We look forward to welcoming you to our model shop in Somerset.

A real destination for scale model enthusiasts!

After opening in May 2022 we have quickly become one of the best model shops in the South West. The shop is located in the village of Ilton, 5 mins off the A303 at Ilminster and 15 minites from the M5 at Taunton, Somerset. We are situated on Ilton business park which was built as part of Merryfield airfield. Merryfield played a role in in dropping the famous 101st Airborne Division paratroops near Cherbourg as part of the D-Day landings with over 70 C-47s being based here.
