This has been a strange Year for ModelEarth, we have had an annex build in progress which has got well out of hand. Project managing this after the loss of our original builder has taken up a vast amount of time and resource. The business has suffered, with very little progress on commission work or new masters.

Mercifully this project is nearing completion, this will finally allow the relocation of the studio and workshop to be completed, and a resumption of normal service.

My apologies for all of you currently waiting on commission projects

All being well 2022 will see a full program of new releases, including figures, locos and a new rolling stock range as well as some long awaited additions to the existing ranges.

I hope all friends and customers are keeping safe, wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
