Hi,

I'm pushing to try and get Kit 23 of the Foden 4.5" out this week. Only another half a dozen turned jobs to do and then waiting delivery of some laser cuts we have on order so it it could be tight but is possible. Worse case scenario is it will be early next week.

Whistle Base, Water Lifter, Mudguards and brackets, Cab Floor, Parking brake parts. Too many bits too mention them all as about 2 1/2 pages on the packing list.

Just spoken to laser cutters and they will be here Friday all being well so likely to be middle of next week rather than early part unfortunately. Everything from the machining perspective will be ready by the time they arrive just to complete the fabrication assemblies, box and ship.

Hi Adam,

Sorry no news. The production folder has been issued and materials ordered but it's not been started yet as there are still 3 other models in front of it on the priority list. Kit 23 of the 4.5" Foden hopefully should be leaving today which crosses one of them off the list.

One of us will update you further as soon as we have further info.

Regards

Dean
