Bill Bedford Parts

Bill Bedford has an extensive S Scale Catalogue of kits which can be produced to order directly from Bill (not via the SSMRS). Bill aims for a 6-8 week production cycle, but this can be extended if for instance he cannot fill particular sheets of if he gets sidetracked by other work. Delivery times are minimum of 4 weeks though 12 weeks is more typical. If delivery could be a problem it is best to check with him before ordering.
