Very very nice. I wish I were a wee bit closer though.
Be an awfully long trip to get there. But I would get a boat ride or airplane ride in.

Yes! One on each coast would be preferable

Very brave move by Deans Marine to expand the facility in a decreasing market. Even with "T'internet" sales and the lack of interest shown by todays youf, specialised suppliers are few and far between. Local model shops became a casualty of the model "Supermarkets" we saw advertised in publications like RCM when a few suppliers on the RHS of "The Pond" decided to get in on the act in the seventies.

Use it or loose it was (still is) the watchword, but it's up to us to beat the cr*p out of todays kids to use their fingers for more than killing clusters of pixels and instant gratification, although we tend to press a few buttons and complain when the latest object of our desires doesn't land on the doormat next day.

Power to yer elbow Ron.

Regards Ian.

That would be so nice just place your model on the counter top and see what would fit...or the fella on the other side of the counter say " we just got this in ...try this"
