Visiting a Model Shop – What You Need to Know

Visiting your local model shop is always an exciting time. If you are a fan of RC models, whether you prefer cars or airplanes, you will have a lot of fun visiting these shops. Many of the RC cars and aircrafts are designed for adult use, and children should only be allowed to use them under the supervision of an adult. However, many people end up spending a lot more than they originally planned to when visiting a local model shop. Some of the things that you will find at a model shop include:

  • LiPo and NiMH batteries
  • Building sets
  • Custom models

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money the next time you visit a model shop, there are a few simple things that you can do. With so many different model shops in Kent, the best thing to do is to make a shortlist, ranking the best shops to the worst. Here are some tips for shopping at a local model shop.

Decide What You Want

Before you visit a local model shop, it’s highly recommended that you make a decision about what you want to buy. This will help you focus on what you should buy first before you start exploring other things at the shop.


Work on your bargaining skills so that you can get a discount from the model shop owner when you purchase something. There’s always a bit of leeway when buying something, so it’s best to negotiate.
