Notice: Temporary disruption to service! January 23, 2020 16:31

Notice of temporary disruption to service:

I pride myself on getting orders out as quickly as possible and post twice a week.

This may suffer a bit as on 13th Jan one of my lasers developed a fault. I mail ordered a spare part which did not resolve the issue.

There has been no adverse effect on the business until now as I run two lasers.

This morning my back-up laser has developed a fault and I am unable to make any fresh kits until the engineer arrives to fix both machines.

Stock levels are fair/ good however movement trays are cut to order and cannot be cut in the short term. If in doubt, please can you email me at charliefoxtrotmodels@hotmail.com and I can check before you place an order. 

As soon as this situation is resolved: I will post again. An engineer is due to visit the workshop on Monday or Tuesday ( Now confirmed Monday 27th Jan) so this may be resolved very quickly. 

Thankfully all orders are up to date and pre-orders for Penarth this weekend are already on the van.

Stocks for Plymouth PAW on 1st / 2nd may be limited and I would recommend a preorder to avoid disappointment.

Colin (currently in melt down mode) ...on the bright side, I will get some design time in.


ROBIN Nottingham show cancelled! December 15, 2019 16:57

It is with regret that I need to advise you that the "Red on Blue in Nottingham" show ROBIN has been cancelled for 2020

Looks like Charlie Foxtrot Models will need to wait a while longer before I can get into a Nottingham based show.

I am sorry to disappoint any people who had planned to attend.

New Releases: 28mm 1:56 "Needle Memorial" by Debris of War and "Headstones" November 1, 2019 11:32

New releases to compliment the recently released Eglise (French Church). Resin cast "Needle Memorial" by Debris of War and "Headstones" cut from 2mm MDF.

It is odd how a different emotion is felt looking at these when compared to the "Graveyard" (also by Debris of War.)


New Release 28mm 1:56 "Eglise ( French Church ) in 2 versions. October 30, 2019 09:52

After months of research and designing I am pleased to release the 28mm 1:56 Eglise kit. A generic church in a French style with features taken from a number of buildings. 

The model is available in 2 versions one "Plain Wall" for you to texture yourself (comes with card roof tiles) and one "Stone Wall" with engraved walls and engraved roof tiles. 

This is the biggest kit I have made, using over 12 square foot of wood and will be  a real centre piece.

A lot of designing has gone into this kit not only to convey realistic architectural detail but also to make it a very easy model to put together. 

The painted kit was textured with polyfilla by Geoff from Purple Lion Creations. More of his outstanding work can be viewed here: https://www.purplelioncreations.co.uk/

I will be producing a step by step assembly and painting guide after the imminent Crisis and Warfare shows. 


New Release 28mm 1:56 "Stone Wall Arched Gate and Z wall" October 21, 2019 09:35

Two new pieces have been added to the existing "Stone Walls" set.

The arched gate and Z sections have been designed to make an imposing perimeter wall for the soon to be released Eglise (French Church). The sections can be used for domestic walling, farmyard or surrounding a chateau, park or cemetery.

The walls have been painted in the same style as the Stone Barn and finished with a polyfilla mortar. 

Warlord Games Panzer IV is for scale purposes only.

American Civil War 101. Not War but Murder May 28, 2019 10:45

I am spending an increasing amount of time researching models for a new period of gaming for me: ACW. I have enjoyed Sharp Practice in Napoleonics and AWI and this seems a natural next step. While I have been digging out old ACW articles in Wargames Soldiers & Strategy, watching "Gettysburg" DVD for inspiration, I was contacted by games designer Tod Kershner.

Tod has a number of Charlie Foxtrot Models "Dial Counters" and "Double Dial Counters" which he has put to good use in his latest game " American Civil War 101. Not War but Murder". I am delighted to see that the dials appear in many of the photographs that adorn this publication.
