Bad news we're sorry to say. We have just been informed by our casters of some major (in fact shocking) price increases in the costs of resin casting coming into effect from January 1st 2019. This means that some of the following will probably not be going ahead after all. In fact they may never be released again. We can only play these by ear as the price changes take effect, but we will keep you up to date as far as possible. As an example... the casting price of the TQ33 Hook Loader has gone up by a shocking 60% !!!

The major kit & transkit re-release programme is now being scheduled for 2019. 9 kits have been identified for re-release, no production costings are yet available so these will be added to the TQ product listings as soon as they are confirmed.

The re-releases are (although not in this order) FV601 Alvis Saladin Armoured Car.... TQ-223 Bedford RL 4 Tonner....TQ-63 Scania Longline....TQ-29 Michigan L-190 Shovel Loader... TQ-50 78/04 Low Loader Trailer..... TQ-37 Seddon Atkinson 401... TQ-1 Iveco Eurotech-SA Strato...... TQ-73 Ford Transcontinental..... TQ33 Hook Loader
