That was my main objection to using the NGS shop for Modelmaster plates - if I was after a specific set of plates, why should I give some alternatives that I don't want??

Roy L S is quite right, the plates come unpainted as an A3 sheet of etches ,Ray Evans of BH Enterprises offered to buy them  a few years ago as he used to buy
Them from the original supplier but his offer was turned down which is why he has nearly run out of nameplates and can't get any more.

According to my N Gauge Journal, the NGS Shop has reopened.

Yes, the shop is up and running in what is best described as"temporary mode" but most of the items on the original stock list are available.  The easiest way to place orders is by using ngsjoin.com and follow the links.

Don't ask for what you cannot or will not use; if you specify only what you want, and it isn't available, you won't get anything.  Simple, really.

If you read the members section of the  Society Journal you will see that since the shop reopened members are invited to make specific requests for plates without making payment.  If the requested name is available it will then be supplied after receipt of payment.  It also says in the journal that this is a temporary measure whilst the entire stock of plates is catalogued, at which time availability lists will be published.

I also thought the shop was up and running (sort of) and did as requested on the web site, to email the chairman asking for specific name plates.

This I did on the 6th of June and also on the 20th of June, so far I have not had any response so I guess everyone must be busy sorting things or gone away on holiday?

Totally baffled now as to how I should order any name plates

Is there any news as to when the Modelmaster transfers will be available online?

At this time, the answer is no.

There is a lot more work involved at the moment with the Colletts, kit composition and nameplates at the moment.

As I am leaving the  post of webmaster within the next few months I will ensure it is kept as an important topic.

Nope.

Never occurred to me that a pinned thread would be pinned if there was another thread we were supposed to refer to instead ...

This thread was originally for notifying everyone of the temporary closure of the NGS Shop and subsequent efforts to re-establish it, that is why it was pinned at the top of the section.
