Small quaint shop that's rarely open with no parking.
It is rare for the woman behind the counter to even know what day it is not alone help with your query.
Most items are 10-30% more expensive than anywhere else.
With all that said it is a handy local shop that at a pinch might just be able to help you if you're desperate that is of course if it's open. [Response: "Reply to James from Macclesfield. I am the woman behind the counter and have been for 29+ yrs but not in the last 6 months as i have been having and still are having cancer treatment. If you had read the notice on the door you would have seen the opening times and they are also on facebook. So sorry my cancer has interefed with your modelling . Iris."]

Although I live in essex, I regularly visit family in stockport, and I have been going to this shop since it opened (Which was 1989, I think). It used to be almost exclusively radio control, but now stocks most model items. They have a good selection of kits, paints and tools. The proprietor, iris, is very knowlegeable, and will offer good advice on kits and radio control items. One of the best shpps I know. Easy to find, and there is cheap parking just around the corner.

This independent shop has now been trading over 25 years (So that speaks volumes in itself), the owner is very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable on products not only stocked items but items that can be ordered, this is a compact shop (Aladdin's cave) with a good range of products for all types of modelling & more, but occasionally runs out of some items but seems to have a good supply network with quick deliveries. This shop is within walking distance of the local bus & train stations & local parking.

Nice traditional model shop. Helpful and with good stock. Well worth a trip for the good range of plastic kits. Will visit again. Thank you.

Just browsing your site and I can confirm this shop is trading still. It sells RC models (New), model railway items (New and second hand) and scenics, paints, glues etc. It has a tie in with macclesfield model railway club who provide the stock and take a percentage for the model railway department. Hope this helps, ian (PS I am sure I reviewed this shop post-2007 on your site?). I have also updated a bit of the stock range below for you. Regards, ian
