lancaster model shop
« on: August 03, 2012, 07:09:02 AM »

Hi all.
just been away for a weeks holiday down carnforth and had a run to the model shop in lancaster, all I can say is what a cracking shop it it now.
twice the size it used to be and some great deals on offer. (and plenty of kits to look at)
one thing I do like in a model shop is a bit of second hand gear to have a look at and buy.
couple of things that I thought bargain was a second hand tunnel hull speed boat 20 with radio and also a nice large cruiser model boat 5ft ish long
only 75 looked a nice model.
only problem I had was we where camping so could only get some mags and small parts I needed so the boats are still there but will be having a run down again in a few weeks time.
keep up the good work
all the best

That is the Lancster Model shop, yes. It's my "local"  {-) Only an hour or so away by car.
And yes, it is a fantastic shop.
Not the best for boats I suspect. Their range of boat fittings isn't extensive but they're very helpful. Plenty of planes and cars.
I was very tempted by the second hand Flower Class they had there for some time..it was huge.

Just in case one wants a second opinion of one of their items lol

but they're very helpful.

Agree totally Rob........I was in there two days ago when I took a 2.4 receiver back that I bought just before christmas as one of 3 with 3 tranny's that I bought for my lifeboats......and by now you can tell how considerably dusty it had got......it just wasn't binding with the 3 tranny's..........dad and son had no problem what so ever in swapping it for a new one..............no quibble or argument at all............NOW THAT IS  a superb service, and it's worth the 50 mile round trip to buy my stuff from them....

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL HOBBY SHOP!!!.....YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE!!! :-)) O0 O0 O0
