Where can I buy model figures/ accessories for my boats?
« on: August 27, 2009, 01:04:05 PM »

I have a 1930's motor sailor that would benefit from a couple of models, preferably sitting in the approprate clothes for that period.  My OH has a french fishing boat that he would like some lobster pots for. I have been told of a shop called hobbys? in suffolk but cannot find the website. Any help please?

Don't know if this is what you are looking for, probably not as its in Norfolk.

If you give us the scale you need we will be able to help a bit more.

Thanks for all the suggestions, the boat is 42" long so I am thinking 1:24 or 1:32. I will give george Turner a ring as several people have said he is very good.

Depends on how big your boats are, but for larger scales, try Dolls House Shops, The are in 1\12th, 1\24th and 1\16th scales, and there are a bewildering assortment of things to choose from. worth a look.
