We have three new sets of figures, three old sets that have had a mild re-master and are available again, and a set of separate heads. All of these are produced in white metal.
The new sets of figures are as follows:
GM72-025: Ratings relaxing/reading, lying sitting and standing
GM72-026: Officers and Rating, “looking”
GM72-027: Sailors in duffle coats (3)
GM72-027 is our first set with separate heads (two Ratings in caps and one Officer)
We have also produced a further set of separate heads (GM72-028). This has 9 heads: 6 Ratings in sailor caps and 3 Officers. These heads are different to those in set GM72-027.
Some sets have been sold out and unavailable for a while. The following have been re-mastered and are available again:
GM72-003: Officers (1)
GM72-007: Officers & Rating – duffle coats (1)
GM72-014: Ratings – working dress (1)
Unfortunately, significant increases in the cost of producing moulds and castings necessitate an increase in price to £7.40 per set (recommended selling price). Sets of resin figures within the Gunthwaite range continue to be £7.40.
We’re very pleased to announce that The Model Dockyard is now a stockist of Gunthwaite naval figures. Their website offers a wide range of kits and fittings for the naval modeller and we’re pleased to be added to their inventory.
