NEWS IN DETAIL (By Topic Number)

0) Insert date.......permanent

Please please please....ALWAYS include your shipping address with ALL pricing/shipping/ordering enquiries. By not giving your address you are wasting your time & ours. Without a shipping address we cannot work out whether you are entitled to ex-vat prices (i.e outside of the EU)... without a shipping address we cannot work out the inland or airmail costs to complete the quote. Please help us to help you.

Due to increasing problems with GLS failing to deliver. All European country customers are required to supply a contact telephone number to be added to the delivery address label. Failure to do so may result in your package being returned to the UK as undeliverable. It may then be destroyed by Royal Mail rather than returned to KFS (as has recently happened)

At about this time of year we start looking at the release/re-release programme for the forthcoming year. Bearing in mind the residual uncertainty still surrounding Brexit, with possible new complicated export procedures, plans to de-register KFS for VAT, & picking a retirement date......the following are planned for 2020, BUT, these releases (with the exception of the first item) will quite possibly be the LAST 50 kit production runs.

NEW. TQ-229 Mk2 Bloodhound surface to air missile & launcher

TQ-97 Bedford MK 4 ton GS 4x4

TQ-228 Series 2A Land Rover Ambulance

TQ-202 Mk1 AEC Militant 6x6 Gun Tractor

11) Insert date 29/10/19

One of the unexpected effects of BREXIT on the business (KFS) are new export procedures being brought into force by UK customs (HMRC). At the time of writing this may or may not affect how I export KFS parts to ANY & ALL destinations outside of the UK (not just EU countries). It may also be a case of whether I export any items AT ALL after 31 January 2020. (Date correct at time of writing but depending on any exit deal with the EU)

As a one man business & with retirement in sight in the next 1-5 years it was always the case that I would eventually wind the business down. But with the new customs import/export complications being introduced by HMRC this event may well come a LOT sooner than anticipated.

All that said, certain lines, items & kits are already being phased out. Please watch the website listings for notices of discontinued items. (TQ & Photo-Etch especially)

At present, like everyone else, I am in a state of limbo over Brexit & its exact implications, with an uncertain future for the business.
