Hi Ben and all,
We've had to adjust the spoked wheel mold (new tooling) and bogie mold (minor change) to fix the running capabilities of the cars.
This has added around $5,000 to the cost of tooling for the cars.
We're currently working out the revised price for these cars while being mindful that they come in a 8 car set.
We should have a new price devised in the next days and we'll let you know when the order forms will be available.
We're currently checking the painted samples to let the factory know what changes are required for the production run.
We'd actually hoped to have them here by the Queens Birthday Exhibition but at this stage the dispatch date from the factory has slipped probably until late August / early September this year.
I hope this helps,
We've added photos of the Indian Red & Venetian Red cars to our Facebook page and will update the Flickr and Blog later this evening.
