Update on the big move + the latest discontinued COBI sets

Update on the big move + the latest discontinued COBI sets

Thank you so much for the wonderful response to my last newsletter about all the changes going on at BrickTanks right now – you made me feel a whole lot better about losing the handwritten notes. It was also lovely to connect with old and new customers alike and I hope I have responded to everyone who hit reply to the email. Unfortunately, we cannot reply to comments left under the post itself, but thank you to everyone who took the time to leave comments and well wishes there as well.

The new warehouse has now started shipping our orders and so far we haven’t had any major issues that I’m aware of – please let me know if you feel otherwise! In addition to using UPS, the new warehouse also uses DPD,
so for anyone who has had issues with UPS in the past, hopefully this will be welcome news.

We have another COBI order on its way full of new and returning sets – see full details below. COBI told us this week that COBI-2542 (T-34/85) and COBI-2973 (Renault FT-17) are both now discontinued, so we wanted to give you a heads up while stocks last. Check out the newly discontinued sets below.

As always, if you have any questions about anything COBI, please get in touch and if we don’t know the answer, we’ll contact COBI for you and see what we can find out.

Wishing you a very good week,


New releases coming on our next order

    Hi Zoe, thanks for all the updates and I’m glad to hear that the transition across to the new working arrangements is all sorted. I know that Cobi has started making tanks in a smaller scale (1/48) as compared to their original scale (I thinl this was 1/35 or thereabouts). While the smaller scale is not of interest to me I’m sure that others will be keen. The only thing is that Cobi use the same packaging so it can be hard to distinguish between the scales/sizes. Is there any way you might consider giving the 1/48 scale their own page in your website?
    Best wishes, Mark
