I've been unable to load their website. Is it me or have they gone to the Great Website in the Sky like so many others? I hope it's me that's the problem

I can't load it either, maybe just a server problem They were trading normally at Sandown a week or so ago.

Best try again later.

We are reliably informed that John has decided to retire and that James has no plans to continue the business on his own. We will miss the 'Poll Trolls' at the shows and would like to to pass on our good wishes to both for the future.

I think you'll find Model power has ceased trading and the business is thus no more.

I usually get my new batteries etc from these guys at the Annual boat and engineering shows. They have always been helpful on their stands and will be sorely missed. <:(

However, looking on the bright side, there's an opening there for somebody....

Best wishes to them both.

Regards,

Ray.

I would like to second the above. From all in the Portsmouth model boat Display Team, cheers for putting up with us over the years, and helping us out with our stranger projects. Good luck for the future :-)) :-)) :-))

Just wondering, " Model power" This is the company that stopped trading ?, just noticed using the sponsors link for Model Power at the top of Mayhem that it now directs you to a Company called Vapex Tech, did they take over ?.
