Thanks for the link! I went to Zinnfiguren this morning, and it's a great shop; certainly better than anything in DC area. I'll check Motag and the rest when time permits.
Thanks!

give the names, locations etc and what each one is like....only been to MOTAG, and its 100 times better than the crap model shop MARCWAY in Sheffield near me
The old woman who owns MOTAG, last time i spoke to her, she was telling me her father was in a Hetzer Panzer in WW2.. she said she was surprised how many brits n yanks loved making models of WW2 esp German stuff

Today I went to Alex Lange - Bundesallee 93, less than a block from Schlossstrasse.
Not a huge shop, but feels spacious enough inside. Great selection of aircraft, armor, ships and figures. I haven't noticed any cars/ bikes. All plastic - no metal or resin figures for example. They carry ModelMaster, Humbrol, Tamiya and Vallejo (Model Color and Model Air) paints; no Gunze. Some books / magazines, some aftermarket PE / resin / decals - not a lot.
Reminded me a lot of Nostalgic Plastic in MD, only had much more ships (plastic), figures (only plastic/vinyl) and much fewer aftermarket sets / decals.
Prices seem high to me, but I've recently moved from the States, and lack point of reference here. For example Hase 190 A-5 w/BMW was 47 Euro. I forgot to check prices of RoG / Italeri - these are typically very expensive in the US. Prices are offset to me by the selection - I haven't seen anything like this in DC area since Nostalgic Plastic closed down few years ago =).

I noticed the kits, are about the same price as in the UK here, what did shock me, is that in Poland, where the normal wage is wayyyyyyyyyy less then UK, and i mean wayyyyyyy less, the plastic i saw, was the same as UK prices.
Not been to that model shop, must pop in next time im there...I do like MOTAG, lots of stuff i cant get in UK, and a pretty decent range of decals, resin and etch..
