Hi John I been looking through the Vallejo range and like the 6/8 bottle kits that are out there with the guides on how to achieve certain looks.
Recently I got val waffen SS uniforms and also Panzer ace Late war German vehicles ( both are superb )
Now I'm looking for British tanks of WW2 as I have a 1/35 Cromwell and a Centaur to paint. I see the kit on evilbay 78407 AV but can't see the same on here, can you help, would be nice to get the 6/8 plus guide
Being new I have only just seen this thread. For years I have bought all my model rail from Germany. Now having gone back to making Airfix type kits I have been buying from a firm called Emodels. Reason why is that they stock almost everything but most important is they use DPD as their courier. This courier has tracking that will tell me not only the day or hour but within five minutes when my parcel will arrive which means I dont have to spend most of a day waiting on Parcelforce or others. Now if John used them I would not hesitate to buy from him as I find this site most useful and our members having nothing but praise for Scalemodels.
What do you mean elsewhere? John has everything in stock!
Seriously though, SMS is amazing, especially when it comes to accessories and tools. The only reason I don't buy everything from here is because buying from the small amount of local shops here is of course cheaper due to postage.
But really this is an example of an excellent shop. Everything is easy to find and presented well. When I think I'm done shopping I find things I didn't even know I need. :P
John's been busy posting boxes every week or two to Slovenia. :D
I bought a few models off eBay, only because they were impassable deals. I've ordered paint and models from John, and have to say the packaging was good, no problems with things getting broken, and the speed of delivery was excellent. The range of paint and weathering items is huge, but there's always going to be that one certain thing not listed. However, I didn't know (thank you for telling us John) that you can get unlisted things as well! Handy to know, as I'll ask in future before going elsewhere.
I'm relatively new to modelling, but the bug has bitten and as I'm going nowhere for a good few years, I'm here to stay. So Johns shop will be a daily visit!
I'm more than happy to get things to order, I wish I could stock everything that everyone wanted but that's impossible, I'm expanding again this month because I've out grown where I am, again, that will give me 1600sq ft of storage, so will be able to start getting more stuff
Your a superb service everytime i use u can I get things to order then..I have wish list on amazon that keeps all the items I want from different shops and my wife just cleans the the list out..so if I send u the list could u please tell me if u can get the items would rather use u than a Chinese or European country
