Next show for RetrokiT is Smallspace 4, in Hanslope, nr. Milton Keynes, UK.  This is our fourth participation to this epic SF/F event, the occasion to meet up with a few old friends, meet new ones and hopefully, release a few new ‘yellow helpers’..!  The date is Sunday 12 July, from 9am.

Little setback..

RW44100WIP

Aaargh!  The planned release of three new ‘yellow helpers’ this month is postponed until probably August due to caster’s health reasons..  There are times when I think the casting should be done in-house, but then I remember I would not have the time to enjoy myself with the making of new patterns..  Outsourcing some aspects of the business made sense 8 years ago, and I think it still makes sense nowadays, even if little setbacks do prop up time to time.  Anyway, work on new patterns is going well and our ‘to be cast’ list grows longer and longer with (along with quite a few other ‘yellow helpers’), a Rufe Egg Plane conversion kit, a 1/200 Boeing 717, and 1/144 bits for Intruder (due out later this month!), Vigilante, Stratojet, Jaguar, Delta Dart and soon to join the list, early Stratofortress.

Middelkerke Show

RetrokiT were, as usual, trading at this very friendly show on the Belgian coast on Sunday 17 May, and we were very honoured to be given the task of selecting the Best of Show from the competition entries..!  We were also offering a special prize for a model built by a Junior modeller and this went to a 9 year old boy from the organising club for a nice ‘Tintin’ diorama.

Welcome back!

Yes, you are not mistaken, this is the RetrokiT website, new look, which you will hopefully find easier to use.  I am afraid your old registration will not count for much anymore and you will be required to register once more with us…  Please do accept our apologies, but rest assured we have worked hard to make your visit, your experience easier, better, nicer.  And safer too.  Hence the ‘s’ that follows the ‘http’ in our address now!

We will be trying to use this new platform (a new cart, in effect) better than the last one, as it’s full of exciting features, but please be patient, because we still need to find the time to develop new patterns, put them into production and on sale..!  Obviously we want a nice website but above all, we need things in it that will make you pay us a visit!

Ideas, comments, suggestions about the new look website are all welcome, please feel free to contact us via the.. ‘Contact Us’ page..!  If you do meet a ‘bug’ or another, let us know too!

We must thank our webmaster, Ashley Van Steenacker in Belgium, for convincing us to do the changes, and helping us implementing them.  Ashley stays on hand to deal with any issues, and we are really very grateful for all his hard work, energy and enthusiasm.

Well, let’s get back to modelling now!
