Rung an order in last week, Leigh ordered it in and phoned today to say the complete order is ready for collection at a price to compete with certain boxshifters.

He can also supply airfix and most other plastic kit manufactures (even the obscure ones) but might have to order them in for you.

 

Give them a try, they might be small but they do punch above their weight so give you small, local (or not so local) shop a try, I am sure you will be impressed.

 

Please note, no connection other than a (very) satisfied customer.

Hi All

 

May I just add that although i've not visited the shop (yet) i've had the pleasure of dealing with Leigh at the Newton Abbott toyfair (Ray Heard's) where Colletts Models regularly takes a stand. Prices to compete with anyone and a very nice person to deal with.

Looking forward to visiting the shop and am very happy to reccommend his excelent service.

Regards

Asked Leigh to sort me out some new items, he phoned me yesterday to say they were in and he hand delivered them to me at work at a price to match (or beat) every other shop.

 

No connection etc.

I have no connection to this shop :no: ​, I am a local frequent customer who knows what good service leigh (owner)gives and bargains he sells! It is a small shop and if he can beat the big boys with this good for him! If I know something is good its up to me and my option to let other forum users in on it, if you don't want a bargain go and pay over inflated prices elsewhere....

Whilst a review is great and glad to hear it's a good shop, I think this constant blatant ( and free) advertising is a bit much

So what's the difference from this thread and the one about a much larger retailer in Liverpool?

I only know Leigh from using his shop and I only found out about it from a bloke I work with, other than that I have no connection at all,with the shop, Leigh or anyone else connected with the shop!

A big difference, because there are no ads for individual products in at least the last two pages of hattons.

 

If you think something is a bargain, might I suggest the ' bargains ' thread.

 

There are model shops on here that actually pay to advertise on this site and thus support the site

Agreed, the model shop guide forum should be a guide to the shops not a list of best deals.

 

We all want to know about good service, interesting nuggets or when to 'beware' (not Colletts) but if you keep on sticking massive images followed by a price tagged with 'bargain' it does look like advertising which as others have said is paid for by others especially so when it comes from one person in one thread about one shop. If something really is a bargain then there is the bargain thread where everyone lists what they spot whatever shop it comes from.

Just want to add here too that Collet models provides a 1st class service. As said before, Leigh is very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable and will bend over backwards to get you what you want and at the best price he can do.
