    i am a model maker and painter in East Grinstead I generally do model railways but I recently became more interested in painting(both brush and air brush) models and model kits
    I have been modeling for a good few years mainly railways ( I was the first heat winner on the great model railway challenge ) This lockdown prompted me to raise my game so I hope to find help and may be some local people who I could get together with

    Welcome Malcolm (sorry). You will doubtless find a lot of support via this platform in whatever you choose to do figure-wise. A friend of mine from way back had a model shop in East Grinstead for a while. I think he sold up and moved back here to Oxfordshire. Not seen him lately. His name was Mark.
