Worcester model shops

Antics models, Worcester

Worcester's a nice town - it has two good model shops !

Starting out from the station you find Antics models. It's down a side street and above a camera shop. Inside there is a selection of die-cast, r/c cars, plastic kits, railways and loads of other stuff. The premises aren't large but they are absolutely stuffed with stuff and well worth a rummage. Plenty of modelling material on offer too. Sometimes these get the push from chain stores but not here.

Five minutes walk away you find Kitz shop. This is mainly for the railway modeller (UK and foreign) but there are plastic kits and dolls house items. Again, plenty of materials are stocked so there is no need to to be short of a tinlet of paint or sheet of plasticard in Worcester.

And just in case you are wondering, it's not compulsory to turn up in a silver Mercedes !
