concerning Clifton Curios Scale Models during the CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
[29th March 2020]
Temporary Closure


Delivery of many items from abroad is significantly delayed. Several countries have suspended postal operations. I'll keep posting any new stock that arrives.


More stock arrived today in the form of the SWS Henschel Hs-129 Tank Buster, and the re-issued SWS USN A-1H and USAF A-1J Skyraiders with respective Weapons Sets

Trade and existing Pre-orders

Limited amounts of new stock continue to arrive.

Some stock is held up in other countries awaiting restrictions on postal and couriers services

If you have pre-ordered an item from me, I’ll contact you when it is in stock.
I'll retain the items until the shop reopens.

Being a “bricks and mortar” shop I do not operate a mail order service and it is not feasible for me to conduct the business from home.

With restricted cash flow I'm not at present ordering in new stock unless it was pre-ordered from my suppliers.

Thank you for all your kind supportive texts and emails. They are greatly appreciated.

I sincerely hope that you all remain well in these difficult times,

Best regards
