Kim , Aylesbury - 15 May 2018 - Three Stars
Generally aimed a railways but still good for tools, materials and books. Model kits selection is a bit limited. Mainly larger scales. Friendly staff worth a visit.

Neale , Herts. - 19 Apr 2014 - Four Stars
Outstanding transport and military bookshop with a fair-to-middling model shop attached. Wide range of paints and tools. Many military kits. Reasonable range of model railway stuff. Useful ranges of peco and woodland scenics stuff. Limited range of 00 rolling stock, even less N scale. Prices invariably rrp, so not cheap. There are usually a few bargains to be had on remaindered books though, and sometimes a few bits of modelling stuff is on sale too. Very nice place to browse. Always worth stopping by. Helpful staff.
[Response: "We appreciate any review good or bad so hopefully we can work on bad appraisals to make any ones shopping experience with us a better one. One comment i will make is we sell our range of N & HO/OO locomotives & train sets at a lot less than RRP to compete with online traders usually undercutting them. Regards, Kerry Foster."]
