Keith , Windsor, Berkshire - 08 Feb 2020 - Four & a half Stars
Visited this shop while on the Isle of Wight, a very well stocked shop with friendly and helpful staff willing to spend time with you. Shop is well laid out and surprising when you walk in. Will pay a visit when on the Isle of Wight when there again Wish there was more shops like this around

Haydn , Brading Isleofwight - 04 Mar 2017 - Four & a half Stars
This the go to place for me, it has been built up to carry an extensive range of goods and exclusive products for modellers who are modelling the Isle of Wight railways. Product knowledge, problem solving, decoder fitting, if fact they will sort it.

Matt , Totland Bay - 02 Jan 2016 - Five Stars
Lovely and knowledgeable owners, good social medial connections, very well stocked with a variety of manufactures not just uk. A good reward scheme, if you are looking for one of those great model shops this is the place to go. Also a good café next door to leave the wife in :) as you could be some time.

New from Upstairs Downstairs

Upstairs Downstairs has just released the Paint Shaker by Timodel. This device saves you time and effort by mixing all types of paint in a fraction of the time that it would when mixing by hand, it produces a thorough and consistent mix every time which is essential for serious modellers but cant easily be achieved manually.
The Paint Shaker has the added advantage of mixing paints whilst still inside their original sealed containers, therefore avoiding unwanted splashes, drips and spills that you can experience when using a conventional stirrer.
The robust cradle and straps will securely hold bottles, tins or jars of paint up to 35mm in diameter making it compatible with all major brands of paint for modellers.
- Compact
- Operates on batteries or a mains power supply
- Can be used with tins, bottles or jars of paint
- Mixes enamel, acrylic, lacquers and washes
- Produces a consistent mix every time
- Clean, fast and efficient
- A valuable aid for modellers with dexterity conditions
- Includes 3 straps
- UK mains adaptor included
It is in stock now and can be ordered from our website.
