Kitbasher  a simple answer would be "full of kits"    its packed floor to ceiling, plenty of scales, manufacturers, and subjects, plus paint ( 4 possibly 5 types maybe more) plastruct, decals, aftermarket parts, and if they haven't got it in, theyre very good at getting it.   My one warning is if you suffer claustrophobia, it may be a store you visit, and ask for stuff from the door way.  It is my "go to" for things as they are released, and they have a extensive selection of older boxes
the café between it and the railway / tram station is top notch as well, the prices are low, the plates are full, and theve won multiple awards for the quality  :thumbsup:

Chris,  The closest station is Jewellery Quarter  ( either Tram or BR main line)   as you come out of the station, turn Left, and  its a couple of hundred yards along the road,   (  google maps attachment  https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Parabellumn/@52.4909727,-1.9114167,127m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0000000000000000:0xa446eee0e5d5240b!6m1!1e1?hl=en  )  on the same side as the station,   hope it helps.  :thumbsup:
I will add there  open Thursday  Friday Saturday   11:00  -  17:30  so be aware of which day you intend to visit

From my eldest daughter (not the RAF's Best Air Traffic etc etc.) for my birthday (today.......... ;D :lol:, the Revell British Legends gift set, containing a BI/III Lancaster, a Hurricane IIc and a Spitfire Vb, all in 1/72.

I'm most impressed by the Lanc, I've never looked at the Revell one that closely before, but it has lots of detail and it's nicely moulded without the mega complications of the Airfix kit.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

From Santa.

To be built with a scratched sleeper box behind the cab and (If I ever finish it) a Meng D9 dozer on the float.  Zenrat Industries colours.

However my immediate building time is being taken up by a HUUUUUGE Lego TIE fighter.
