    Home now but we fancy doing the North Coast 500 next year and I suppose the road to Inverness could go through Broughty Ferry thanks for the heads up, I'll have to make a list.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Just got back after a wonderful time in the Highlands and Islands. Found the Dingwall sports and hobbies David during a shopping run to Inverness. Lovely friendly guy there, think he was chatting the Mrs up while I was l making difficult choices. Ended up with the 72nd Eduard spitfire quattro combo and Brisfit. Process were in the ball park and you just have to support people who put the effort in. Highly recommended.

    Hi, the Mrs and I are currently in sunny Scotland, yes really it's bloody hot out, and I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a retail fix here in the Highlands. On Skye at the mo and moving to Gairloch next week. Tried the world's most used search engine but keeps coming up with railway outlets or shops that have been closed for a while now. Some body help me, I can't go back with nothing

    Greetings from a 'noob'

    Welcome back to the hobby Dave. In a similar situation myself, although without the large stash. Airliners are something I never attempted in my previous modelling career -the thought of decals not lining up with windows just gave me shivers- but I have to admit the colour schemes are something special. Hope you enjoy your new phase too. Nige.

    Ok Rich thats seems a good idea, its just that the stash is a bit limited at the moment and struggling to find anything to fit into a Group Build, which is what I really fancy. The standard wont be up to snuff yet though

    Thanks Steve. And regarding the stash,I just found a guy at a local car boot sale who's bringing a couple of kits a week.:)should be good (bad?) for a bargain.

    Hi, my name is Nige....and I'm an addict. I must be because last year I sold my stash of 350 or so kits that had been in the loft for fifteen years or more in order to realise some funds for a motorcycle restoration.Then one weekend in November I was in Telford on business and saw the signs for SMW. i shouldn't have I know, but I couldn't resist popping in. Fatal error made, my eyes were opened to a new world of modelling and I walked out with some new, that is NEW, kits. What is wrong with me. Luckily I still have my old tools and paints (which have withstood the test of time remarkably well). I just have to see if the old eyes and shaky hands can still produce something worth your attention. Joining Britmodeller was a good move because you guys have a great community and despite the name a wide international member base. The last thing I made was in the nineties before family, work and other more expensive hobbies took the fore. My main interest has always been aviation -I just have to figure out where to start anew... suggestions on the back of a postcard please.
