Now on the same main road as Fratton Model Centre, the shop is now on one floor. Plenty of new and secondhand stock, displayed so you could see it! Attentive staff.

Richard , Emsworth - 03 Nov 2017 - Four & a half Stars
Tucked in a back street and not east to find this is a little gem. The model railway section is downstairs and not always staffed so you may have ask to go down. Darren who looks after it is extremely helpful and a wizard at repairs and decoder fitting and testing. The stock is much larger than you might expect, and very comprehensive. Discounts are sometime available. It’s rapidly becoming my first port of call.
[Response: "Thank you Richard for your honest review, look forward to seeing you again soon at The Model Shop."]
