News for June 2020.


Hello everyone here is my news for June 2020.


We have been very busy over the last 3months or so. We have found our place to finally set up a business here in Spain.


We are in Purias near Lorca in a Rural Casa. We have 90,000 sq mtrs of land to manage and a house. The house will become "Hotel Rural El Molino". We have 5 suites and 2 rooms with a shared bathroom. The house is on the site of the old flour mill and the ruined building still exists.

We have alot of work to do converting rooms and adding a bar and kitchen area. The coronovirus restrictions have held us up.

Our website is being designed as we speak and should be published very soon.


Here are a couple of images.




We have 2 cannons in the grounds also.




As I said in December our wonderful apartment is on the market. We have it with Sun Estates in Villamartin have a look. www.sunestatesspain.com


It is 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment on a great urbanisation Pinada Golf 2 close to Villamartin (Torrevieja).

If any one wants to make offer looking for €79,000 good price.




All my modelling accessories and kits are still in storage in UK waiting for us to be able to transport to our permanent home here in Spain.

However my work in progress page shows what I have on the go. The link to my page is here.



My finished work is shown on my gallery page......




I have been updating my show and events pages and many 2020 show dates  have been announced now and added.


Lots of cancellations and postponed dates for many shows throughout the world due to this Corona Virus Pandemic. Many venus and event organisers having to make major changes to acomodate shows.


Please please make sure you contact organisers of shows before you travel to your favourite one. Last minute changes can happen. I will try now to keep up to date.


As I am in Spain and intend looking to stay I have a separate page for shows in Spain.

There are links to pages where the listing of  the shows and events that I know and can verify.

Please keep looking often, as I add them as and when I can verify the dates.


The link is here:-  http://modelminiatures.com/events-and-shows

I keep spending alot of time catching up on Facebook with the many friends and groups I have joined, much to my dear wife's annoyance. There is always wonderful work displayed on the many pages and cannot believe how many great modellers there are out there. This lockdown period during the last few months has also brought out some wonderful work and stash reduction!!!

Please remember if you are visiting a favourite show please make sure you check information before travelling.

Please contact me through the contact page I will always welcome photos or event news to add to my website.

Please keep looking in from time to time and I wish you many happy hours making that favourite scale model.


Thank you.

Pete and Sol.
