Date added: 06/01/2016 New Year, new Models R Go
The start of a brand new year is an opportunity to make some resolutions and here at Models R Go we've been analysing the results of our customer surveys and having some in-depth discussions about the future.
Our five years' trading has taught us a thing or two about the hobby business and internet trading in particular.
As Mandy and I are also foster carers, the company will always remain a small business and to that end it is pointless us attempting to replicate a bricks & mortar hobby shop on-line along with all the vast range of stock that necessitates.
With this in mind, we have decided to niche-down the business in order to offer a more focussed product range concentrating on aftermarket detailing sets, paints, modelling tools and consumables. To this end we will no longer be stocking the actual model kits themselves. This will make more space for stocking the products that are essential for building and finishing models and, co-incidentally, free up space to make a difference to the lives of more foster children - a win, win!
We hope this is the right decision for us, only time will tell but in the meantime may we wish you all a Happy and Prosperous 2016.
All the best,
John & Mandy

Due to ingredient issues in the factory in Japan, production of the following colours has been halted and no stocks were sent in the most recent shipment from Japan. Once our current stock runs out these colours will not be available for a couple of months unfortunately:
- MC211 Chrome Silver

Date added: 16/04/2015 Mr Hobby availability?
Many of you may have heard that the former UK importer of Gunze Sangyo/Mr Hobby products recently closed their retail arm to concentrate on contract work.
However we are pleased to advise that Albion Alloys will be the new importer thus ensuring continuity of supply; you may have heard of their excellent range of sanding products and metal tubing. It's early days as yet as they are still awaiting their first shipment so a few items may go out of stock for a few weeks but rest assured we will be re-stocking as soon as the product becomes available.

Date added: 24/02/2015 Lead Wire and Styrene Sheet
Good news for all scratchbuilders! We now have re-stocks of PlusModel lead wire and white styrene sheets.
Lead wire is useful for superdetailing cockpits and wheel wells to represent hoses, conduits, hydraulic lines, etc. Styrene sheet is great for gap filling and fabricating parts.
See the Scratch Building section of the website (under Model Building Accessories).

Date added: 16/01/2015 Flory Models products
Regretfully we have been advised by the sales arm of Flory Models that with immediate effect they will no longer be supplying their washes and abrasives to third parties such as ourselves. This is purely a business decision on their part and we respect that.
Once our remaining stock has gone we will no longer be able to offer Flory-branded products.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Phil and Mel for all their advice and assistance over the years, particularly in our early days. We wish them all the best for the future.

If you don't have the room for Airfix's whopping great 1:24 Typhoon or don't fancy forking out silly money for Hasegawa's 1:48 Bubbletop, then here's some good news. Hasegawa's excellent 1:48 Typhoon Mk.Ib is now available under the Italeri brand. Same kit but at a price that's much kinder on the wallet!! Nice one Italeri.
