JAYS - Latest News
*Product Clarifications (25/02/22)*
We recently released three new Tasman Accessory products for the RB51 Mustang. Since the release we learned that these products are suitable for all P-51 Mustangs as well, so have corrected the packaging and item descriptions to reflect this.
*Price Alert (23/01/22)*
Falcon Industries, our supplier of their Cleavax and Squadron products, have informed us they are raising their prices due to an increase in material costs. This will result in an increase of 17% in shop prices. The change will take affect on the 1st February.
*Denizen Plus Christmas Sale (16/11/21)*
Our early Christmas Sale is now on to help beat the last postal days for Christmas. Many items on sale, Canopies, Clearvax, Frei Korp, Model Kit Accessories, plus a number of other single items. Also, today, we launch our stock of Denizen metal miniatures.
*Denizen Miniatures Arriving Soon (28/10/21)*
I know table top gaming is a bit of a departure for us and I realise that these products won't be of interest to many. But it's tough out there right now and we need to broaden our scope in order to survive. Besides, gaming is a hobby and some of the products under this category could be incorporated into modelling. So we are pleased to announce that we will soon be stocking a range of metal miniatures produced by Denizen. I hope these products will appeal to some of you.
*Postal Rates Rise (01/10/21)*
We discovered the hard way that New Zealand Post introduced new rates that seem to affect all overseas shipping. We have amended all shipping rates to reflect the change, but there is some good news.
The reason for the rate rise is because they have now added tracking to each shipment. You will be able to find your tracking number on your PayPal statement, and we will send you a link via email, so you can track your order through the NZPost website. Thanks NZ Post!
*Clearvax set 56 On It's Way (11/02/21)*
It has been a long time coming but there is a new canopy set being released by Falcon Industries. Clearvax Set 56, entitled Luftwaffe Part 6, will feature canopies for Do.17Z, Me.262A, Bf109 and Bf110 for a number of various kits including ICM, Tamiya and HobbyBoss.
We hope to have this new set of canopies in stock by mid February.
*Website Upgrades (07/12/20)*
JAYS Hobby Products website has gone through some changes. As you may have noticed the visual aspect of the site has changed a little due to the upgrading of the ZenCart template. There has also been some tweaks behind the scenes which may have caused a few minor issues to begin with. But most of the kinks have been ironed out now and we are bang up to date.
We apologise to any customers who have been inconvenienced during this process, but it was a necessary process which was long overdue. The last issue to be corrected is the appearance of some text on Android devices. It seems black is white according to Android, which is causing some text to be difficult to read. Hopefully this will be corrected shortly.
*New Wirraway Kit (03/08/20)*
JAYS Model Kits adds a new kit to its range, JY0120 Commonwealth Wirraway and features four decal schemes that includes air force and civil and a bonus decal featuring additional RAAF serial options. We have limited numbers for now but hope to get some more kits produced as soon as parts become available.
*All in a Spin (06/06/20)*
With the recent acquisition of a metal spin caster we are excited to announce that we will be adding the Frei Korps line of products to our store over the coming weeks. We also hope to increase our Tasman and JAYS accessory range as well. There is a lot of work ahead cataloging the new stock and creating new products. Plenty to look forward to.
*JY0117 Kit Released (07/03/20)*
The second of three kits has been released, JY0117 Spitfire Mk.IX High Altitude and features markings for RAF and RAAF. Also included are Spitfire Mk.VIII markings and kit parts to convert the kit to this variant. Decals have been remastered by Old Models Decals here in NZ. Next planned kit release will be JY0118 Spitfire Mk.XI.
