Dave Bodley of Grand Manner has recently announced that he is retiring and that final orders for his painted resin buildings will be early next month. For full details see this link.
I first met Dave some twenty years ago at a shop in Evesham and have been lucky enough to both work with him and meet up socially. I consider him a friend as well as a colleague. I wish him all the very best for his well earned retirement.
A great loss for the hobby but I hope he has a great retirement. Fortunately I have a small collection of his superbly crafted and beautifully painted buildings that will see me out.
Unfortunately I think we will see more companies go under. Not because of retirement either.
