Under Lockdown I have for the first time used the Hobby Shop mail order system. It has been very good and straight forward to use and safe delivery of items via the Royal Mail. Whilst no substitute for a personal visit it has been good to support a local shop under these unfortunate circumstances. Well recommended.

Great News for Kent Modellers. The Hobby Shop has moved from West Street to a much larger premises at 85 Preston Street, Faversham and remains a modellers "Aladdin's Cave" but now with greater room to view the immense stock. Top Marks to Harvey, the Manager, for making this very bold move and he deserves every success. I have been a very satisfied customer for many years and highly recommend this shop to my fellow modellers. Now worthy and as promised that 10 out of 10!

Since my last rating in 2015 this shop has gone from strength to strength and really is an "oasis" in a barren area for a truly personal run model shop. The range of products has expanded even further with war gamming materials in stock, often useful for the model railway enthusiast. Lego is also now in the range. As I have said before the "10" is only held back by the need of big shop. A happy customer of many years.
