Coastal Craft Models Website


Recommended Posts

Off a model shop website (https://www.model-dockyard.com/acatalog/Coastal-Craft-Fittings.html )

 

'Heath problems with the owner of Coastal Craft mean that he has not been able to make and supply us with any of his products since early last year. This situation is unchanged and we are therefore only able to offer the items below with the quantities showing as available. Once these are sold out, there won't be any more.'  

 

Could this be the issue?

I was told this this when I was chasing an order some months ago but when I saw him later at Telford, things seemed fine and I put the order delay down as 'forgot'. I haven't chased the order since, just in case.

Hi Chaps

I've been in contact with Martin of Coastal Craft this afternoon.  He has been unwell with periods of time in hospital.  On top of that he tells me that the person who attends to his website has retired.  He seems to be on the mend but intends to scale back on the number of shows that he attends, although he expects to be at the IPMS Bolton show on 19 January.  He also tells me that he's taking steps to get the website back on line.

Thanks for the update Al and good to hear it’s all, hopefully, back on track soon.

I noticed this morning that their website is still down. There are some parts available on eBay, along with a complete Fairmile kit at present, and the books remain available from book retailers, but besides this it doesn’t look particularly promising

I spoke to Martin a couple of weeks ago. Their circumstances mean they have been in total lockdown since the pandemic began. i have no knowledge of the circumstances of the business, but I'm sure their health comes first. 

 

I hope this is of some use.

It is possibly the same as an LHS I used.  The owner does not live on the shop premises and is on lockdown.  This has meant he cannot access the shop computer or customers details and orders etc.

At least it sounds like Martin is OK, so it will just have to be a waiting game.

Just an update folks from my own recent experience. I email Martin at coastalcraftmodels@gmail.com to order the 1/48 Heritage Chipmunk (two actually). The order was placed last Saturday (21st) and the models arrived yesterday. Brilliant service!

 

I have emailed martin again to thank him and also to enquire whether other products are available at the moment, and whether he has some sort of price list/flyer of products. 

 

As you say, health must come first, so let's see what the current situation is.

BTW, the 1/48 Chipmunk is a superb kit!
