Hi everyone,

If anyone else is after any of these placards, please let me know.

At this stage, I'm waiting to get the proofs back from the printers, so I'm happy to keep the orders open at this stage.

It looks like we will be able to reproduce the Bamford winch ID plate as well, due to popular demand!

Thanks to everyone who has already ordered,

Cheers,

Mike..

A quick update on the placards,

We have been going back and forth with the printers, correcting the proofs of all of the placards to ensure that they are exactly right.

The final proofs should be ready this week, and we will get them printed off when the printers get back from their Christmas break in mid January.

So, the light is there at the end of the tunnel, we are almost there!

Thanks everyone for your patience, with the sheer number of placards we are re-making, this has been a fairly major project.

Hopefully the next time I update this it will be early in 2016, and they will be ready to send out. :D

Got a parcel in today's post.

Finally. ;D

Well worth it though, we are very happy with them.

Here are some of the general ones,



Nomenclature plates,



And the Servicing Data plates,




I'm so used to seeing the old faded damaged ones, that these ones look a bit strange!

I will send everyone who has ordered some of these a pm with the bank account details etc, and get them sent out.

I will also be able to bring them up to Corowa if that suits anyone.

I realise that this has taken a long time, but we were very particular about getting these as correct as possible. We had a lot of corrections etc. to sort out until we were finally happy with the proofs from the printer.

Due to the fact that these were made by draughtsmen drawing them up in the 60s, no two placards are ever the same. The servicing data plates are a good example, they seemed to change slightly with each contract!

I do have some spares, if anyone else is after any, please let me know.

Mike.

Okay, I have (hopefully) sent messages out to everyone who ordered some of these.

Messages have gone out to,

Freelandy, Hot Rover, Stephen Davis, kman, Anthony Egretz, Carzee, John H, Diana, Ellard, and Agas5.

Mick, you are a special case (!) I will contact you tomorrow!

If I have missed anyone, or if anyone else is interested, let me know as I did make some extras.
