We're desperately seeking more Swapmeet Spies so we can expand our geographical toyfair coverage in Model Collector magazine.

This involves taking an overall shot of the inside of the venue, and providing basic details of the venue address, opening times, admission costs, number of stalls, facilities available (e.g. On site parking and refreshments) and a brief paragraph on your overall impression of the event. We will also require six to eight pictures of items of interest you spot on various stalls, along with the asking price and a very brief description of the model in question (i.e. the model's manufacturer, vehicle identification, model reference number, scale, approx year of manufacture - if in doubt a decade will do - and any other details/comments you're able to provide).

And we'll pay £50 for every report published, which could perhaps help fund a new addition for your collection.

So, if you attend the occasional swapmeet, own a digital camera and feel you could cover a local event, please email lindsey.amrani@myhobbystore.com.
