    No I do not currently volunteer
    Two struggling retailers trying to share their customers? I thought ModelZone had gone into administration.

    Personally, I don't see *much* overlap between the two in terms of their customers.

    It would be useful if it spread nation wide, I bet I'm not the only one suffering from a lack of model shops.

    Struggling to get Humbrol Paint in South West Wales without having to pay postage, although where I'm living now for a while is pretty well served. Interesting concept, though.
