Last weekend I went to the Isle of Wight for a 40th Ruby anniversary of a friend staying in a hotel in Sandown. To my surprise there was a model shop called Upstairs Downstairs. It was nice to see a model shop for I have not been in one for a long time now. Upstairs there was the railway gear and downstairs the wargame stuff although this was mainly for Warhammer and Airfix kits, but there were many difference types of trees on offer and also grass tuffs of many different colours.
The shop was packed with railway scenery and looking around there were loads of products that I could of purchase. But I did not go away empty handed as I picked up a packet of Metcalfe OO/HOs Cobblestone Builder Sheets, M0051.
There are 8 sheets of the cobblestone sheets in the pack and these are going to be used for the courtyards in my farms and for the town square.If you are going on holiday to the Isle of Wight this summer then take a look at this shop in Pier Street Sandown, between the pier on the seafront and the main high street. If not then look at their website.I hope to go back there again but I must have some cash with me next time.
