  1. Hello all,

    Over the next few weeks, I will be receiving the latest model from Silas - it's the 1964 Triumph Herald 1200 estate car. Colours available are: Jonquil yellow, Signal red, and Wedgwood blue.

     

    This is a hand built, limited edition model of 100 in each colour. Anybody wishing to pre-order a model can phone me on: 01244 320761 or email me at: bhm-uk@talktalk.net

     

    Click on the Silas Models category to see photos.

     

    Regards,

    Frank.

     

     

  2. Hello all,

    the first run of 30 models of MC07, the 1968 Cortina Mk11 1600E, Series 1, sold out on pre-orders, before the model arrived and I had a chance to list it on the website.

    That initial run, featuring bullet-style wing mirrors, has now been superseded by the second run, arrival of which is imminent.

    The second run will differ from the first run, thus:

     

    No wing mirrors.

    Addition of an RAC badge to front grille.

    Addition of chrome "GB" plate to bootlid.

    Twin red rear foglights replaced by twin white rear reversing lights.

     

    The previous Velvet Blue model has now been superseded with a new colourway: Alpina Green with a saddle interior.

    The Dragoon Red model now features a black interior, which replaces the previous grey one.

     

    Arrival of the second run of models is imminent, but because of the painstaking process of handbuilding these exquisitely detailed models, only 24 will arrive:

     

    12 x Saluki Bronze

    6 x Alpina Green

    6 x Dragoon Red.

     

    As of today's date, pre-orders for 11 models have already been received, so if you wish to purchase one, contact me on T: 01244 320761 to place an order as soon as possible.

    Go to the "Majesty Classics" category on the site, to see photos of the new 1600E models.

     

    Regards,

    Frank.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  3. Hello all,

    due in shortly is the New Minimarque, by Illustra, Austin Atlantic Woody estate car. Colours will be - red, gold, black, or green.

     

    There are very few ordered, so if you must have one, phone me directly on 01244 320761, to pre-order one.

     

    These sold out last times, as the model is produced in very small quantities and hard to come by.

     

    They are hand built in white metal, by Mike Murray and his team at Illustra Models, the owner of the original Minimarque 43 master model.

     

    Photos of the models can currently be viewed in the New Minimarque category.

     

    Regards,

    Frank.

     

     

     

  4. Hello all,

    to check out the latest photos and details of the 1966 Singer Vogue estate cars, go to the Majesty Classics section in the BHM category.

    The arrival of the model is imminent, and what a stunning model it is! Beautifully hand built, it comes in a choice of two colours: steel grey or metallic pale blue, both with a contrasting red interior.

     

    The model will be here within the next 7-10 days, but if you wish to pre-order one (there will be only SIX of each colour, initially), phone me directly on: 01244 320761, as soon as possible, and I'll put one to one side for you.

     

    PLEASE NOTE: three have already been pre-ordered, so that leaves only nine left, at present.

     

    Best regards,

    Frank.

  5. Hello all,

    the Sunbeam Rapier Fastback is scheduled to be produced over the coming few months. Colours will be metallic turquoise blue, and metallic burnt copper/orange, with possibly another colour.

     

    Initial production will be slow and limited, because of the precise, hand built nature of these exquisitely made models.

     

    Price is subject to confirmation, but will be around £90 each + p&p.

     

    If you definitely want to buy one - phone me on: 01244 320761 and pre-order. The Majesty Classics range is selling so quickly that it is difficult for the factory to keep up with demand, so to avoid disappointment - pre-order.

     

    The model will be advertised in Model Collector and Diecast Collector and these adverts always bring in enough pre-orders, alone, for the initial production run to sell out.

     

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your consistent support. It is very heartening.

     

    Regards,

    Frank.

  6. Hello all,

     

    the next model in the Majesty Classics range will be the 1966 Singer Vogue estate.

     

    Pre-orders can be placed now by phoning me on: 01244 320761.

     

    The model will be in metallic steel grey, with a red interior. Exquisite detailing, as usual, and superb quality and finish.

     

    Price is £88.95 + p&p.

     

    PLEASE don't wait for the model to come into stock, because the last two models, Singer Vogue saloon & Cortina 1600E have sold out on pre-orders.

     

    Regards,

    Frank.

  7. Hello all,

    here's another apology...

    owing to the demand for the 1600E, I haven't been able to list it on the site. I ordered 36 from the manufacturer in China, but because of the Chinese New Year, he could only make 30, before the factory closed down for the holiday.

    All these were sold out instantly on pre-orders from the adverts in Model Collector and Diecast Collector.

    The first 30 were a Special Edition, featuring bullet-style wing mirrors, with a signed and numbered certificate.

    More will be available in late March/early April (without the bullet wing mirrors). If you wish to buy one of the next lot, let me know ASAP and I can prepare my order. A new colour will be added.

     Once again, please accept my apology for the wait, but it's probably best to phone me and pre-order, instead of waiting for the models to arrive.

     

    Tel: 01244 320761.

     

    Many thanks for your patience. Frank.
