Just a quick note to tell you all about the new Old Crow site. As many of you are aware I am about to start work full-time on a major feature film. As a result I will not have time to continue Old Crow production at the present rate.

I have posted a new webpage which will not show the majority of the existing ranges. Instead I will have many more regular updates featuring new products and limited editions. There will be no shopping cart initially, but I will be inviting customers to email orders to me direct. Anyone who already has a wish-list is also invited to contact me. The home page address is unchanged –

oldcrowmodels.co.uk

and you can email me at sales@oldcrowmodels.co.uk.

I hope that this arrangement will give visitors something interesting to look at, but will allow me to control the workload.

Thank you to all of you for your continuing interest and support – it is hugely appreciated.

Regards
Jez
Old Crow

I may be asking for a few of the older ones on my wish list, But I expect I'll love the new stuff as much. Wonderful news about the movie work though – hope it leads to just as much work as you want! dr pepper

OK, what did I miss? I saw nothing indicating the movie. can you please send me the right way ThogLongus? I am interested in seeing one of us get into the mainstream.

@ badger22-

Hi Owen,
The film in question is "All You Need Is Kill", a manga-based sci-fi war story. The book is an awesome read, so the film should be pretty good too!

WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

badger2227 Jul 2012 6:17 p.m. PST

Very cool. So we should see some good looking and sort of believeable alien gear out there then.Way to go man.

Of course this happens just as TooFatLardies is bringing out a SF game based on ther IABSM game system. Once I have it I plan on grabbing up a bunch of SF models, and would love to add to the small amount of Old Crow I have.

All the best! This is a great break – looking forward to seeing your work in the film!

Oh snap, I just read All You Need Is Kill a couple of months ago. Had heard a movie was being made.

For those who haven't read it, think the "Groundhog Day" concept, but with an alien invasion and power armored goodness. It's a quick read.

Should be an awesome film. Anxious to see the film and the Old Crow work.

Rats! I mean, congratulations! But I just bought Tomorrow's War and want to buy some tanks and APVs. Is your catalogue still around somewhere?

John Treadaway02 Aug 2012 7:26 a.m. PST

I know I can't help directly with this but I indirectly.

I must have (almost) every vehicle Old Crow produce on the Slammers site on the extensive gallery pages and sprinkled throughout ( hammers-slammers.com and it's linked from my name on the Old Crow site). Certainly in both 15mm and 28mm there's little missing but I have none of the 6mm naval stuff nor any of the 15mm buildings pictured.

By all means copy pics off of the site (or link to them) in an email and say "can I have two of these please", or whatever.

In addition, I also have a detachment buying guide for the slammers forces that gives some information here PDF link most (but not all) of these vehicles are Old Crow (with some GZG) and it tends to list the turret options.

I know this is a work around but I don't know what else I can do to help!

Good news for Jez, less good for fans of his toys. I'd best pull my shopping list together.
