Hi used to servise fire alarms all over UK (mainly) East Anglia, and have been in a few oer the years, but they got less and less. The ones that seem to survive, do shop sales and internet, prbabley the only way to survive.

Hi John, train shops are common because of a lot of people buying trains track etc, lot of clubs making layouts. Planes are a different story, expensive and breakable so model shops cater for the most popular buyers, (they spend a lot!!!) boats on the other hand don't usually break, sinking is not usually a permanent problem, so little to replace, so poor sales, no demand. Hope your opp goes well and you can get down to the water again Mark

Today I bought two sheets here in Spain of veneer . Two metres long by 12 inches wide each sheet. Cost was ten euros and I can cut whatever dive I want. That will last till I am well past it.!!

Highly reminiscent of the situation here in Germany 🤔

A good model supplier is in New North Road Hainault.Essex. I buy my wood there but the owner says I am a rarity. Most people want aeroplanes or helicopters ready made.

I have been a model boater since I was nine. I find now that the majority of model shop's NO longer stock model boat thing's. Admitted there are still some that does stock thing's they are few and far between. So what ever yo want has to be got from the internet now. Bearing in mind I am now 67 there are many of my age that do not use the internet and are not computer user's. So this must be very awkward for them.
