Our intention is to keep the model shop exactly like a model shop should be - Always a friendly atmosphere, always here to help both the experienced modeller as well as the newcomer into the hobby. We will not try to sell you anything that you do not need or do not want. We will stock as large a range as space permits and will offer an order service for those we do not normally stock. We do some secondhand equipment. We are here for all your modelling needs and much more.

My first time in this shop and I was very impressed as they had all I needed for a project and the owner was extremely helpful. I have been in the model industry for 35 years,in the aircraft plastic kit and model railway manufacturing fields.

Knowledgeable retailer and seems to have really taken off since moving up the road, plenty of stock and I usually , come out with more than intended. Mostly able to park outside the shop or the small retail park opposite.

This shop has moved a few doors along since I last visited it a year or more ago. No disrespect to the late previous owner, but the new owner has certainly brightened it up - Aided greatly by the extra light that the larger windows afford. A good stock of both N and OO were in evidence, along with a host of accessories, paints and other modelling materials. Asking the owner for something really obscure brought some positive suggestions even though he hadn't got exactly what I asked for. I got the impression that he's a fellow modeller because he was really helpful. Chatsworth, the peak district and the motorway (Jn 29) are all a short drive away, so from any of these locations you will find it easy to get to this shop. As a bonus I parked right outside; but even if you aren't quite so lucky, there's lots of street parking around.
