During my stay in the USA, I have become fond of what we then called "dinosaur cars" - the enourmous 1940s-1970s American limousines. Faces only a mother could love. Or me.


I´ve seen several Western Models or Brooklin offerings on eBay, and I see the models, yet I am hesitant to buy off eBay because I know from friends who are into Formula 1 model cars that the really good stuff is rarely sold there (sort of like Model Railroads on German eBay...).


I wonder if anybody here on this forum knows of a hobby shop in the UK where i could obtain these models at reasonable prices. Two things would be imperative for me:

- obviously, the dealer would have to be willing to ship the model(s) to Germany

- I would prefer to pay with either my Mastercard or with my PayPal account.


Mainly, I´d like to get to know some trustworthy dealers that sell my latest drugs... models. I don´t care if this is "Ye olde dusty attic Model Store", or "London´s largest model discount inc."; I would however like to be able to talk to the shopkeeper or -owner on the phone, in case I have any questions about the models I´d like to order. Therefore, they´d have to be tolerant of pidgin English being spoken on the phone...


Thanks for your help!

The model shop I do repairs for, Mclaren Models in Falkirk, Scotland sells them.

They will take mastercard and ship to Germany.

The website is http://www.mclaren-models.com

If you phone, ask for Brian Mclaren.

Cheers

Craig
