Don't have many model shops in my neck of the woods, where would be the best for mail order in uk? Saw reports on Westbourne.

Huntsman fittings kit. by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Novagsio Do tread carefully if you intend to use Westbourne as there has been posts on this and other sites regarding their poor service level and lack of advertised stock. Canabus has a build blog Not sure exactly what fittings you require but Reade Models may be able to help as they supported fittings for many of the kits produced alongside the Precedent range. If you are looking for the window frames then you may need to fabricate from liteply, or if you have a 3D printer source have some fabricated.

Hi Novagsio The only place that my help you out is Westbourne, but, they sell to full kit. May sell the fittings kit. The original handrails from my Precedent fibreglass hull are total rubbish, but, I only got with my second hand unfinished boat the air scoops. So I plan on making the hand bow rail and windscreen. My boat is in the BUILD BLOGS on the site. Canabus

Hey Garth. I feel the same as Doug. DO NOT ORDER OFF WESTBOURNE MODELS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. All the forms are strewn with people who have lost money to them and never got it back. Please heed these warnings. Kindest wishes, Dave W 😊

Hi Garth, If you mean Westbourne Models DON'T TOUCH 'EM WITH A 10FOOT BARGE POLE! Every model boat web site is full of long running threads about order taken, money paid and nothing delivered and no contact or just bullshit excuses! Also here - better look somewhere else 🤔 Cheers Doug 😎

WESTBOURNE MODELS by EAGLE Lieutenant   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Joe I hate to talk ill of any model shop, but give them a wide berth. Dave

WESTBOURNE MODELS by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Joe, if they are it borders on a miracle! Don't touch them, they have a shocking reputation for taking the money and delivering at best excuses. Check here - style='background-color:yellow;'> Cheers Doug 😎

Hi All, Are Westbourne Models still trading? Regards Joe

Westbourne Models by Peter47 Commander   Posted: 10 months ago
Yet they still show the shop frontage on their site and Magazine adverts. It was a sad day when my local model shop Ashton Models closed, know far and wide used it man and boy in that order, they were old school, seemed to know everything about any hobby you could think of, rarely where they stumped. If you needed a thingy bob for a whats it you call it, you left with the very thing you needed, it was a treasure trove. A sad day indeed when they closed.

hi this is the part of the miniutes from the club i belong to not looking good as i liked the old shop. 🤔Model shops - There are now no local model shops, Westbourne Model Shop are working out of a garage opposite their previous shop, not much stock is held and not easy to look at, some members have said its not worth going to😱😱
