAMI and we look forward to developing that relationship further in 2013.

Finally, to all our wonderful new friends on Britmodller, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best for the holiday season and the New Year - may you and your families enjoy a safe and happy festive season.

Best wishes,

Gary, Ed and Richard
