Good old boy is Steve.

I have a few sets on order (that he does not yet produce) for some outstanding projects.

Yep, totally agree, they are very high quality transfers indeed. On the other hand, Fox transfers ...  :veryangry:

Agree Steve produces the goods he is a one man band and works many hours for our pleasures !! So its good to add my thanks as well. I would also add others are available and with differing carriers and slightly differing takes on items. I have also used Fox, Replica. modelmaster and Precision labels to name a few all have given good service.

The original owners of Fox attended exhibitions with a mass of stock and always a queue as they had a massive market share - almost monopoly.  But it only part of a larger graphics business.  Sadly both owners suffered medical issues and cut back and then after IIRC a heart attack Mr Watts stopped most things for a while.  The model transfers side he did from home but I think when he fully retired they returned to the business fold - I am sure you need to have an enthusiast or modeler  on the staff and I have seen some lovely work in 4 and 7mm. But the 2mm/N sales were always very small.   

I have to say that overtime quite a few of my older fox transfers have seen new issues from Steve and so the old ones will never get used. Still very good and if anybody has a need I might have something useful to pass on.

 Never realised that the transfer supply was so highly dependant on so few individuals ( Cue Churchill).
 Think I have tried all the suppliers  in vain for some P numbers to finish off the dozen Private Owner wagons  I have lovingly trashed into a postwar semblance, but if anyone knows otherwise... :helpneededsign:
