Welcome to my goodies page.

As I develop parts for my models, some may be of interest to others. I am not a trader as such and I do not hold stocks of all of these items all of the time. I also do not do commissions but if you are interested in some of the bits and pieces I do please email me at jim@p4newstreet.com to discuss your requirements. Please note the lead time on some items can be quite long.

As is often the case, if you have a question about a product (other than ordering info) there’s a fair bet someone else wants to know the answer to so I have enabled comments on this page if you wish to use them.
