We didn't want to keep you waiting any longer, so we're opening the doors early, so you can get to know us and see what we've got in store.

It's been countless months in the making, taking us longer than expected, but we're really excited with the store and can't wait to invite you in.

We've got lots of great products in store now, but there'll be lots and lots and lots of new products added over the coming days and weeks; plus we're awaiting some amazing products from manufacturers that we're sure you'll really love.

Our official launch will be announced shortly, but it's just round the corner. Until then, there's still time to sign up to our newsletter and be automatically entered into the launch prize draw.

We'd love to get your feedback, suggestions and wish lists, so get in touch with us with your thoughts.

We're a really small British business with big ambitions, give us a chance and we'll definitely win you over!

Product Highlights

Finally, just to get you started, some highlights of whats in store right now:

If you're into modelling, art installations or just love to work with light, you'll love our line of plastic fibre optic light guides available in 2mm, 0.75mm and a 64x 0.265 bundle. These light guides or "pipes", let you channel light from one place to another; whether lighting up windows on a model space craft, gantry lights on your OO layout or sensing light in remote places, this fibre is safe to work with, easy to cut and unlike glass fibre, resistant to shock and bending.

Finally, we've got lots of enclosures, ideal for any project and budget, from hand held cases to small outdoor enclosures or even our metal electronics enclosures. We'll be adding even more over coming months, including small enclosures for Arduino and Raspberry Pi and larger enclosures for housing bulky projects (like robotics controllers or model rail DCC boards).
