Welcome to Scoonie Hobbies.

A real model shop, run by modellers for modellers.

We deliberately don’t have a shopping cart facility because we want you to get the right bit first time.

With over £15000.00 worth of R/C spares on the shelf alone we can normally find the right bits to keep you flying, sailing or driving.

Remember we also stock Scalextric, plastic kits and model railways plus oodles of small tools.

Why not give us a phonecall and speak to a human-being who knows what they are doing!
