AK RC & Model Shop was opened by Tony Hill in July 2018 due to the rapid decline in RC shops, there are so many online stores out there for RC but we are sadly losing the shops, people still like to go into RC shops to browse and to see what they are buying, although we do have an online shop for convenience we do feel that it is important to try to keep these little shops going. We stock all kinds of RC Aircraft, Vehicles, Equipment, Accessories, Materials, Static models and Toy Gliders. If we don’t stock it, we are happy to order it in, we have a large workshop to the side of the shop for all of your modelling needs, we run a build night on Wednesdays that starts at 6pm where everyone is welcome.
Tony, has been involved in the hobby for over 20 years, is a mine of information, from complex technical issues through to advice on models, you simply couldn’t ask for anyone better to help, so if you are in the area, pop in for a visit, it will be nice to meet you!
