Lowestoft is on the East Coast and is the most easterly place in the United Kingdom. It is 120 miles north east of London. It is in East Anglia which is a popular area for aircraft enthusiasts with it's many military airfields, both RAF and USAFE. Lowestoft is within a 60 mile radius of Mildenhall, Lakenheath and Marham. There used to be more but Bentwaters, Coltishall and Honington are no longer operational and Wattisham now has Army and SAR Helicopters.

Modellers will enjoy a visit to our mail order warehouse which is where the stock is held and which has it's own large car park. It is open six days a week from 9.00am to 5.30pm. 4.30pm on Saturdays. This is a 30,000 sq ft warehouse so please do not expect a normal model shop!

Our London, Colindale, shop first opened in March 1992. In 1994 we took over the adjoining unit and it soon became THE address in London for modellers from all over the world to visit. Slightly ahead of Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London! 

In May 2006 the original shops had to close because we were unable to re-new the lease as they wanted to bulldoze and redevelop the area but in June 2006 a new shop opened just up the road past the RAF Museum. They stock most of the ranges we sell from Lowestoft plus second hand kits. To be sure you get everything you want you can use the website to pre-order for collection and payment at Colindale. Go into your Delivery Address country and change it to Collect From Colindale Shop. You pay when you collect and get 10% discount! We do need the order placed by 09.00 on Wednesday so we can get it there in time for you to collect.

The closest underground station is Colindale on the Northern Line some 30 minutes from the center of London. Just turn left as you leave the station and walk for about 5 minutes just past the RAF Museum until  you  get to a small industrial park. Alternatively take the 303 bus which drops you outside the Museum. The underground ticket covers the fare cost at the time of writing this. For motorists it is near the end of both the M1 and A1, about ten miles inside the M25 and has free parking outside. Follow the brown road signs to the RAF Museum.
