Update 14th March……What a successful first 3 months of 2019
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT EWM IS CLOSING FOR A SHORT TIME FROM 22nd MARCH TO 8th APRIL. We re taking some time out, short holidays over this period. The workshop will be manned, but we wont be responding to orders until our return. So, any orders placed after 15th March, are UNLIKELY to be looked at until the 10th April.
First then, a big thank you to all our lovely customers, for your business and for some, your patience as we got around to sending out your orders some what later than is the norm.
Shows at YORK, Bournemouth Beach head, Tonbridge Cavalier and Hammerhead all saw us doing better than last year, measured both in terms of turn over, GINGER NUTZ eaten and numbers of new customers meet.
The shows and servicing them, was also the main reason for the longer delay than usual in turning orders around. Shows remain an important way for EWM to show case its new and existing products to both new and old customers. I also enjoy doing them very much.
Now, if you think about it, we really are enjoying a GOLDERN TIME in our hobby right now. There is more choice, quality of products is better than ever before, there are many new small business’s coming to both show and trade their designs. From a customers perspective, and I’m am one too, I cant remember a better time for our hobby.
Look whats new and coming from EWM…….Tom Lobley has been a busy fellow and celebrated his 80th Birthday recently…HUZZAR! We are also fortunate in that 2 of my good Dutch Friends and model manufacturers have been slowly allowing me to make a “war gaming” version of the models they own. Wargaming version as opposed to a resin model with multiple pieces. As we know, gamers tend to “handle” their models a lot more than fine scale modelers. This opens up a wide selection of unusual models to us gamers. I pay them in GINGER NUTZ…!
Polish Motorcycles, combinations and dismounted crews are coming. Polish Carts, both infantry MG and mortar carts. Polish cavalry horse drawn anti-tank weapons, teams and limbers. Polish fiat 508 field cars and pick up trucks. Polish mobile SP anti -aircraft guns and crews. Lots of Polish things……..
Norwegian Artillery via a special commission from Mr Mike Conroy, Kronsberg 120mm and M27 mountain guns.
New to EWM, former Sgt Majors Late War German Paratroopers…lovely
Crossley Armoured Car, Fiat open top car for military use, Interwar British and Japan WW2.
Italian Armoured Cars and more SPA trucks mounting field guns, new Auto Carrettta flat bed truck.
Dutch 6 Veld field gun and Dutch version modified Model T tractor unit/caisson for the gun.
Becker German conversion of the French P107 armored personnel carrier, mortar unit, ambulance and Pak carrier versions. I working on the hull, with its unusual shape, being a single piece casting …we shall see?
I also have a desire to list and load all the commonwealth early war infantry types that are made, but not fully photographed and listed on the site.
So, hopefully that will wet the appetite, so watch out for updates
Remember, its our job to tempt you………..and make you smile?
