Shapeways who print the 3D parts for my kits have advised that a price increase will take effect from Monday 19th October. I don't know how significant this will be and if possible I will absorb it in the current kit prices. Any orders received before then will be charged at the current price, even if they are currently out of stock.
CORRECTION - the previously mentioned drawings for the CR L class were in fact for the GWR rebuild of "155". Further to this the drawings are complete and have been sent to the etchers.
