Important Announcement - 2401D Locomotives
After much discussion within the Shared Wuiske Models and Haskell Asylums, we have been forced into making a decision we had not wished to make regarding the Bicentennial 2401D model.
We presently supply over 20 shops in Australia and overseas. With such a limited run of a model we have had two retailers trying to effectively call “dibs” on a vast proportion of the run. One was very adamant about how many they “HAD to have” and how we “owed it to them”.
As such, we have decided that to work in the best interest of you the modeller and to avoid as many people as possible missing out on this limited production model (or to avoid the possibility of paying stupid prices on eBay in 6 months time) we have made the decision that ALL models of 2401D in the Bicentennial livery will be made available direct through Wuiske Models ONLY.
We apologise for any inconvenience this causes as it was not our preferred option. However we have spent well over a decade producing models for modellers (like myself for instance) and we refuse point blank to be told how many models “we have” to set aside for any retailer.
If any retailers have an issue with this policy then they are welcome to discontinue stocking our products as one shop has already threatened to (Wuiskes don’t work well with threats). This action has been taken as a direct result of the actions of two retailers (one in particular) and we will not bow to any pseudo pressure being applied on this front.
Whilst we usually go out of our way to support and promote the local hobby shops, there are limits to what we will put up with.
Having said that, if you have ordered one of these models through your local hobby shop, please PHONE US ASAP (07 4668 5976 anytime) to let us know and we will happily honour your standing arrangement and send it to them for you to purchase.
