Second visit in less than a month good range of products and no hard sell and left seek assistance when required. I was in looking for more ballasting to complete my layout. Wullie was out and when I explained my requirements and the lady assistant called him on his mobile and he came and bagged up the four bags of ballast I needed. Good prices good service I highly recommend them.

Still friendly and helpful, but disappointing amount of stock. The shelves seemed a bit thin of goodies. Hope everything is still going well for them.

Great model shop wuillie is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Good range of stock at reasonable prices. A must visit if you are in glasgow easy walking distance from city centre and high street station

William helped me to get a chassis operational within minutes at little cost. It was an enormous help to me and his knowledge and skills are appreciated. His shop is well worth supporting - It pays in the end.

It's a long time since I last built a model railway so dcc is very new to me. Waddells were extremely helpful so at least I know something now. For a small shop they have a wide range of stock.

I've been involved with numerous "Experts" in providing detailed dcc fitting and just basic advice regarding upgrades from a dc layout to dcc. Until I met william at waddels models I thought i'd just stick to multiple concentric layout ovals. He and his staff have been ultra helpful. If he can't do what is required he will tell you up front. None of this "Oh just leave it with me" Then no contact for weeks . A great find for me .Someone I can trust. Someone who does a great job. Someone who cares.

More and more of our model railway shops are closing. This is a great wee shop where willie and his team go out of their way to be helpful and supportive of our hobby. Please go here and support them in return. You may save a couple of bob on ebay or similar, but you will not get the help, advice (Aye and friendship!) that you will find here. I have no connection with this business other than a very pleased and satisfied customer.

They stock Bachmann rolling stock, peco track. I took in an engine I was having trouble with, took time out to fix it while I waited. Very helpful.

Great wee shop and well stocked.The owner is very very helpful and such a gent. Its glasgows best model centre and can only get better.

Chap in the shop could not have been helpful with practical advice on painting a model - even advising alternate methods to the kit instructions that would entail purchasing elsewhere at diy stores. Learnt more in the ten minutes tutorial than I thought possible. Even suggested bringing in the model before completion for any further advice. Will definitely return to the shop.
