Welcome to this week's blog. We had a mostly sunny, busy and successful event at Somerset Armed Forces Day last Saturday. With over 36,500 visitors to the event, we were so busy that we forgot to take any photos of the military vehicles and attractions - whoops. We just caught the sound and smoke of the Red Arrows flying over at lunchtime. This week, I have very little to report. Oh wait... there was something... Ah yes, we have a large number of pre-ordered Akagi kits (4851) on the way plus the Panzer VI Ausf. B "Konigstiger" kits (3113). Yes, it's finally happening and if you haven't pre ..read more

Hello :) It's been an exceptionally busy week here in the BrickTanks warehouse, squeezing five days into four is no mean feat! Typically our COBI delivery didn't arrive until after the long weekend which meant we had a huge number of pre-orders to despatch in addition to all the bank hol weekend orders. Thankfully we got it all done and dusted by Wednesday afternoon. Plus Jason, our new recruit, started on Tuesday and hit the ground running. He did a fantastic job during his first short week and we are so glad to have him onboard, and grateful he could start immediately. We have a few new 1 ..read more

Hello! We could hardly keep up with all the new COBI kit announcements this week and I thought last week was busy! More importantly the really BIG news is that COBI are finally (FINALLY!) bringing out an Avro Lancaster Bomber and a "Dambusters" version as well. For anyone who has followed us for a while then you will know we have been campaigning for this since 2018 but we gave an extra big push this year - thanks to nearly 200 of you who added your name to our 'petition'. Every year COBI has told us "next year" you can have your Lancaster. I have to say a HUGE thank you to COBI's UK Country ..read more

Hello! It's been another packed week here at Bricktanks - pardon the pun! Our CaDA delivery arrived and we have been busy unpacking and sending out all the backorders on top of our normal daily orders. If you are waiting on a CaDA kit, it won't be long now. See below for which kits are back in stock. If you have been eagarly waiting for a T90 or Humvee kit, then you will need to wait a little longer I'm afraid. We have the kits but the RC components haven't turned up yet. We will release these kits as soon as we receive the missing elements. COBI UPDATE: There's been a general drip-feeding ..read more
