My Internet miniatures shop now open

It's finally happened, my shop is now open so that I can put my kits out as soon as they are ready.

Find it here:

I am really pleased with how it looks and so far works, but your feedback can only help to make it better and easier to use.

I have added a currency converter to assist overseas buyers and a full shopping cart with Australia Post shipping. There is no  packaging fee in the postage pricing. I hope that all is self explanatory  .

After ongoing discussions with customers/friends I have decided to add wallpapers in 1/48th to my collection. These will be added slowly and ongoing. They are all printed by me on 130gsm hi res paper with pigment inks, so they do not run with water and the colour is stable. These setting I have found suitable and the papers look good, I hope you will agree. At this stage I will primarily be doing papers to suit my house styles but this will grow in the future. All sheets a A4 and will come with 4 prints 67mm high  x 201mm wide,( 2' 7/8" x 7' 15/16" ) more than enough to do one room a sheet and possibly 2. Pricing is $2.50 a sheet.

I will also shortly be adding options like a lighting kit for the Queenslander and alternative options for various kits.

Tonia's Painted Lady

Thanks to Tonia in Queensland for supplying some photos of her Painted Lady. She was also the first in line in Brisbane to buy a "Queenslander" Kit which I know she will enjoy building.

Please enjoy looking at her photos

Thanks Tonia for sharing

Returning from Brisbane with a new Energy

My wife Elizabeth and I have just returned from Queensland where we were traders at the 1st Brisbane Miniatures and Dollhouse Extravaganza. The show went very well for us and people really seemed to enjoy what we had to show and sell and we really enjoyed the feedback and talking with other Traders and participants.

Thanks to Julie and Patron Richard and all those that were able to support this new show. We were told that it will be back on next year and we will be returning. With more time now and having the basics done I know that Julie will provide an even better show for next year.

While at the show I was able to meet with a couple of people who have previously purchased kits and was able to get some photos from Tonia which will go in the next posting.

While in Brisbane we stayed with Kim and Mac and Jag the Doberman. Thanks for your hospitality and friendship. We are looking forward to catching up at Sydney. While staying with Kim we had a bit of a workshop on using shellac as a sealer and from that I feel I need to do another post about the correct use and the wonder of shellac as a sealer.
