R A Models
Scunthorpe isn't a tourist destination and never will be, but hidden away on a high street five minutes from my home is this little gem! R A models, Ashby high street, Scunthorpe. Now where to start Games Workshop, Airfix, humbrol,paints, brushes and lots and lots of diecast models.
So on to the man himself
just to confuse things he is also called Russ. Don't judge him by his lack of smile! He doesn't like to have his picture taken and I'm pretty much the same. I've said it before I'm old fashioned and I like to know whos getting my money and putting it into a local small family business ticks all the boxes in my book. So a quick look around the shop, and if you don't see it ask about if it can be ordered in.
I like the presence of a local hobby shop, OK Scunthorpe's only a small town and shops are standing empty so it's more important than ever to give these businesses our support! They can't compete with bigger stores and they can't compete with the Internet but they still play an important part of local communities. So one last look in the window
He occasionally gets some really nicely painted stuff for sale in the window. So if you ever find yourself in Scunthorpe drop on by, it's not a specialist shop but its a hobby shop that's well worth a visit. I'm not the best with words but thanks for looking
Cheers for now Russ
