Scale Models new website

Scale Models have completely updated their website. Actually, calling it an update is underplaying it, as it’s all completely new from the ground up. The new site is a massive upgrade, and it’s great to see Mark and Julie providing an even better service for us all. The new website includes a shop featuring all the latest products, it looks good and works well, so what more could you want?

Special Feature

In our special feature this week we’re going to take a look at the artisan makers in the hobby, the smaller scale producers that can provide you with those important items which might be a bit off the beaten track…

You can always find most of these makers, and other essential links, over in Slotcar Alley, our dedicated section for the best online sites that the slot car world has to offer.

If you know of any more small scale producers that deserve to be on our list, then please let us know on the Forum, and we’ll make sure to include them in future.

MRE website and slot cars

UK slot car retailer MRE have extended their Club Price Discount scheme to members of SlotRacer Online – offering a 15% discount off the RRP of cars, spares and accessories on the MRE website: www.mre.co.uk

How does the discount work? On each product listing there are three prices available – a standard MRE Mail Price, the Club Price and a Star Price. The Club Price gives 15% discount on the RRP. This is extended to 20% by spending £500 in the previous 12 months. Full details are here: www.mre.co.uk/about_us/pricing

The example above shows the RRP and three price points for the 1/24 scale Carrera Pink Pig Porsche 911 RSR.

How do I register for the Club Price Discount? When you register for an MRE account, you’ll be able to add your SlotRacer Online membership details. The MRE team will then verify you are an active member here and unlock the Club Price discount.

It’s as easy as that.

A very big thank you to Gary at MRE for adding SlotRacer Online to the MRE Club Price Discount scheme
