Addition of WEM kits to Atlantic Models


Recommended Posts

The big news for the week from Atlantic Models is that I have ben in discussion with Richard Harden at Tom's Modelworks and we have agreed to transfer all of the former WEM kits in 1/350 and 1/700 scales to Atlantic Models for release in a new White Ensign range, under the Atlantic Models umbrella. This will also include the Narrow Seas range of kits and the 1/72 and 1/144 scale accessories for the submarines and Coastal Craft. It will be a lot easier to get the kits produced and made available now as the time limits caused by shipping things to and from the USA will not be an issue.

Things have started off with the arrival of the samples for the HMS Scorpion and HMS Vigilant kits in 1/350 which will hopefully be ready for release by August.

All the best

This is excellent news Peter. Good luck with this venture which I am sure will be very popular amongst our naval modelling community.

I asked Richard the same thing Chris over on another forum this morning.

You need to get those back over here too Peter!

The problem with the smaller accessories is that the patterns are scattered far and wide, so it would take a lot of chasing round to get any stock back together. Add to that, I went down the Shapeways lists and found that a large amount of the items are now being 3D printed to order, which will make casting large quantities for stock a non starter from my point of view anyway.
