Had the great pleasure of visiting the shop yesterday, to buy some Humbrol paint to repair a broken ornament. A delight to chat with the two gents behind the counter. I haven't made models for more than 40 years, but with such an extensive selection of kits on offer in the shop, I'm thinking of starting up again.

I have been getting back into model railways since February & have been working on my layout ever since with great enthusiasm, I buy a lot of my Hornby items from mankim, the people that run it are very friendly & helpful, they have some really good bargain prices on second hand locomotives, wagons, etc, of which I have bought a few myself, of course. They even have a superb repair facility & have done a magnificent job recently of mending 2 of my loco models, I shop there every month, excellent shop, I would'nt go anywhere else, plus they're a nice independent local business, so it is within driving distance for me of about 15mins tops, highly recommended for anyone like myself who has rediscovered model railways.

Went there today (12 April 2014) and the two chaps who served me were perfect gentlemen, kind, willing, and well-informed. The shop is packed full of a wide variety of models, and other things like card, pencils, humbrol paints and brushes, and a lot more. Very pleased with everything about this shop, I can't fault it in any way. I'm simply a customer with no 'interests' in the business whatsoever.
