Hey all, I have been lurking around here for quite some time. I've posted before but real life and work just kept my bench time at bay. Hopefully now I may have some time for myself - or at least I'm pretty determined to make it so ... Tempus Fugit on many levels in seems! I hadn't meant to open this thread so soon, but I've been struggling to get an answer for the most basic of questions (well I think it is)? My see me out project is that of the HMS Victory, in this instance the Heller 1/100th scale version, lots of reasons, both for the subject and for the medium - non of which I shall bore you with right now. Suffice to say I'm trying to be very grown up about this project? I have in fact had the kit itself for over a year now ............................. As proof of honest intentions.................... and to show those who've never seen the box - it's a whopper!!! Now most importantly, I have procured a bag of those little plastic fellows - just because I think they're great and add a fun twist ... (this is not going to be a museum piece build). It took me over a year but I finally managed to justify the cost and reasoning to purchase a set of Daniels etch sheets - so far telling myself that I'm supposed to be a modeller ergo I resisted the resin - this may have been a mistake ... we'll see? In a fit of excited anticipation I made these ............ as yet unproven and unbloodied - not strictly true as I managed to injure myself during the cutting out of the frames! oopsey .... soz! I didn't think they'd take up so much room in the thread - but you can see 'em? I've just ordered some weird special scissors - "Dental Castroviejo Noyes Spring Suture Scissors Curved". I have it on the best authority these are the dogs when it comes to rigging, plus it was he that told me to buy them (just a fiver). Anyhoo .................... all this brings me to the question!!!? ............. where in the UK ('tis where I am located) is the best place - both price and service are a consideration, .................... to source aftermarket items such as Thread, Ropes, Dead-eyes, Blocks and general model accessories such that I may need?? - Pretty please - and thanks. KBO ... Andi.
