Rather overwhelmed by the lack of model kits, spares and accessories through eTailers or shops with web presence in your country? You won’t be the only one. Recently a search for model shops in South Africa brought up surprisingly few businesses with a web presence although they are there – one just needs to hunt. Of course some of them don’t supply prices or give a solid description either which sort of defeats the object – I like to know what I am paying for and whether it’s a market related price. The USA of course has plenty, why nowhere else? Why such a tedious search? Where can one pick up plans for a container ship, a wooden ship, a freighter, a WW1 or WW2 aircraft. Scale your own, build your own.
