Starting shortly, MEWS will have a new service for readers. It is an auction feature for all things model engineering.

For now, it will be absolutely free to buyers and sellers, but that might have to change if it should get too busy.

What’s to do? Send us a brief description and picture, if you have one, your minimum acceptable bid, and cost of UK postage/delivery. Items will be listed for two weeks. Sellers will then be given details of the successful bidder. To keep things simple these are ‘Dutch’ auctions, the winner being the highest bidder before the deadline.
