Modelmatic has been set up by Jon Irvine, owner of a web design agency and father of three kids.
Why I started it
For a few reasons:
- I found it difficult finding a good range of new diecast stuff for my eldest (pictured) when he showed an interest, and wanted to make it easier for others.
- Scale matters to me - you'll notice most items work well together (Yes, I know kids don't care).
- I'm using it to get experience of sitting on the other side of the table: learning more about marketing (SEO, pay per click, Facebook ads, etc), different e-commerce technologies (Shopify, Lemonstand, Stripe, etc) and day to day running (Fulfilment, logistics, importing, etc).
What I'm selling
I'm researching, stocking and selling a range of diecast vehicles and accessories at 1:64 (or as close as possible) scale, that all work well together. As I said above, scale matters to me, but I'm also putting everything under a single roof.
Where I'm located
I'm running this from my web design studio on Shambles, York. The delivery drivers aren't particularly happy about it.
