Following the announcement from Martin Finney of his retirement, Brassmasters are pleased to announce that we have acquired the 4mm range of Martin Finney kits, the 7mm kits remaining with Martin. These high quality kits have been admired by ourselves and fellow finescale modellers since their introduction, and this will ensure their future production. It is our intention to make some of the castings and sundry components available as soon as possible and, in the longer-term, to introduce further kits.

Martin is working with us to ensure a smooth handover and when this is completed we will set out our future plans. However, it is unlikely that any of the existing kits will be available again until the Autumn. The kits we have acquired are listed below.
