Has Alba models ceased trading?

Post by peterbunce »

Hi,

I have sent a PM and a couple of e-mails to Alba, asking for a price for the 4mm scale version of the Family saloon to Dia 50.

They have had for some time the 4mm versions of John Boyle's 7mm scale coach kits.

There has been no reply to any: have the ceased trading? The website is still available and mentions the 4mm range

Yours Peter

Alba Models is alive and well.

I had a similar problem last month. The problem is the server that David uses, which seems to store up e-mails for a month or so and then release them in a flood. David was most apologetic.

If you have no joy soon, send me a PM and I will give you his mobile number.

HI.

I have spoken to David, and he has had a lot of trouble with what was his e-mail address. That has now been closed, and he has a new one

The original request cannot be completed at the moment, but will be soon; he is ordering some 4mm D50 (CR Family saloon, as number 17, in the coach book on page 288), kits.

Peter.

Alba models hasn't ceased trading

Sorry to those looking for kits and bits, we decided to take a short break from things.

I'll be getting back to the workshop this week and hopefully have things under control by early next week.

Just a note for those of a sensitive dispersion; don’t try looking for Caledonian Railway kits on the web using "Alba models" as your search.

Regards David
