We’ve been planning a brief shutdown to Brigade for a while. Old Faithful, the centrifuge, our most important piece of equipment, needs to be sent away for a service after many years of (mostly) uncomplaining duty, just to keep it in tip top condition, and it will allow us to give the workshop a desperately-needed tidy as well.

This seems like as good a time as any, the autumn is always a quieter time for sales, and it should allow us to be back and ready for the busier Christmas period. So we’ve taken the shopping cart offline for a short period – we can’t say exactly how long, that depends on when we get the kit back from the engineers, hopefully no later than the end of the month.

The website is all still there, so you can browse the whole range, you just can’t buy anything. We are still able to supply resin-only items, ones with no metal parts at all, such as most 6mm/10mm/15mm buildings and some of the Small Scale Scenery range. But it’s not possible to get the website to do that (or not without lots of work), so if you would like to order these you’ll have send us a list and we’ll do it the old-fashioned way.
