Great News for Customers of Williams Brothers Model Products!
2010- Was the
50th anniversary of the Williams
Brothers product line, whose company was founded in 1960!! We
continue our efforts to bring the 18 model aircraft kits, and
4 detailed engine kits, back to production. We hope to accomplish
that this year if all goes to plan. From there, we have some new
products we're working on and hope to see this year as well.
We sure do appreciate all of those who stuck
by us in the early days of our entry to this product line, and
we are happy to be able to supply our customers with the products
they need. We continue to work hard and strive to keep this
product line alive and well and Made in the USA.
back to full swing!!
We have been working hard to catch up on production and have made LOT of parts the past few months. 99+% of the backorders are now wiped out, and our focus is to keep up with the orders, and actually to pull ahead and have a build up of inventory once again. Our goal is fast fill and 100% complete!!
10/18/11- NEW PRODUCT! SpitFire Wheels!!
In working with DB Sport & Scale in Wales, we have developed a new wheel that takes Williams Brothers beyond the Golden Age, and into WWII. The new wheel is based on the British 4 spoke design, and should work well within the realm of approximate 1/5 scale aircraft, although not limited to that. It has a two piece hub design that allows for a hidden wheel collar to hold them on, and a pair should easily support a 30lb model. What can we say- it's hard to beat a hollow rubber tire for performance and weight.
Specs: 4-3/4" diameter; axle- 3/16" diameter (can be drilled to 1/4"), Hub Diameter- 2"; Tire width- 1-1/2", Weight- <13oz per pair.
Part Number 19400, MSRP = $74.95/pair.
4/27/12-The 1/3 Scale Vintage Wheel
We are pretty much out of the trenches and on the way! This project has taken a lot of effort on all fronts, and is a trail-blazer for sure. If your a pre-order customer, we send out updates on our progress in more detail. But, in short for here, we have a tyre mold complete and are now about to launch the molds for the Palmer and Fokker wheels! Our newly added machine is now with power and waitng for some adapter plates, and it'll be ready to start production.
For those not aware of this project, we are also asking for your support in a pre-buy program to get this project done. Molds are quite the expense to make, and in order for little guys like us to build up the needed funds quicker, we are offering the chance to buy them at a reduced price. The first wave was very much responisble for getting this project off the ground, and we greatly appreciate the support pre-buyers gave us!! The wheels will List at $99.95/pair when they go into production. However, we will take a pre-buy order (payment is made on receipt of order) for $69.95/pair. This offer will continue until the first wheel rolls off the assembly line!
10/18/11- The Lost Electra is Back!
Due to popular demand, we have made another production run of The Lost Electra kit. So, if you missed out the first time around, here's your 2nd chance. And, yes, we were able to secure another group of original 1963 Amelia Earhart Air Mail Stamps to include with the kit. That is a limited out-of-production item that we can't control, so grab one while you can! Explore one of the most amazing challenges in flight history by one of Aviation's greatest figures.
4/27/12- The Le Rhone engine kit starts another run!
We have had to produce a second run of the 1/6 Le Rhone kit due to popular demand. If you saw a slight delay in your order for that item from your favorite dealer, that is probably why!
4/27/12- The Caudron and Firecracker are in Line!
We have begun the re-issue process for the Caudron and Schoenfeldt Firecracker kits, so decals and boxes will be ordered shortly and production will begin by Mid-May. Both are interesting and exciting kits as we have seen full scale reproductions of both aircraft appear in the last couple of years!
4/27/12- What about the B-10 and Laird?
Both the Laird Super Solution and B-10 are now in the works. Decal designs are almost complete and box designs are in the works. If all goes well, they will be following the Caudron and Firecracker in production this year!
