    Hamex Kit swap and 2018 shows...

    Hi, Our next show will be our our ninth Hamex Kit swap. Featuring the usual mix of kit swappers, a couple of traders, bacon butties and hot tea. Prices the same as usual Kitswap table £5, Trade tables £10. Open from 10:00 until 16:00, but usually closes a little earlier when all the bargains have gone ! Public entry £2 as normal. We have dates for some of our 2018 shows. The post Christmas Model Market, is scheduled for Sunday the 4th Feb 18. We have a new show that takes the date of the old automodellismo show. Media Modelling is for models of anything that has appeared in films, TV, Books, Comics even video games. I've seen club displays in the past with a similar theme, but think it would make a great theme for a model show. Hopefully we can get some outside exhibits for this one as well ! We don't have a date for the extreme weathering show yet. But do have a date for the smallspace show - 1st July 18 Thanks, Paul

    Kolibri - Hand made Synthetic Golden sable Brushes

    Unfortunately there aren't any standards to brush sizes. The numbering systems is the same, but the same numbered brush from different manufacturers can vary in size. I'll add the brush width and lengths to the website shortly, so people know the head size. These brushes all have the same synthetic bristles, so will all be the same softness. I'll have a look and see if what the options for stiffer brushes are. Thanks, Paul
  14. Just arrived yesterday, £2.25 a pot. http://www.modellingtools.co.uk/meng-single-acrylic-paints-385-c.asp Thanks, Paul
