Hi All,

Think I have emailed or PM'ed everyone on the list apart from a couple who I can't find original messages from so not sure why I put them on there :-)

If you want to be included in the run of the cupola set and I have not contacted you then please send me an email and I'll get back to you.

This completes the range of Chieftain parts we are doing and all are now available to order as normal by emailing us. The only set that requires a deposit is this Cupola MG set.

Best regards

Hi All,

Thank you all for the deposits and quick responses. It is this level of support that allows us to continue with limited sets where we know it has a market strictly limited to the number of base kits manufactured and sold. Pack of 32mm Copper Tag blanks arrived yesterday which are perfect for the Searchlight lense masters. Saved me no end of time trying to cut multiple circles. As the lenses are much thinner than the Commanders Sight I can't mix a small enough amount of resin to consider casting them singly.

Best regards

Dave

Hi All,

This run is now fully confirmed by deposit. Set will still be available after we have completed this run but this is going to be a few weeks yet. Another good day casting today and we are well over halfway through the metal parts. Parts in the wooden crate are at the full quantity required. Moulds were poured yesterday for the searchlight lenses along with another Searchlight body and sight so we can at least cast them in pairs. We are also well under way with the additional parts orders accompanying some of the Cupola sets.

Best regards

Dave

Hi Dave

Are you at Tiger day this Friday at all?

Hi All,

A few pics from the instruction build. Hope to finalise these today/tomorrow and add to the sets then ready to start requesting balances and shipping. All the ancillary orders requested are ready to go with these too.

Best regards

Dave

Looks really good Dave, thanks for going to the trouble. Chieftain wouldn’t look right without this add-on.

Hi All,

Best regards

Hi All,

I'm pretty sure I have now PM'ed or emailed everyone on my deposit list so if you have paid a deposit but not heard from me then drop me a line. If you think you have paid a deposit but aren't on my list you probably haven't and there are currently no sets left from this batch other than yours Phil so don't panic :-)

Best regards
