Chris , St Albans - 28 Feb 2018 - Five Stars
Incredible range of parts and materials mainly for model railways, and scenery of all sorts. Some ready to run, increasing all the time. Paint, glue and tools. The proprietor, is very knowledgeable, willing to share his knowledge, and open to new ideas and techniques. Shop is crammed, and includes scale dicast models and a huge number of kits for buildings in card and plastic, as well as line side structures, plant and machinery. Although a lot is OO gauge, (1:76) N to O is catered for. Also a selection of military kits in 1:72 to 1:35 and electrical and control for model railways. New things seem to be added regularly to this clean and tidy shop. Worth going out of your way for. Easy to find, it is opposite the tourist information, where there is a car park. I live 130 miles away and try to get there 3 time a year at least!!!! Check out on Facebook.

I found them to be most helpful and so very interested in what I was planning to do. The 210 mile journey to Norfolk was woth it just to visit Bouys Toys and Models. I shall be back again.

David , Burwell, Cambridge - 15 Jun 2017 - Five Stars
I was so sad to leave Cromer not long after the model shop opened. A great variety of stock, well presented, and Dave was always very helpful. I started buying N gauge vehicles before leaving, and had purchased many bits and pieces for my N gauge project, and model boat project. I can only wish him well for the future.

Colin , Melton Mowbray - 18 Mar 2017 - Five Stars
Very nice shop, has lots ot kits and difficult to find items. Plus as a bonus its at the sea side. Spent all my pocket money...

Dave , Stowmarket, Suffolk - 23 Oct 2016 - Four & a half Stars
A model shop for serious modellers, no endless shelves stacked high with same coloured boxes, just shelves and racks containing tools, scratch-building materials, kits and accessories for serious modellers all mixed together in a historic building (I believe it used to be a pub) and this 'Mine Host' Dave has a warm and friendly demeanour that he could sell you a drink if the bar was still there!!

Peter , Brinton, Melton Constable - 22 Sep 2016 - Four & a half Stars
Very helpful, friendly and thoughtful service. Very proactive and prompt on special orders for the more serious modeller, knowledgeable advice. Very interesting range of products and open to suggestions for new stock items. A proper model train service in N Norfolk and worth a visit. Excellent parking immediately opposite, free for first 30 minutes - but I suspect you'll want longer......

Arthur , Northants - 03 Jun 2016 - Five Stars
Excellent service, very helpful. I recently wanted some 1:76 specialised figures which I had been unable to find anywhere for my layout and they found some and texted me when they were in. Nothing but praise.

Hart , Biddulph, Stoke On Trent - 28 Apr 2016 - Four Stars
very helpful and understands the hobby

Tony , North Walsham,norfolk - 27 Jan 2016 - Four Stars
Found Dave to be very pleasant,knowledgeable and very willing to consider stocking new lines or making special one- off orders. A welcome oasis in a largely model shop - free desert in North Norfolk !! Nice to find expanding range of N gauge goodies Well worth visiting - large car park (PAD) opposite
