  1. AN APOLOGY FROM FRANK JONES OF BRITISH HERITAGE MODELS...

     

     

    I would like to apologise to my customers who have been waiting patiently for the launch of the Majesty Classics MC 06 1962 Singer Vogue saloon moddel. Owing to unprecendented demand from my launch articles and adverts in Model Collector and Diecast Collector, all launch stock of this model sold out on the strength of pre-orders alone and I am currently waiting on the replacement stock from the manufacturer.

     

    As you all know, these models are of exceptional quality, detailing, and finish, and hand-built manufacture of them is a very skilled, painstaking and time consuming affair.

     

    I can only ask you to remain patient until the new order arrives into stock. It will then be placed onto the site as soon as possible.

     

    Thank you all for your understanding - Frank. 

  2. Hot on the heels of the best-selling BHM Majesty Hillman Super Minx, comes the sister model: the 1962 Singer Vogue saloon.

     

    Arrival is imminent and the models can be viewed on this site in the British Heritage Models, Majesty Classics category.

     

    Available in three beautiful two-tones choices, the quality, detailing, and finish are superb.

     

    Keep watching for availability, which will be very soo.

     

    Regards to all - Frank.

  3. The Silas Hillman Hunter sold out extremely quickly, when it was released earlier this year. This was mainly due to there being only two colours available, each limited to 100 models. A lot of collectors were very disappointed at missing it and are still contacting me now, about availabilty.

     

    Now, just arrived into stock is the sister model to the Hunter - the Silas Models Singer Vogue. Supply of this model is following the same pattern as the Hunter: two colours only, limited to 100 models per colour.

     

    The Singer is now in stock and the two colours available, Burnt Almond, and Maroon, are ready for sale.

     

    However, to avoid disappointment, if you are seriously thinking of adding this model to your collection, I would advise you to do so as soon as possible, as the model will be for sale from BHM via this website, Ebay, Model Collector, and Diecast Collector. Obviously, with four retail outlets for the model, I expect it won't be too long before this also sells out.

     

    So, you better shove a note up the chimney, to Santa, right sharpish!!!

     

    Frank.

  4.  

    The last model from Frederic Cros, of Silas Models, the 1965 Jensen CV8 has almost sold out!

     

    First colour to go was the Botticelli blue (Ltd. 100). This sold out within two weeks of launch.

     

    Dark Carriage green (Ltd. 100) is now rated extremely limited, British Heritage Models having managed to acquire the last dozen, available to retailers. This colour has now been deleted from BHM Ebay, owing to critical shortage, and can now only be bought from BHM via this website or by phone: 01244 320761.

     

    Oyster grey (Ltd. 100) is seriously limited and will sell out before too long.

     

    If you have been thinking of buying the Silas Jensen, to avoid disappointment, I would advise you to do so as soon as possible, otherwise they may all be gone.

     

    NOW is the time to tell Father Christmas what you want to find at the bottom of your bed (apart from Marilyn Monroe) on Christmas morning.

     

    Regards to all - frank.

     

     

  5. Big pre-orders for the Silas Models Austin Maxi means that this model will not be around for long!!!

     

    Arrival is imminent - but remember - there will only be ONE HUNDRED OF EACH COLOUR: 300 models in total, and not all of these will be coming to BHM because this number is for WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION!!!

     

    Check out the photos now - under "Silas Models". Three colours will be available: Tartan red, Cumulus grey, and El Paso beige.

     

    ARRIVAL IS IMMINENT!!!

  7.  

    After two years of consistently being asked by my customers to sell models of cars other than British marques, I am pleased to announce that this decision has now been taken and a sister business has now been brought into operation.

     

    This second business will be know as "World Heritage Models" and the first models to be sold under this umbrella business will be from a brand new, model company known as "Esval Models".

     

    Esval are an American business, based in New York. The models are Limited Edition, and hand built in resin. The quality and finish are superb and you have my wholehearted recommendation regarding these value-for-money models.

     

    As you know, the reputation of British Heritage Models has been built on offering top quality, hand built models at affordable prices. The motto of BHM has always been "Quality, Value, Service..." and this motto is carried over to World Heritage Models. Any model that you buy fron me, you may do so with the COMPLETE CONFIDENCE of knowing that it comes with the British Heritage Models, no-quibble, money-back guarantee.


    A new category, entitled "World Heritage Models" has now been established on this site. Please visit this new category to check out the first models for sale: the 1941 & 1942 Packard 180 7-seater Limousines. I think you will be impressed with them - I certainly am!

     

    Frank.

     

     

     

     

  8.  

     

    It's a bit like buses - you wait ages for one, then three come at once! And here's the first of the three from Silas Models: the 1964 Vauxhall Viva HA de Luxe, in a choice of three, limited edition colours: Grey, Safari beige, and Carnival red.

     

    All three will be on sale from BHM within the next couple of weeks.

     

    The other two imminent arrivals are the Hillman Hunter and the Austin Maxi.

     

    Photos of the Viva can now be seen in the Silas Models category of this website.

     

    Frank.
