Hello readers! Lots of news and deliveries means another newsletter…grab a drink and enjoy!

We welcome feedback on the newsletter as well as items mentioned below. You can contact us, amend your details, subscribe or remove yourself from this mailing list by using the links at the bottom of the page.

We have now received new models of the Type 26s in metal:

HMS Glasgow

HMS Belfast

HMS Cardiff

HMS Birmingham

Website price £39.95 each.

Also just arrived new livery and in metal at £44.95 are the Britanny ferries:

MV Normandie  (F39)

MV Mont St Michel  (F40)

New production and newly tooled models:

USS Bob Hope £69.95

USS Independence £79.95

USS Ranger £79.95

As usual these are listed on our website and on eBay. You will always find our website prices are lower than on eBay because of the fees they charge both on the model and on the shipping. They also charge relevant sales tax or VAT on any destinations eyond the UK and a cross border charge.

In production now are two Soviet Carriers, HMS Malta and CVA01.

We are soon to collect our second new ship model for 2023 which is the 49,850tons John Lewis Class US Navy double hulled oiler/tanker.

There is a photo of the master on the website and the first completed model was on display at the Lincoln show. Photos will follow. Wow. So very exciting to see and feel the weight of this model.

As well as USS John Lewis there will also be some USS Harvey Milk, USS Earl Warren, and USS Robert F Kennedy. Ready around the 20th of September.

We regularly update the two ‘Releases’ pages on the website. There’s New Models and former Mountford Stock pages. We will continue to update them as our plans develop, ships sell out and new items are introduced.

We also have some special offers on the site under the Blue Monday heading or as 2023 Special Offers.

In May we posted a flyer on the website with details and prices of the dockyard kits.

Following your feedback on the Devonport kits, we are also going to make parts 5C and 5D to go with our new kit of Devonport Dockyard Basins 4, 5A and 5B.

These should be ready well in time for Christmas 2023. It will be only a small run so please let us know if you want to reserve yours. Half of the planned production run is now pre-sold.

Full Hull Ships.– SALE stock going quickly!

On the website we have always had a good range of Full Hull ships made mostly under the Atlas Label. They are finely detailed and there are many classic ships that look great on display rather than in a harbour. They take up a lot of room in our store, which we need for new stock, so we have decided to discontinue them and have put them all in a big sale to encourage you to buy them. Any left at the end of the year will go to local charity shops.
