MOUNTFORD MODELS MISSIVE
EPISODE 4 – late APRIL 2019
This week we have received SIX new submarine models in metal which are now listed on the website and on eBay. They are:
Virginia Class of USN submarine at £7.95 (ref MM504)
Swiftsure Class of RN submarine at £4.95 (ref MM505)
HMS Dreadnought RN submarine at £5.95 (ref MM506)
Valiant Class of RN submarine at £4.95 (ref MM507)
Trafalgar Class of RN submarine at £4.95 (ref MM508)
Vanguard Class of RN submarine at £7.95 (ref MM509)
In March the first new release of the year docked. She is RFA Sir Galahad in metal as in 1986. The price is £39.95, and its catalogue number is XAS 003. Nearly sold out.
Some back-catalogue items have also arrived such as the RFA Bay Class and HMS Scott, some dry docks and various versions of the USN Ohio Class submarine. Then there were some Type 23 frigates and a small number of the improved Wave Class tankers. Three versions of the Astute and Ohio submarines are back in stock.
In production at the painting stage now are Sir David Attenborough (XAS 004) and the first of three Spirit Class Cross Channel Ferries. They are Spirit of Free Enterprise in Townsend Thoresen livery, The Pride of Bruges in P & O, and Oleander in Trans Europa Ferries. They are in metal and during the year there will be ships in all the liveries carried in their service lives. The lengthened version of the Spirit of Free Enterprise will also be made in 3 liveries.
Now going to casting are the Royal Navy River Class ships in three versions which will be individually pennanted.
The recent releases which will be remade when stocks are low are HMS Ocean, RFA Argus, HMS Centaur, three Brittany Ferries, the Condor and the Isle of Man ferries. Those that are in stock are always shown on the website. Because every model is handmade the process is not quick and quantities are always limited.
Back catalogue items on order include Fort George and Fort Victoria, HMS Victorious, USS Gerald Ford CVN 79, the three Russian submarines, Oberon Class subs and the Upholder class with gun. These are in addition to the recent releases list.
A new addition to our release programme for 2019 is the Prince of Wales Carrier.
Should you wish to advance order any item, then we can add you to the list but will not ask you for money until we know exactly when the ships will be ready and the exact price.
Yours in model ships.
