Hello everybody. Just to let you know that Gateshead Toy Fair is being held on Saturday 17th June at Gateshead International Stadium, Tyne & Wear, UK. I'm not the show's organiser but I will be trading there. Hope to see you on the day!

Good luck with this. These events are useful sources for bargains for 20mm and 28mm gamers. Lots of former part work models available at reasonable prices. Also stuff like Lledo and Matchbox Models of Yesteryear for VDCW and gangsters.

I'll be selling a bit of everything that's on the card I put in the opening post and that includes 20mm and 28mm models plus other scales.

As for diecasts about one third to half of the stalls (including my own) sell them so it could be worth a look if they're something you're after. You get quite a few military vehicles there too, not just cars and lorries. grin

Just to mention, it's Durham Wargames Groups show/open day on the weekend between your 2 show appearances. Not sure if there's any space left, but it might be worth contacting the show secretary at durhamwargames.co.uk

Thanks for the advice. I contacted them last year but unfortunately for me they're full up for now.
