This is me.
I am the owner of Galactic Models. I have been modeling since I was 7 and since then done OO and N-gauge layouts, Plastic kits in all scales mainly Sci-Fi, I have a collection of Die-cast VW Camper vans and classic Minis, I have also ran my own Slot racing club and have lots of slot cars in my collection, and I play a variety of table top games.
I started in the model/hobby business with a company called TMC (The Model Center) in Nottingham which was then brought out by Modelzone where I became a manager of 3 Stores in the Midlands, and I have been a area manager of 15 stores and was with Modelzone until the company stop trading.
I wanted to start up on my own and Galactic Models was born.
I opened a shop in May 2014 located in the Cathedral Quarter of Derby city center at
4 The Strand Arcade, The Strand, Derby, DE1 1BQ where i traded for 3 years then due to high costs i had to make the decision to close the shop on the 20th May 2017 and move online and attend shows.
I am hoping to re open a store in the future but for now its time to refocus the business and restock.
