Eileens Emporium Newsletter March 2017

Postby derekrussan » Tue Mar 06, 2018 11:32 pm

We are looking forward to Spring, and an improvement in the weather. The Leamington and Warwick show was unfortunately cancelled and some incoming deliveries have been delayed, thankfully these were the only problems caused by the Beast from the East and his girlfriend Emma. We have a busy schedule of shows coming up and look forward to meeting you there.


We have always tried to get young (or indeed not so young) people into the hobby. We are always pleased to let youngsters try a bit of airbrushing at shows and and have been surprised a few times at what 10 year old's can do.

We are pleased to announce that we are sponsoring the Children's kit building area at all the BRM shows with the supply of all tools, glues etc. This covers London (Ally Pally), Doncaster and Peterborough.


The biggest news item we have is that we are now able to supply Peco products.

We realised, when Parkside Dundas sold the Parkside Kits business to Peco, that there would be a lack of product availability at the shows that Parkside Dundas attended. Especially the Scalefour and EM Gauge specialist shows. After much discussion we are please to announce that we have an account open with Peco, so can fill this void.

We now have in stock all of the 00 Kits and Accessories, N Gauge Kits and Accessories and selected 0 Gauge Kits and Accessories. At the time of writing all the 00 and N products are on the website and we are adding the 0 gauge as time permits.

We are offering all the 00 kits with either the standard wheels, or with a swap for Gibson EM or P4 wheels. We are also offering all kits in multi packs of 4 or 10 at approximately 5% and 10% discounts respectively.

We also now have in stock Modelmaster transfers to suit the 00 range of kits and are just awaiting some information to enable us to add them to the website.

It follows naturally that we will be adding Gibson 00, EM and P4 Wagon and Coach wheels to the website as soon as we have time.

We are sorry if we have not got all of this on the website yet, but with the sheer volume of products multiplied by the number of wheel and quantity options it is a surprising number of line items. In fact it has increased our number of products on the website by over 30% already, and that is without over half the 0 Gauge or any transfers or wheels.

We do not intend to stock too many products from the Peco range but we will be getting Wills architectural sheets and maybe some other kits. We can always get items in to order for you.

The only other notable addition is that we now have Foam Board from Maquett in stock.


With more products to display we are redesigning our exhibition stand. The changes will happen progressively. We will have more open space at one end of the stand and many more products displayed on vertical racking. We hope you like it and will look forward to hearing your feedback.


Please note that we have a double show with Derby and Reading in May, so both shows will have limited stock. The main differences are where we send the 250mm and 500mm sections, Plastruct racks and Airbrushing demonstration. Pre-ordering is advised for all these shows.

Derby will have 250mm Metal Sections, Smiths Couplings, Parkside 4mm and 2mm, Gaugemaster products and Airbrushing Demo. There will be no 500mm sections or Plastruct.

Reading will have 500mm sections, Parkside 7mm only, Plastruct and limited Airbrushing Stock. There will be no 250mm sections.

Most other stock will be at both shows, but we cannot guarantee any particular product, so please pre-order where possible.


The long awaited Taps have arrived.

We have also had a delivery of some Bill Bedford items, but there are still some were awaiting artworks for. These should be here within 4 weeks.

5.5" and 8" Hold and Fold tools are out of stock and on order.


We have a special offer valid until the end of March 2018. We are offering an additional 5% off all Parkside products, this is in addition to multipack discounts. Specifically any product listed under "Kits/Parkside Kits" section on the products page of the website.
