Kit-Bashing A Modern Bridge, Hornby Class 87 Review, WWI Convoy, & We Go A Bit Sci-Fi… Plus Our New Site Is Live (Sort of!)
Good Morning <<First Name>>!How’re things? Another week is done… And what a gruelling one it’s been. Some very long hours and a lot of cursing and sighing… but we’ve made some progress. It took a good few days to get all our products on the Scale Model Scenery site categorised and tagged for the product filters. There are still a few that aren’t in the right place but Tina and I were starting to go crosseyed by the time we got near to the end. There’s also still a few products that need their variations adding to them, but I’ll take care of those next week.
So yesterday, we completed the site set up and made the switch over to the new system, and the site is now live! We’re really pleased with the new layout and it’s much much better than the previous one, even from our point of view. But there is a slight snag at the moment… We can’t get PayPal to work as a payment option. It should work, but it’s falling out with the shipping settings. After spending many hours on the phone yesterday it’s being worked on and should be resolved shortly. Trouble is, it’s the weekend and most place support centres are closed until Monday… So it could be a long weekend! Fingers crossed it’ll get resolved though.
So.. (Another so)… for the time being, on the Scale Model Scenery website, please don’t use the PayPal or Braintree options. They’re there at the moment so they can be tested and hopefully fixed over the weekend. That’s the only trouble with being a small business… we’re at the mercy of e-commerce providers and payment processors who will get around to fixing things as and when they can, but we’re far from a high priority, unfortunately.
Anyway… we’re getting there slowly. I just need to take a few deep breaths I think!
Right, let’s get on with some railway stuff then. We start off with some steam action but not on the rails but on the road. Here we join 04Clemea for incredible WW1 Steam Convoy in Dorset. Here’s the video.
Do you feature steam traction engines or military themes on your layout? Send your photos in & we’ll feature them here in the newsletter.
