Hunstanton Models remains open as usual despite an on-going refurbishment programme.
Regular customers to the Hunstanton Model Shop will notice a dramatic difference as they cross the threshold.
Now that new owners, Anthony and Stella Gooch have had some time to get their feet under the table, Hunstanton Models is moving onwards and upwards and visitors to Hunstanton who “discover” us whilst visiting the town say they are glad to find “a real model shop” (their words!) particularly as so many are sadly closing throughout the UK.
The shop is currently undergoing a refurbishment programme and already things are improving rapidly. We hope visitors to the shop will appreciate that the shop environment appears lighter, brighter and more spacious. As work progresses, customers will more easily be able to browse the displays and locate what they are looking for and a wider range of choice will be more visible.
Our standard range of products continue to cover a range of remote control cars, planes, boats, helicopters and tanks as well as:
- plastic models such as Airfix and Revell
- match model kits
- modelling accessories including tools, glues and a comprehensive range of Humbroll paints
- a range of Scalextric gift sets plus cars and accessories for growing an existing set
- diecast Oxford and Corgi vehicle
- railway products from Hornby, Bachmann, Farish and Piko (for the garden railway enthusiast). Model railway sizes include 0 gauge, 00 gauge, 0H gauge, N gauge, T gauge, G gauge. An extensive range of model railway items are also available including track, modelling scenery, model buildings, model people, tools and many other related accessories
In addition to the regular product ranges, Hunstanton Models now has more choice of hobbyist product ranges including:
- arts & crafts gift sets
- quality supplies for artists including portable easels, quality oil and water-based paints
- educational skeletal models which clip together
- dolls houses and dolls furniture and accessories
- 3D cardboard models (some with LED lighting) of famous landmarks such as Tower Bridge, Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Whitehouse, Big Ben and more
Once completed, the shop will have a new look front window with a model railway as part of the display. Thank you to all customers and browsers for your patience thus far. We feel that the refurbishment is now at a stage where there is little or no inconvenience to our customers but work continues for a little while yet.
This season Hunstanton Models will launch a new e-shop at www.hunstantonmodels.co.uk. You will even be able to buy gift vouchers on ine for use in the shop. This e-shop will develop over the course of the year and should go live for Easter 2012.
