New from Upstairs Downstairs

Upstairs Downstairs has just released the Paint Shaker by Timodel. This device saves you time and effort by mixing all types of paint in a fraction of the time that it would when mixing by hand, it produces a thorough and consistent mix every time which is essential for serious modellers but cant easily be achieved manually.
The Paint Shaker has the added advantage of mixing paints whilst still inside their original sealed containers, therefore avoiding unwanted splashes, drips and spills that you can experience when using a conventional stirrer.
The robust cradle and straps will securely hold bottles, tins or jars of paint up to 35mm in diameter making it compatible with all major brands of paint for modellers.
- Compact
- Operates on batteries or a mains power supply
- Can be used with tins, bottles or jars of paint
- Mixes enamel, acrylic, lacquers and washes
- Produces a consistent mix every time
- Clean, fast and efficient
- A valuable aid for modellers with dexterity conditions
- Includes 3 straps
- UK mains adaptor included
It is in stock now and can be ordered from our website.

Feature on A to Z Models
I have been dealing in Vanguard since they were launched in the 1996 at Toy Fairs and I may have met of you across the years. I regularly attend Sandown, Maidstone, Brentwood, Windsor and others including NEC, St,Neots and other venues.
Oh how we miss these toy fairs, for not only are they a place to do business, they are a place for social gatherings for people with a similar interest in the model collecting world. I have made many friends and associates over the past 20 odd years and I dearly miss the early rise at the weekends, going to venues along empty roads. I look forward to the day this Pandemic is behind us, the few outdoor events I attended in the past few months have been welcome, but the winter weather has put a stop to them.
I continue to keep in contact with collectors and other top dealer mostly through Telephone and emails and via this site. I closed my website 2 years ago as it had failed to pay for itself. I am old school and people are free to contact me via this UK Model Shop web site. I have many customers who have contacted me over the past month wishing me well and I thank them for their kind words.
In future articles I will include more photographs. The one I am using here is the one I use on my banner on my UK Model Shop banner. I am fully stocked on all Vanguard releases over the past few years at reasonable prices. I do not advertise on any other web site or ebay. The Ford Granada Mk2 Cosmos Blue is also in stock along with other from the 1/43 Vanguard range.
I also have a large stock of EFE that I have failed to mention on previous updates. Looking forward to hearing people and this pandemic being history.

JSModels announces new kits in O Gauge / 7mm Scale

Following the success of JSModels OO gauge / 4mm scale building kits, we are pleased to announce an expansion
Into O gauge / 7mm scale with the immediate release of two new kits.
Based on two of the kits from the 4mm waterside series, these low-relief kits are laser cut from a combination of
2mm, 3mm, and 4mm MDF, with 180gsm card roofing slate strips, and come complete with 240 micron acetate
Glazing material, and full-colour printed assembly instructions.
Jumping up in scale has allowed the inclusion of additional detail not available in the 4mm versions, such as roof
Gutters with stone corbel supports, and engraved flooring with plank lines and nail holes.
The two kits are:
JSM743 Canal Warehouse End 1 a four-storey building end with a column of loading doors and cover above, this
Building is 260mm wide, 38mm deep, and 425mm high. The loading hood projects a further
32mm out. Doors can be modelled open or closed. (Painted/detailed example shown below left).
JSM753 Canal Warehouse End 2 as above, but with additional windows instead of the loading doors & hood.
(Unpainted as built example below right).
Both kits are in stock and available to order now via the website, at a price of £45.00 each.
Further kits from the 4mm range will receive similar upscaling in the future if there is sufficient demand.


As we hope you can appreciate we cannot visit every Shop and Supplier in the country. So your help and assistance is always greatly appreciated.
Alas, sometimes shops do close and we are invariably not informed, so it is always best to ring ahead if you are planning to make a special journey. If you do find a shop listed that is closed, please let us know to help others.
You can submit information on the forms that are on the following pages of the website;
Events, Clubs, Layouts, Information and a General Enquiries form for everything else.
Also, if you know of any Supplier or Retailer that isn't listed, why not let us know. Fellow modellers will surely benefit.
