About Us


With more than 30 years experience in the model retail business having opened our first store in 1988, we aim to supply you with the greatest variety of models at extremely competitive prices. The team at Model World UK strive to provide excellent customer service - we don't just sell models we all have a love for what we do, and we also take part competitively in our hobbies, be it flying helicopters, quads, aeroplanes or racing cars and buggies. We love our jobs - who wouldn't enjoy working with these big boys toys all day every day!

In the spring of 2013 we moved from our site at Maidstone to our new purpose-built store in Sittingbourne where we have been able to grow and expand our offerings to you in a bright and welcoming store. And, in 2019 we nearly doubled the actual shop floor space to bring you even more products and also to allow us to launch the Sittingbourne Lego Store. 

We are currently open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 9.30am to 6pm


We stock Die-Cast models from many favorite manufacturers like Corgi, Oxford, EFE, Minichamps, Mondo Motors, Maisto, Spark Model, TSM Model, Hot Wheels, Burago and Top Gear.

If you are a keen modeller you can choose from a range of plastic models like Airfix, Revell, Hasegawa, Academy.
