Hi Everyone,

Joined yesterday, modelling in OO gauge, living and working in Macau, China.
No layout as yet just lots of bits in crates and box's, had two layouts when living in Scotland, one in the garage on pullies so that I could still get the car in and one in an 8 x 6 shed in the garden.
Looking forward to sharing info with everybody.

regards

Dick

Hello Dick and welcome to the forum. I hope you haven't eaten a funny whelk!

What sort of space do you have for a layout? Not many gardens or garages in Macau!

We have had some reports of model shops in China. What are things like where you are? Or are you buying by mail-order?

No model railway shops in Macau, have not found any good ones in Hong Kong, Zuhai or Guangxhou, but will keep looking.
As you said I do everything by mail order.

No space at all, restricted to making kits at the moment.

Hi Dick and welcome.

A friendlier source of model rail info would be hard to find.

Any questions just fire away - you'll normally get an answer fairly quickly.

Sorry not Scottish, just never managed to get back down south after leaving the Fleet Air Arm at Lossiemouth, Moray. Went and worked on Helicopters in Aberdeen, then the Middle East and now Macau, China. Will get back to England one day, hopefully.
Yes everything done by mail order.

No worries Dick, we can't all be that lucky.
I'm aiming to get back to Scotland at some point so I know where you';re coming from.

Hi Dick and welcome to the MRF.

I am presently based in Dubai but plan to retire to Guilin in a couple of years so, like yourself, I am in the planning, equipment purchasing, kit building and general preparation stage with virtually all of my purchases being made on line.

I spent several years in Hong Kong and, having also investigated Guangzhou I can verify that there are no model railway shops in either place. I think the nearest one is in Shanghai but haven't managed to pin down its exact location yet.

I think you will find everyone here a very friendly and knowledgeable bunch who are always willing to help out lesser mortals, such as myself, who find ourselves up against a brick wall from time to time.

Happy modelliing,

Expat.
