I have the box in my hand: it arrived today.
Coates and Shine/HaT. A big box.
This one, actualy:
Unfortunately empty. I ordered a box of HaT Colonials from an online seller & the box was packed inside this one.
On the back are line drawings of 14 figures & 2 horses.
Did HaT actually make this set or am I confused?
April is a bit off yet
I have the box, you sceptic!
Admittedly, I'm surprised that not only was it made but it some how got into non-HaT hands who are using it for packing.
Hat-Twitter: do you want to comment on this phenomenon?
Too bad you're not a box collector Donald, that might be a rarity.
Perhaps the boxes were made but then the set was lost leaving the boxes floating around out there somewhere. I wonder if there's any test shot sprues in the wild?
Hello: Not understood, can you please explain?

The mold for this set is completed but apparently is not in good condition.
There are no plans to make this mold again at this time.
right there in the hat catalogue couldn't be any clearer
there must be something wrong with me because i understand what you asked.
It might help if you shared the name and location of the vendor you purchased the item from.
Can you make a scan or photo of your particular box and post it?
This set has been in limbo for quite some time so any boxes printed for the set must have been stored somewhere for a long time before somehow getting loose into the distribution chain.
The box came via a chap I found on Ebay. He is an Australian vendor.
The box looks exactly like this one:
It has the art work on the front "defaced" with a swirling line from a black marker. The box is also partly covered with brown packing tape.
I figure that it *may* have come from Mr Andy Gorman of New Zealand:
or some one else who got a test box & contents.
Anyway, it's a mystery.
