BOLTON'S BITS 7mm SCALE SIGNALS, HELPING TO RESTORE BOLTON TRANSPORT 122

FOR SALE!

I intend to add a small range of etched parts for the signal scratchbuilder. They will be all parts from which I build my signals and will require the use of folding and riveting tools as necessary. As they are basically just bits for me to use for building my customers signals, it is unlikely that there will be instructions!

The range is currently under development so please keep an eye on the website for regular updates as they occur.

There may also be ready built signals for sale from time to time.

PLEASE NOTE DUE TO INCREASING POSTAL CHARGES, ALL ITEMS PREVIOUSLY SHOWN AS INCLUDING POST AND PACKING IN THE PRICE ARE NOW SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL P&P.
