 These are already off to the printers! The chieftain has a little bit of turret work and and swingfire some metal work to be added to the turret, however Ill do that with paper clips and pliers :) The Peak version will not have two GPMG's....just the peak turret one:)

Hope you like them :)

Finally

I have a dilemma to carry on with goals or stop. I say this because I have a production plan I can keep to and deliver early or on time. If I add more....I this might delay the time I can produce and send them. 

So I've come up with a cunning plan. When the final stretch goal Ferret is completed. I will continue to add them, however I will add a disclaimer that all items will take up to an additional 6 weeks to produce. So people can simply not chose items with that reward and get their stuff on time /early or they happily await the extra 4-6 weeks to get what they really want.

That way I can add some of these - .Spartan, BTR-D, BMD-K, stalwart, saxon, Striker, Rapier, Lynx, Gazelle and possibly Harrier. I may simply add shipping time on each additional stretch goal so that its clear the shipping date is later. Alternatively people can have their items as and when they area ready, however the shipping will increase? This might only work for UK people as shipping is sadly not cheap and I'm pretty sure paying twice for shipping is hard for people. 

What do people think? I'm talking out loud again :)

thanks

      Go with the delayed shipping, it will be easier on the wallet.

      Given I'm not in the UK, I favour the "if you only order from this list shipping will be straight away, but if you order anything from these extras, the whole order will be delayed 8 weeks" option. (I made it 8, so if you hit 6 weeks you've over delivered).

      Gazelle and Harrier will be a nice and useful addition. For the rest don't overload yourself with to much stuff to do or you'll run behind schedule for the rest of year...

      A wait of a few weeks for a Saxon, and rest of stuff, is not a problem.

      Spot on Keith, seems very sensible to me. Gazelle, Lynx and possibly the Harrier, You have really blown my skirt up!!

      As long as my Challengers aren't delayed, the more stuff you can release, the better. Getting tempted by Chieftains too. Good matchup for my 15mm T62s.

      @Keith, I'm up for more being added with a disclaimer, for me 6 weeks extra wait time is fine

      Sounds fine Keith

      The full CVRT family would be amazing, spartan, sampson, samaritan, sultan, and striker. More fv432 varients like the fv434 or the fv432 with fox turret. A bedford MK truck, land rover 101, and a 105mm light gun would be nice.

      Ooh, a Saracen would be really nice to go with the Fox for the TA recce regiments.
