All Set For 'Ops' Tonight

Wednesday 24th December 2014 at 09:50

Advent is all but gone.  Santa is busily packing his sacks and loading the sleigh in preparation for his major sortie of the year. The new MK.II version is still powered by 8RP (Reindeer Power) but has improved range due to better fuel composition. The MK.II also carries oxygen cylinders allowing Santa to make use of a Type G oxygen mask at altitude.  He prefers to use maps on an old RFC chartboard rather than rely on satellite navigation.

After some minor mishaps in previous years he has also opted to wear safety equipment this year in the form of a 'pilot-type' seat harness parachute.  Hopefully he won't need to use it. You can view the type he is using on the last day of our Advent Calendar (click here).

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of our customers a very Merry Christmas.  We really do appreciate your custom and hope that we've managed to help find something for your collection.  With a bit of luck Santa might be delivering something else on your list but if not do remember that the website is open 24 hours a day throughout the holiday season!

The office is now closed but orders are always welcomed and will be dispatched after we re-open on Monday 5th January.


Merry Christmas
