Re: Anybody home... ?

@HH - Yes a CNC machine (at least as I understand it :lol: ) allows moulds (or should that be molds, or is that just American??) to be cut directly from a 3D software model. So rather than having to make the mo[u?]ld by hand - or at least the basic design before being cut by machine - it's done dire...

Re: Anybody home... ?

Hi All, Just had a great catch-up with Tracy at AF; she's happy with me sharing the following... The reason why everything has been quiet at their end is that they've been on furlough - Tracy has been sheilding & with shops being shut & so few bulk orders coming in it made sense to only go in when n...

Re: Lend and Lease Shermans M4A2

Hi Privosky,
We used to be able to as you can see from the comments, so not sure why we can't now & looking after the "back end" of the Forum is above my payscale (let alone beyond my tech knowledge!!)
Sorry can't be more helpful
Cheers

Re: New kit

Hi Ash, As I've just mentioned on your inrtoduction post where you mention the T34, the build instructions are on the back of the box - with so few parts (which is one of the great bonuses of the whole AF range) they don't need to be too expansive. However, if you are struggling where to glue someth...

Re: Newbie

Hi Ash,
Welcome to the Forum.
The build instructions are on the back of the box - with so few parts (which is one of teh great bonuses of the whole AF range) they don't need to be too expansive.
However, if you are struggling where to glue something, by all means get in touch
Cheers

Re: Anybody home... ?

Hi Sarge, No, not heard a thing about that. I've tried contacting both Tracy & Nicholas on several occasions both by phone & email, but not had a reply - which is certainly unusual. I did wonder whether this was because of lockdown & possible furlough. Companies House still shows Armourfast (London)...

Re: Anybody home... ?

Hi Sarge & Jaime, First of all, Happy New Year - hope that you (& everyone else that reads this) haven't been impacted too badly by Covid. I've tried contacting Tracy & Nicholas, but no joy, yet. However, this could well be because they are having to stay out of the production unit when I've called ...

Re: What's Next?

@Jamie & @HH.. just to be clear, I'm "only" one of theModerators here, I don't work at Armourfast, so my speculation regarding the possible reason for non response (yet) to my emails/calls as being Covid/Furlough related is just that: speculation... but it is a potential cause. I was aware of a coup...
