|Tim Dykes -- MPH Models
from Tim Dyke: "I have just seen your fascinating site, and
thought you might like to see our latest model, The Lotus IX in 1955 Le
Models specialises in the Le Mans 24 hour race between the years 1949
and 1965. Our aim is to seek out the best available kits of the cars
that ran in those races. We then build a Limited and Numbered edition
of 25 of each subject, incorporating such modi- fications and improvements
as are both possible and necessary. We concentrate on kits made from polyurethane
resin. In our view, this material gives many advantages over white
metal, particularly in crispness and delicacy of detail. However,
on some occasions we will build from scratch, if the subject we wish to
model is not available elsewhere."
|Prices vary according to time taken and cost of components, bearing
in mind the degree of difficulty and number of modifications (frequently
over 250) we make to a particular model. As a guide line, prices
are currently in the £350 area, delivered UK mainland. Overseas
postal costs are additional.
|"When an edition is completed a letter is sent to all customers,
inviting them to confirm their order by cheque, or authority to charge
their credit card, in which case a charge of 2.5% is added to cover our
extra costs. Most overseas customers use this facility, as they frequently
find the cost of issuing a sterling draft is more expensive."
