Similar story for me - still I'd rather they were right than rushed

Do you think it would be prudent for me to pre-order? I've got a funny feeling that the price is going to go up when they are actually released ...

They can still legally raise the price and ask you pay the difference.
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

I think it's been too long for the price to remain as was. Usually you get a mail along the lines of "the price is now expected to be £***. Should this not be acceptable please cancel your order"

I've got that feeling too - they are very good value at sub £100 from most retailers

Collet's offer the option of paying up front, in instalments, or prior to despatch.

Anxiety is a lot like a toddler. It never stops talking, tells you you’re wrong about everything, and wakes you up at 3am.

I get nervous about just about everything. Sometimes I literally don’t know why I’m anxious. I just am and no-one seems to understand that.

I was in the shop this morning and asked if there was any progress in an approximate date when they would know what month or year this new batch of 73s might be released. I was pointed in the direction of the shop manager, who replied with his own question "how long's a piece of string?".

Lovely  :-\ ???

We no doubt have to wait for this to be put in the Dapol production pipeline so more a case of 'How long is a pipeline?' I have a green one on pre order but am not holding my breath :no:

Having just taken delivery of one of the latest Dapol 33's, I'm wondering if part of the delay is that they are re engineering the chassis to take Next 18 sockets? The new 33's chassis is very different to the old one. Given how poor the DCC ready 73 chassis was compared to the old "non ready" chassis, it might, sort of, justify the wait.
