KIT model shop in London ?



Kit Krazy model shop, Bexleyheath Broadway 2 post-lock-down 2 and a trip out to Bexleyheath, East London/Kent, to visit one of London's last 'old' classic model shops. From Peter Skipp's 'google' review;

 ".. wonderful haunt for scale modellers! Even if so many South East England mainstays had not sadly gone, I would still rate it as London's top model kit shop. A quiet atmosphere allows callers to browse undisturbed -- as they need to, in view of the huge stock that takes some browsing! A helpful and knowledgeable owner assists with even arcane queries. Parking in the area can be problematic, but public transport is plentiful and frequent, so spare your nerves and enjoy your visit undisturbed by using it! The area has plenty of nice greasy spoons where you can take a cuppa and refresh before continuing your pleasurable progress through Kit Krazy's stock!.." 

 Masses of stuff on site if you want to dig around and you will get a discount..


  1. Talking about having a flash back. For a couple of minutes I was back in the late 60's and 70's. There where dozens of this type of hobby shop all round the Detroit area. Little Mom and Pop stores that sold Lionel trains. Had the small train table. Then the rows of model kits. The shop in Hamtramck was the first shop to import airfix from the UK. Warbirds in Lincoln park had a connection in Japan with all the Japanese kits. When the beginning of the Squadron Shop when it was only Walt and Jerry. They always had free coffee. Those where the golden age of the hobby shops. Thanks for the memories.

  2. enjoy your comments Gary, thanks!
