Copplestone Castings have added a set of 1:48 scale Modern Russian vehicles to their online store.
From their announcement:
I’ve just bought in a few very nice, good value 1/48th scale vehicles made by Richard Kemp (who makes all my armoured cars and tanks), but normally sold by HLBS. There are 9 different modern Russian vehicles that I think fit nicely into near-future wargames. Scroll down to the bottom of the Future Wars page to have a look.
Depending on how these go I might buy in more and/or commission Richard to make some original SF models.
Delayed Deliveries to the USA
Some orders sent to the USA in early to mid-December have been delayed and have only just started arriving. This was completely out of our control and seems to have been the result of new US security measures taken after bombs were found in a cargo plane at a UK airport – although bad weather here and in the USA before Christmas made it worse.
A couple of days ago I spoke to someone in the international section of our Royal Mail who told me that packets (but not letters) were being held by US customs for up to 25 days before getting security clearance. This seems to be a continuing situation so it looks like our US customers may have to wait up to 5 weeks for delivery. Thanks for your patience.
