But note the option to buy directly from the distributor.
Another of the, slowly but steadily accumulating, indications that traditional retail outlets are becoming of less and less importance to the manufacturers and distributors.
Reminder! High Street vs Online
Sure they are. Then why don't they show us a pic of the real model! Why hide it with flames? where is the guide? Two weeks means Novemeber. I thought it was coming in October? NO,wait it was September. Oh, my mistake it was April! Show me a pic of the real model in its case and I WILL BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You ever been down to their set up near Ford? Big shop. Heavy on the railway, stuff and I assume they import/distribute that too. I've never been and seen the place empty, and it is isolated, I mean there are no other shops about for miles.
Don't grieve for them, I reckon they do okay.
If ever you do find yourself down there, take a look see at Ford Park Raceway down the road... very large wooden track. Sweet.

It's gone, I'm afraid, Wankel. Dennis moved from there several years ago to a fantastic 6 lane 210ft board track in the middle of Bognor. But even that succumbed to the will of the landlords eventually and he now does mobile events. I would say, like Goodwood, which he supported right from the start, but apparently the sponsoring might of Hornby led him to be brushed aside.
For those that are interested this is why one of the alternate Thursday nights at Liphook is called "Bognor night".
