I would just like to wish anyone reading this A HAPPY NEW YEAR for 2011 and hope that you had a wonderful festive break.
KT Miniatures began in January 1997 which means that 2011 will be my 15th year of trading..... I have to keep pinching myself as I can hardly believe it!
When I embarked on KT Miniatures all those years ago changing complete direction jobwise after a career in nursery nursing, creating simple miniatures & room boxes literally off my kitchen table, I had no idea that KT Miniatures would build into the business it is now and that I would still be here, all these years later working full time at a job that I absolutely love. Although I am sure that 2011 will not be without its difficulties for many of us in business, I am forever optimistic and bursting forward with ideas for the new year.
I do not open again officially for business until Monday 3rd January, however I have been quietly beavering a little behind the scenes, tweaking my website. Which leads me onto say that my RECOMMENDED RESOURCES PAGE FOR 1930s/1940s MINIATURES has now gone live! This is something that I have been thinking about for a while, as am frequently asked for information on relevant books, magazines etc. that I could recommend for 1930s/40s projects.
So here you are.......I have compiled a page of information, including amongst other categories, relevant book titles, magazines, UK museums plus various artisans who produce some amazing1930s/1940s miniatures. I have even included links to three inspirational online videos, one being the 1940s wartime house that was based on the Channel 4 TV series in 2000.
The compilation of suggestions on this page is by no means a definitive list as I aim to add much more as time permits.

Hope you find it useful and inspirational.
