Howes Models
« on: March 06, 2019, 04:13:29 PM »
Every day I have less and less to do at work. There's a plan to outsource my job, with the plan currently at the 'consultation' stage. Though the way things are going, before the consultation period is over my role will have been completely outsourced.

Anyway, this morning I thought I'd bus it up to Kidlington and pickup some Rail Match paints from Howes, rather than order online from Fox. Well, I have all this time on my hands now! It's well over a decade since I visited Howes. So there I was stood outside 12 Banbury Road scratching my head and wondering where the shop was hidden. ??? My phone confirmed that Howes' address was indeed 12 Banbury Road and I was stood outside of that address.

Long story cut short, I eventually found they'd moved to a trading estate on the North edge of town. When I got there I was rather desperate to use the toilet. :uneasy: :-[ So full marks to Howes for letting me use their facilities without hesitation! :thumbsup:

They moved several years back, UK model shops has the current address, so does google and Facebook so I think your phone has let you down big time. :scowl:

My phone is a Nokia 1020 running Windows Phone. Both hardware and software are long since out of support. :headbutt:

Now there’s an idea for a new review section of the forum :-[

Compact but comfortable. Spotlessly clean and fresh smelling thanks to one of those scented-oil-stick-thing air fresheners. A full loo roll and plenty of spares on a shelf. The WC has a good strong flush. Sink with hot and cold running water, and scented hand wash. Would definitely recommend a visit.

You should've mentioned you were going. I could've saved you the head scratching, I live half an hour away and probably pop in twice a year. Their no good for N gauge, but they're okay for bits and bobs.
