Visited this small shop and was surprised at the wide selection of models they stock. A variety of models to make or pre-cast models etc. Good for all ages.

Petty little signs 'do not touch' taped to every conceivable surface, yet very little that is actually breakable. It's worse than the china shops when I was a boy in the 70s! Why not do what other shops do and put genuinely fragile stuff behind...More

I can highly recommend this model shop, especially for their brilliant selection of pre-owned items; excellent prices and shop owner was pleasant and extremely generous - will definitely be back!

Called in the model shop today, stickers telling adults not to touch, are placed on every shelf through out the shop. This is very intimidating, if I pick something up and I break it, no problem I will pay for it...!! Avoid and shop online

If you wanted to look at something all you had to do was ask and would not have minded you picking it up. The amount of breakages we get are high and most won't pay.
