Whilst stocks last, we shall be including 3 of these in every mail order and internet delivery that we make. It will happen automatically, so there is no need to ask. If you don't get some, then we have run out. Sorry.

Change to our web site

We recently made a change to the web site so that you could go straight to the New Arrivals page, using a link in the Blog, and start building a basket from there.This has worked so well that we have now extended to web site to enable you to do the same for linking through to an individual item.

To show how this works, try the following:

This will click you straight through to this item on the web site and create a basket for you.

Please let me know what you think, along with any other comments about the current web site. As we write the softweare for the website, we can normally accommodate additional features fairly easily.

News for 6th March 2010

First off, we now have a Twitter account. We are trying to put anything new on there first - SBX Twitter.

Secondly, we have a section on IPMS Locate and Cement.

The two best sellers this week were the new Eduard Fw190 D-9 in 1/48th - EDK8184 - at £24.99, and the Airfix Buccaneer AX04049 - £10.99.

We have a great little deal on pipettes, if you use these for measuring paint and thinners. The price, whilst stocks last, is 30p per pipette, which is very cheap against the Revell pack of 6 for £3.18. The code for these is SBXPIP. There is no limit on quantity so buy what you need.

The interesting releases of the week are three Eduard Kits

EDK8131 1/48th Fokker D V.III O.A.W. £24.99
Eduard Weekend EDK8412 1:48 - Hanriot HD.1 £11.75
Eduard EDK8146 1:48 - I-16 Type 17 £17.50

We are still expecting the Modelmaster range of Enamels but probably not for a few weeks.
