Dawn , St.Helens, Merseyside. - 11 Jul 2018 - Four Stars
It's always great to see a new model shop opening, especially one near to you. The guy who openeditast year is friendly, chatty, willing to discuss any type of model making and essays and is open to a good deal. It's not the biggest place around but it's certainly packed to the rafters with a fantastic selection of various brands of paints, glued, modeling materials etc. If he doesn't have it on the spot he's happy to search something out and order stuff in ( Within reason of course !). I have been quite a few times now and he has remembered what I am doing, what scale I work in, what I boughtast time, and always shows .E anything that's new in that may be relevant to what I am doing. This is a warm, friendly shop with a knowledgeable owner who goes that little bit further than others. He shuts at 4.30p.M. But if your already in the place he doesn't chase you out. Well worth a visit if your anywhere near the area or even making a special trip.
