Mark 5 Delivery Update - Almost Here!
It's been a long time coming, but finally, there is some GREAT news regarding our first coach project; the lovely CAF Mark 5 and Mark 5a coaches.
What is the news? Well, they are almost here!
Our Caledonian Sleeper coaches dock and land in our warehouse W/C December 12th (subject to customs, naturally!) where they will be unloaded, have the pallets broken down, counted into stock, checked, then picked, packed and posted out to modellers around the world.
Of course, with our Class 92s arriving at the same time, it's going to be a very busy period in our warehouse, but we will endeavor to get them all out to you in as a timely fashion as we can. We thank you in advance for your patience.
So, that takes care of the sleepers. What about the TPE Mark 5s? Well it's more good news there too!
Firstly, we need to get this off our chests; TPE livery is very challenging to paint and print in model form!!! It's a fantastic livery though, and although it took a long and complex process to get right, as you can see from the below shot taken last month at the factory it has been well worth the effort.
Production of the TPE Mark 5s is also now complete, and they're also in transit to us. Due to land with us at the warehouse W/C December 19th. Once again, subject to customs checks and arrangements. They will also have to be unloaded, have the pallets broken down, counted into stock, checked, then picked, packed and posted out to modellers around the world.
As this goes into Christmas week we will do our very best to get some dispatched before Christmas shut down, but the vast majority of orders will be dispatched after Christmas and into early January. We will do our very best to get the orders out as quick as we possibly can and try to work around postal strike action too as much as possible.
So, our Mark 5 production odyssey is now at an end, and delivery is in the next few weeks! It's been a huge challenge, but we think you'll agree that they make for very, very pretty models indeed.
Both have been so popular that only the TPE Mark 5 Pack 2 set is available on pre-order still. Pre-order these coaches exclusively from Accurascale today by clicking here.
