All,

A gentle reminder that there is now less than a week to go before the discounted pre-order offer on the Carflats ends.

So, if you haven't already done so and, want to obtain a 2 discount per vehicle on the full price, head on over to :

http://www.ngsjoin.com/br-carflat-a-pre-order--deposit-282-c.asp

BEFORE midnight, 31st December 2017.

The order book will stay open into the New Year, but all models ordered after the deadline will be liable for the full price.

Best

Scott

EDIT: As Mike corrects, below, the Carflats will not be available for general sale until after the pre-order distribution is under-way.

My apologies for getting this wrong

"The order book will stay open into the New Year, but all models ordered after the deadline will be liable for the full price."


Sorry, this is incorrect!  The pre-order facility will close down completely to allow admin work in connection with the distribution of pre-ordered models to be commenced.

Once the models have arrived and distribution of pre-orders is under way, the Carflats will be made available for sale on the Shop site in the usual way.

Mike, my humblest apologies. I have misinterpreted the situation.

I will put out a correction on social media.

Sorry again

Best

Do I need a carflat? No. Have I ordered one? Of course I have. I've got at least one of each rtr item made by the NGS so I had to keep up the tradition!

Cheers

Ollie

I'm looking forward to replicating a 1970's memory of carflats at Abingdon railway station loaded with protective-waxed MGBs from the Abingdon factory.
Now all I want is for Oxford Diecast to produce their red MGB in a range of other classic colours - I believe primrose yellow is in the pipeline  - how about mustard yellow, british racing green, oxford blue, old English white? ... and then a vinyl-roofed MGB-GT version?

Ah, the waiting game that N-gauge must play these days!

I bought a red MGB for the Motorail carflats and realised it wouldn't have travelled too well without a 'hood'! I'd be grateful for practical ideas  as to how a hood could be represented.

MGB's had flat canvases stretched over the opening for winter storage instead of hoods.  This was a much tougher material than the hoods.

And easy to model by simply flooding the cockpit with black paint.

Or perhaps a little less drastic, careful application of masking or other 'fine grain' tape could be made to look pretty close to the kind of cover shown in the useful photo.

Black electrical tape should be ideal.

I was hoping for OD to produce the fixed rigid hardtop of the MGB GT ... often finished, like Inspector Morse's red Jag, with textured leather effect vinyl glued onto the steel roof!

Yep, that'd work too Dave. :thumbsup: I was prioritizing durability.

I noticed on the NGS website the other day that the Carflats have now arrived and have just received an email asking for payment of the balance, which was very swiftly made.

Looking forward to receiving them very much.  Has anyone read the RM review?  I presume it was positive?
