New E-mail address


The problems with my original e-mail address continue, my Web Master is in Canada and the server in California, I have not been able to contact either since this problem started on 26.12.20.

I have set up a new e-mail address at

This is live and working, I hope in due course to get the .net address back up and running and run both side by side, but I have no idea if this will come to pass, or indeed when.

My apologies to anyone who has tried to get in touch, but received no reply, please try again with the new address.

ModelEarth remains open for business and we are as keen as ever to sell you things 🙂

If anyone is in touch with Ferd Mels I would be grateful if you would let him know I am trying to contact him
