Yeah - got one too - excellent level of light. Well worth the cost, I'd say, especially if your modelling area is only lit by normal spotlights or fluorescent tubes. If you don't want to use the magnifying centre, then that's fine, as there is a cover for that, and then it can be used only as a light. However, the magnifier is quite strong - the level of magnification is good too. And the whole thing is reasonably sturdy, and clamps onto the side of the modelling table/desk.

Also on sale was the compressor and airbrush set - not worth it, IMHO, unless you are starting off with airbrushing and need to try it your first before going for something more serious.

They also have various Art supplies including paintbrush sets (fairly crude but quite cheap - €1.99) and charcoal sets (perhaps worth getting for weathering purposes etc.) The rest of the artists stock is more for kids etc. If your SWMBO is into crafts of the fabric kind, there are other goodies there, including a quite reasonable sewing machine.
