Model shops in Cornwall please..

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know of any good model shops in Cornwall please? Currently on holiday down here for 2 weeks as I have a holiday home down here and wouldn't mind popping along to one to see what they have in stock.

Many thanks,

Tristan

Kernow model railways in camborne do kits too.

IIRC T7 have a stall in the big market at Pool, near the mahoosive Tesco, in addition to their shop in Truro http://www.t7models.com/

I think the stall closed soon after the shop opened....

As already stated, T7 are now only in Truro. It's well worth a look.

Not a model shop but the out-of-town shopping centre Trago Mills on the A38 between Bodmin and Liskeard has a reasonable selection of Airfix and Revell kits, all at discounted prices (varies but of late around the 16-20% mark). Check out the books too: often they have Ian Allen and Midland Counties stuff at prices that undercut remainder shops. You can set the rest of the family loose on the rest of the huge shopping centre - just keep hold of the credit card.

Otherwise, after T7 Models and Kernow Model Centre, you're quickly down into shops with just an handful of models. Of those the best is probably Blewetts in Hayle, who have about 100 or so kit from Airfix, Revell and Italeri: okay if you need your plastic fix.
