So, the latest from Royal Mail as far as sending overseas parcels goes is … err … no change. Although there is some light at the end of the tunnel as RM have started accepting overseas letters again (anything without a customs declaration) so the system is beginning to move at last. We’ll keep you posted…
To end the week we have a pair of contrasting hotels in our 1/1000th (2mm) Small Scale Scenery range, both based on ones around the Brigade HQ in Maidstone, and both sculpted by Phil. The first we’ve designated a Modern Courtyard Hotel – it’s a large modern brick-built building based around a central open area. Every decent sized town has at least one like this on the outskirts, used as a venue for business conferences and weddings.
The second is more modest – we’ve called it the Town Centre Budget Hotel. It belongs to a hotel chain that specialises in cheap and cheerful stays with a clean bed, bathroom and no frills, but at a sensible price. Exactly the sort of place we use when going to shows. This one has an unusual design, and an interesting colour scheme to boot.
SSS-8198 – Modern Courtyard Hotel – £4.00
SSS-8199 – Town Centre Budget Hotel – £1.50
