MY ATLAS EDITIONS WORLD OF STOBART
To update you on my ongoing saga. I spoke to Atlas Editions again yesterday having still not received the first model which they very helpful lady confirmed I had ordered in May. She further advised me that I had phoned chasing the whereabouts of my models on 4 occasions and every time although recording it on my account, they had failed to process my order. She assured me that she had made the necessary entries on my account and I would definitely get the models this time, starting with the Komatsu Excavator. Unfortunately the orders come from Switzerland so with postage and Christmas I will not receive my first model until January (7 months after I first ordered it). You could not make this up, watch this space I will keep you posted!!

CONFIRMED RELEASE FROM ATLAS EDITIONS
I can confirm that the following model has now been released, albeit with a certificate for Eddie the Engine:
4664106 Scania Oakley Horse Box - Stobart Sport CLICK HERE
This model appears identical to model 4649111 issued in the Eddie Stobart series

STOBART MODELS ON SALE AT EHATTONS

NEW CORGI MODEL ON STOBART SHOP WEBSITE??
The Stobart shop are listing what appears to be a previously unannounced Corgi model on their website. The model is described as:
1:50 Scale Volvo FH with Curtainside Trailer,  Available early 2016. Code: D1601. 84.99. Stobart Members Price: 80.99

I phoned the shop to ask if they could give me any more details about the model but they said they could not until they took delivery of it. From the description and price it appears to be a new Corgi model and no doubt we will see it when Corgi announce their new catalogue for early 2016 later this month/December. Many thanks to Rob Elshof for brining it to my attention.

I have still not received my first model. I phoned Atlas Editions again yesterday to be told that yet again they had not processed my order properly.

Wednesday 4th November 2015


CONFIRMED RELEASE FROM ATLAS EDITIONS
Thanks to everyone who has written to advise me that the 4th model in the World of Stobart series has been released as follows:
4664004
Konecranes Stacker - Stobart Rail
This model appears identical to that released in the first Eddie Stobart collection as model number 4649120 and subsequently Oxford Diecast model 76KRS003

I have still not received the first model (Komatsu Excavator) in this series, it appears that after me phoning to order it nobody processed the order and the mistake was not realised until I phoned up chasing. They then told me it was on order, but again for a second time it was not processed. It is now over 28 days since I phoned last so I will phone again to chase them. I am now getting very fed up with Atlas Editions very poor customer service.

CONFIRMED RELEASE FROM OXFORD DIECAST
