Coronavirus outbreak effects on the wider Hobby

coronavirus outbreak effects on the wider Hobby

We have already been informed by some of our China Based suppliers that the coronavirus outbreak is now having an affect on the products coming out of China.

At the moment this is only affecting our Plastic kits which are mainly produced in mainland China.


Our first major effect will be Rye Field Challenger II RM5039 this is now put back about 2 months so may not be ready until end of March so poss early May in the UK.

According to the link Factories will not start until 01 March 2020 at the earliest,


Hobby Master may be less affected as this ships out of Bangladesh then transits through Hong Kong Free port.

Companies who are exposed to China supply are felling their share price taking a knock.
