445 Models

When we moved to Gosport, there was an excellent model shop on Stokes Road. It catered for every flavour of modeller that you might care to list. Sadly, it closed down a couple of years ago.

There is another model shop on Stokes Road, this owner doesn’t give the same impression as the first shop. That was brightly lit and well laid out and very well stocked.

The second shop is different, I have to admit that I have avoided the shop on the assumption that it was a gamers shop, and that there would be little of interest to me. The shop has a run down look to its window display second hand models, scratched and in poor condition.

Yesterday, I went in to the shop. I reckon I spent about twenty minutes browsing. I think a lot of it is second hand – that doesn’t bother me at all. I will go back. He has three boxes of matchbox toys (see the header picture), he’s selling them for 50p each. I could easily have spent a couple of pounds on each at Amazon, I bought a few of them – it was an easy win as far as I am concerned. Now the photo above isn’t veery good, there’s no context to the model. I need to build a diorama, it can be part of the railway layout. That is as work in progress. I have the N-Gauge figures I’m going see if they fit in.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
