Mark Kessock, the proprietor, has also sent us some background information about himself and the new business.

Let me start at the beginning, I was first drawn into RC by my wife, she bought me a car one Christmas and this let to the usual addiction that we modellers seem to get.

I quickly got into planes, enjoying to fly leisurely stress free things rather than 3D looney tune models, as I get enough stress at home with my four boys.

From there I started to import my own kits from a manufacturer in China but found after shelling out a lot of money, that there are a lot of bad kits coming out of that country, but did eventually come good with one who has given me exclusive rights to his kits. I started to sell a few on Ebay and quickly sold out and from there decided that this was my way forward.

I set up my website after hours of frustration, as I have no training whatsoever with computers, so have fumbled my way through.

Having spent most of my working life working for PLC's as a superstore manager, I have plenty of experience working with and talking to people from all walks of life, and there is nothing I like more than to talk about modelling especially planes.

I used to run Radio Control Zone in Weymouth, and found this to be very successful. However I decided to sell up and emigrate to Spain and take it easy for a while. This was possibly the silliest move I ever made, and it was decided that the schooling was not up to scratch for my boys, so we then returned to the East Midlands.

After working for another PLC for a while as a trouble shooter for problem stores, I realised that I wanted to be my own boss once more.

I decided last year that I wanted to return to my home town of Weymouth, and have pulled all mine and my wife's resources together to be able to open a fairly large model shop. This is due to open the 3rd week of this month, so I still have plenty of stress ahead over the next few weeks.

I will be stocking a very good selection of artf kits for all to choose from, and these include a stunning new Cessna 337 Skymaster which is again exclusive to me in the UK.

If your passing do pop in and see what Mark has to offer, as he always like to put a face to a name!
