Modern Ranges 2017

Following our rationalisation of KCB and 76B we are going to reorganise all  ranges, complete vehicles and Kit Conversions.  When we do this GW will refer to vehicles and equipment up to 1918 76 and the current KC ranges to the period 1919-1945, with PW denoting Post War vehicles and equipment.

For ease of seaching we will keep the PWB together and then all the others in alphabetical order by country.  In the foreseeable future this will reflect the fact that about half our planned releases are British, so will, we hope, be the easiest for you to search.

This has only required us to change the codes for exiting modern vehicles in the KC ranges.  These will be double-entered in the catalogue for a while.

The changes will take place during 2017.

There are also more Modern Extras - PWxE range.

    

MAFVA Nationals flier 2017.  We intend to be there.

 

Modern British vehicle conversions KCPB

With the ever-increasing size of the of the KCB, Kit Conversions British, range and the launch and growth of the PWB  Post-War British range we have decided to start a new range, KCPB  and move into it all our modern British conversions,  leaving British wartime and inter-war vehicles in KCB.  This has only required us to change the codes for exiting modern vehicles in the KCB range.  These will be double-entered in the catalogue for a while. 

There are also some Modern British Extras - PWBE range

Transfers

We have bought some of the masters from the BW range which we shall either be maintaining in production or re-mastering for resin or resin/metal - hoping to have the first releases by Telford. We have also bought most of BW's excellent military transfers which we shall have on sale as soon as possible - see the transfers page for details.

Modern British vehicles

As most of BW's range is Post-War British we have decided to start a new range, calling the new range PWB and leaving British wartime and inter-war vehicles in 76B.  This has only required us to change the code for the Fox armoured car, up to now our only Post-War British vehicle.  We feel it is a worthy PWB-01!
