Mark Houlding, one of the partners, has an extensive knowledge of the plastic kit industry. Through his guidance, the shop is now one of the largest and most respected stockists of plastic kits in the North of England. Mark's personal hobby has always been model railways, and this experience has proved beneficial when offering advice to customers. The second partner, Liz Whitfield, generally manages the diecast department.
