scale model shops-Central London

Recommended Posts

There are no proper model shops in central London. There is the toy shop Hamleys that has a model section, just Revell and Airfix but the prices are higher. The shop is in Regents Street. There is an Hannants near the RAF museum but that is in Colindale but not open every day and the Aviation Hobby shop in West Drayton near Heathrow Airport.

Regrettably, due to the high rents central London commands, the centre is a model shop desert.


As my learned colleague comments, AJ Aviation (formerly The Aviation Hobby Shop, open Mondays to Saturdays 10.00 to 16.00) and Hannants (Thursday & Friday 11.00 to 19.00, Saturday 09.30 - 1700 & Sunday 11.00 to 16.00). Both require some travel - to get to AJ take the railway from Paddington to West Drayton then a short walk whilst to get to Hannants take the Northen Line (London Underground) to Colindale and then another walk (Just past the RAF Museum).


If any Londoners know of any more, perhaps they might post here.
