    (with apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson)


    Half a yard, half a yard,

    Half a yard onward

    Straight through the Aldi doors

    Charged the six hundred

    ‘Forward, the Fright Brigade!

    Charge for the shelves!’ he said

    Straight through the Aldi doors

    Barged the six hundred.


    ‘Forward the Fright Brigade!’

    Panic-stricken and dismayed

    Idiots without a clue

    As they plundered

    Theirs not to make reply

    Theirs not to reason why

    Theirs just to BUY! BUY! BUY!

    Right through the Lidl doors

    Crashed the six hundred


    Bog rolls to the right of them

    Pasta to the left of them

    Crowded aisles in front of them

    Pushing and shoving

    Pensioners can go to Hell

    Boldly they snatched as well

    Soup, beans, sanitizer gel

    Charging through Morrisons doors

    Panicked the six hundred


    Flashed all their banknotes bare

    Flashed as they turned to swear

    Wheelchairs ‘Get out of here!’

    Barging an army while

    Those with sense wondered

    Plunging with push and poke

    Straight for the tills to choke

    Sainsbury’s gone up in smoke

    Pillaged and plundered

    Smashing through Tesco’s doors

    The nutcase six hundred


    Coffee to the left of them

    Tea bags to the right of them

    Bare shelves behind them

    Volleyed and thundered

    Storming in panic’s swell

    Onward! they must not dwell

    They that have crushed so well

    Selfish and greedy – sod off the needy!

    While conscience and manners fell

    Trampled the six hundred


    When will their panic fade?

    O the wild charge they made!

    All the world wondered

    Dishonourable, the charge they made

    Dishonourable, the Fright Brigade

    Ignoble six hundred

    Following on from the tremendous success fo the last two SILAS models: the Triumph estate and the Rapier Series V, Frederic has told me that the next two SILAS models will be:


    the Triumph Toledo

    the Vauxhall Cresta PB


    Obviously, these models are not going to appear overnight and will be some months away but if you'd like to order one or both of them contact me ASAP, as numbers will be limited, via phone: 01244 320761 or by email through the site.


    Colours have not yet been decided.


    Regards to all,



  3. ... new Jaguar model, just arrived from SMTS.


    It's a 1987 XJS-C as owned by Princess Diana.


    A beautiful, rare model with a LIMITED EDITION  build of only FIFTY.


    It comes with a numbered certificate.


    You can see it now in the SMTS category of the site.


    Regards to all,


  4. ... Triumph 2000/2500 estates + Sunbeam Rapier Series V are now on sale and can be bought from the 'SILAS MODELS' category.


    Delivery may take a few days longer than normal as there are quite a few pre-orders to pack and post but I'll get the model/s to you as soon as I can.


    Please bear with me.


    Regards to all,



  5. ... there are now two categories for GOLDVARG models on the site.


    The original is for models that are currently available.


    Because of the plethora of new models, in various states of construction and development, I've added a new category 'GOLDVARG MODELS FOR FUTURE RELEASE'.


    Because of the enormous popularity of GOLDVARG models, and their LIMITED EDITION amounts, I'd strongly advise that if there's any particular model/models you want, PRE-ORDER them as soon as you can. You can contact me by phone (01244 320761) or by the site email.


    Although there are a lot of models currently in development, they have a habit of whizzing into production quite quickly because Goldvarg use a number of different manufatcturers, working in tandem.


    Have a look at the new category - there's some crackers coming along!


    Regards to all, 




  6. ... the SILAS MODELS Triumph 2000/2500 Mk II estates and the Sunbeam Series V Rapiers are on the way to me!


    You can see photos of the models on this website in the SILAS MODELS category.


    When they arrive I'll take some BHM photos as well.


    They look beautiful - check them out!


    Pre-orders will be dealt with ASAP.

    Regards to all,
