Very good service would have given 10 perfection but only for your website Small updates like how much stock you have of each item displayed better pictures and sizes of some of the items I know it takes a lot of effort to keep the website up to date Thanks for your support

A 4-item web order has been outstanding for 6 weeks, and after chasing on a couple of occasions, the owner informed me that I should receive my order within a few days. That was 4 weeks ago! I have been sending several mails since, but no response. I rang once and was promised to be called back, but no call back. Now, I have cancelled my order. Total lack of Service and competence!

Perfect, everything ordered in stock ,quick delivery and well packed.

I have used this dealer a few times since I discovered he dealt in O gauge modelling. The service has been excellent, I have been updated with the order status and it has always been well packed and arrived in good condition. What more can I say, I will keep using them.

For N gauge this shop can't be beaten. They stock just about everything the N gauge modeller will ever need. The staff are helpful and friendly and willing to offer advice. Prices are very competitive. The only thing I would criticize is the location, Osbournes is 200 miles from home! When are coming back to Abingdon guys??

I have been seeking this rare Oxford Diecast model,Burrell Showmans Engine-GT Tuby 76BUR003 for many weeks.When I found it at Osborn's Models it was purchased and dispatched within three hours.It is the quickest turn around I have experienced in 20 years of collecting Diecast Road Steam Models,very good for someone dedicated to Railways.To make it even better the price was better than similar models from dedicated Diecast Makers and dealers.A fantastic outcome from a great dealer.

I think the ease of ordering from you is really easy and the product choice is far more than most shops I have used just recently. I was really happy with the response I got with the oder. I will use again
