Thanks for the info re the seat woodwork. I returned a part which had a huge knot in it, never had the replacement!
As far as the wheels are concerned, I believe they came from Italy(?) I think this was mentioned in the instructions that came with the kit. A friend of mine who knows his bikes, said they looked like the sort of thing that would be supplied for replacements for vintage motor bikes. Not much help, but perhaps there are other suppliers for suitable wheels.
I've been contacted by the administrator and as far as Modelworks is concerned, they will be in complete lockdown. We can probably kiss goodbye to anything further from them!
There will of course, be quite a lot of stuff held in stock so I imagine this will be auctioned off?
I have also been contacted by Steve Baldock who with Dean (?) - both ex Modelworks designers are trying to form another company concentrating only on the road vehicles side. We'll see.
Just at present, I'm trying to work out what it is that's missing from mine. Quite a bit of fiddly but important bits, but nothing I can't get or make. Though it's always more difficult trying to work back to someone else's design.
I'm just thankful that I've got as far as I have!
