We'll be Back Soon!

Current status of Five79 Kits.


I produce the kits in my spare time and I only manufacture when time permits, throughout the week I have a full time job. They say the grass is greener on the other side, well in my case that wasn’t true, I took a new full time job and it has just slowly taken up most of my time and something had to give, unfortunately this was the model kits. 


Until recently I have done my best to keep a supply of kits going to Andrew at Dundas Models (formerly Parkside Dundas), but I find myself being swallowed up in the mountain of work I have to do and my full time job has put a lot of pressure on not just me but my family. I have had to prioritise what is the most important at this current time, my Family.


We have come up with a plan of action which best suits us and the manufacture of the Five79 range.




Our aim is for us to have kits rolling out and back up to near full production by the end of the first quarter of 2018. Not all kits will return straight away as we plan to do some re-moulding of some of the lesser quality white metal kits, which will speed up production and quality at the same time.


One of the biggest changes we hope to implement in 2018, is direct sales! We are going to overhaul the website and make the ability to purchase direct from us.


I hope this clears some of the issues up, and we look forward to seeing you all soon,


All the very best,
Matt Chivers.
