Thanks to all who have contacted this website. I am sorry I have not been able to reply to all posts. I am, to put it mildly, in it up to my neck...
My excuse is that this business has grown out of hand since I started. I only wanted a handful of models when I started in February 2011 but by April 2013 I would have handled over 8,000! And another 4,000 in the pipeline. Perhaps I should have taken on more staff but the banks have been absolutley c**p over financial support. Despite the new schemes to help new businesses it is impossible to get funding from them. I owe a great deal (literally) to supporters who bought bonds or sponsorship. Their support has kept the project going.
So, I was barely able to pay for production let alone pay the wages of even one person to help me dispatch the orders. As for me, I have had to go back to work to pay my mortgage. Which does not give me a lot of time to even answer emails.
So, a big sorry to those who have not received models, replies, messages or even acknowledgement. I will continue to do my best and improve by systems so that mistakes happen less frequently. And, when I can afford it, I will get some help.
In the meantime, the rally and museum season is starting. I hope to see a few of you at the events I can get to. Please do not hesitate to drop in at my stall. It was a pleasure to see so many of our supporters at the MBF exhibition at Whitton (Twickenham) last Saturday. See you in Birmingham soon, at Aldridge and Wythall.
Best wishes to all members and supporters of the Forward Association!
