Wan't me! Promise Pray If the Colonia is one you have already paid for then doubtless it will ship next week. What else do you have on order?

Another nice looking model, still no sign of them appearing on our shores Sad


It won't be long now! My paid for mine a long time ago but wanted it shipped with some other models so hopefully Monday it will leave Germany. Don't mind paying for the models but I am stingy when it comes to postage Wink

Paul R


I mean the Keller and Hess, theres still no sign of that yet Sad Oh well, i'll just have to continue to be patient i suppose! And Paul i'm with you on the postage I hate paying for it for only one model so I normally try to get a couple together if I can! Wink

Should have a few models arrving this week hopefully, starting with the much anticipated Kavanagh today.. WoooHoooo!!!! Teeth

Surprised the K+H hasn't shipped but the Colonia only just arrived so that should ship next week all being well. And then there will be a wee wait until the Wocken, Affolter, Senn AG etc.... start to ship. Suits me as I will be out of the country first 2 weeks of November!

I'm pretty sure if they were on Christians doorstep then he would have sent them...they obviously have not arrived so he can't ship something he hasn't got yet. I spoke to him via phone many months ago and was pleasantly surprised by his friendliness and good nature ...he has no control over WSI and when they send him goods...so if anyone needs a rev it is probably the manufacturer.

But they have arrived though, thats the problem! I got an e-mail nearly two weeks ago telling me they were in stock and others have already recieved theirs last week, it wouldn't be a problem if he hadn't got them yet. What harm, we'll just have to hold tight and wait for them to arrive!

Why not just send Christian an email?
I have bugged him often enough and only recently ordered!
He has been very helpful and patient and there could be a simple reason you have not received them, even that the courier has lost the parcel!!

Well it has been almost a week and I was starting to get WSI delivery withdrawal symptoms Confused

Thankfully this one turned up today to help alleviate my pain Teeth This is the TGX in the livery of van Santen, which of course has been out a while now but I only just got it.





















Thanks again for looking,

Dear all,
after spending a few crap days in Russia, it was nice to come home to these models. Firstly it is a trio of MAN TGX Ballast trucks.I actually photographed these as a group because rain was imminent, but I think they look good as a group.

















Thanks for looking,

Dear all,
here are the TGX Colonia pictures. A little rushed as it was starting to rain and as much as I hate to get the models wet, I hate even more to get my £1000 camera wet!











Thank again for looking,

guys... when in doubt about a parcel, contact us. directly. by mail. by phone.

We have complete tracking information on every shipment, thats why you pay insured shipping after all!

also: if you pay by PayPal it can take up to 7 workdays to have the money appear definately on our account. during that time... PayPal works with your money! and they even charge you for that, on top of it.

still, until we don´t have the payment we cannot ship out, PayPal or not.

Noel: your Keller+Hess model is arrived in Ireland according to tracking, and therefore will surely be delivereds in the coming days

I had to contact Christian directly when my K&H went AWOL. I moved house between ordering and the model coming out resulting in a 'slight mix-up'.

Christian took me at my word and assured me (within an hour of me contacting him by email a few days ago) that a replacement would be sent. My Dad tells me there is a big parcel sat waiting at his place which I'll go and collect after work tomorrow. (It should have Colonia, K&H and Wagner inside...Teeth )

Thanks for sorting it out so efficiently Christian.

Just by how much are you overloading your Colonia model with that transformer...?!! You need modular rows or a girder trailer, surely? (nice pics though, as usual)

The latest Truck and Driver magazine has a picture of a truck where the trailer snapped in the middle through overloading. It's not your truck is it? Wink

Fair point! But it was a rush job - I landed arrived home midnight last night and head out the door again tomorrow morning for 9 days at Agritechnica - Yuk!. A more suitable load will be sourced at some point Wink Might end up with some CAT equipment when I go to the US next month.
