RKKY wagons are now in stock!

RKKY stock has now arrived. To those who were thinking about placing an order but who haven’t yet, don’t miss out!

All pre-orders have now been shipped as of this morning. Thank you to all for your custom!

Now, the next one…

Weathered RKKYs

Our friend Mike Crompton has worked his weathering magic on a set of pre-production RKKYs, some photos of which are reproduced below. Mike has used a combination of airbrushing, weathering pencils and pastels to produce these effects. He has also added his trademark real reflectors to the side sills. (The production models represent this feature with paint).

A shipment of RKKYs has now left the factory and is being air-freighted to Australia. Just a reminder that quantities are very limited and stock is selling through quickly. Get your orders in now to avoid missing out!


RKKY update – getting close now!

Here’s a few more photos of pre-production samples. We’re getting very close to delivery now!

Drop by and see us at the Brisbane Exhibition on May 7-8!

RKKY Painted Samples

The RKKY painted samples have arrived! A few a little things to correct, but we think they look fantastic! (And while we are on the subject of decoration, a very special thank you is owed to the friend of Hawkmount Models who literally scrubbed the rust off the deck of an RKKY with a brush to find out what the lettering printed there actually said. Unlike the rest of the decoration, the deck lettering isn’t included on the prototype engineering drawings. We’ve faithfully reproduced what he found – see the third photo below).

Just a reminder, the pre-order price of $199.95 per pack has been extended to the end of January, so now’s the time to place an order if you want to take advantage of the discounted price!
