UPDATED OCTOBER 2019
Now, remember as a kid, the excitement of going along to your very own local model shop in order to splash out your pocket money on what was then the latest Airfix or Tamiya kit?
Or, if you're Dugald or Alf, buying a lump of balsa in order to carve out something to resemble a Spitfire?
Nowadays, unless you live in either Edinburgh or Glasgow, it means that you either have to get on the internet and make an order (from a promotional photo) or wait for a show to come round in order to get your mitts on a lovely box o' plastic.
So, anyway, there's been a bit of fantastic news on the IPMS Dundee front:
THERE'S A BRAND-NEW MODEL SHOP RIGHT HERE IN DUNDEE!!!!
RIF-RAF Models has opened its doors at 129 Albert Street, DD4 6PR and can be contacted on 01382 760313.
Not only kits from the likes of Airfix, Revell, Tamiya, AFV Club, Eduard, Dragon, Bronco and Trumpeter but also aftermarket accessories, paint, glues, fillers and tools!
The kettle is always on so drop in for a brew, a chat and relieve your wallet or credit card of that horrible excess weight!

How often do we see a new 'bricks and mortar' model shop opening up these days? Not very often!
Please give the shop your support and visit this lovely wee shop as soon and as often as possible
