Highly recommended

Visted this model shop for a few things really as i have 2 sons and 3 nephews all 5 of them into very different things one likes rc cars well there was over 50 different cars to choose from so i found one of them, one like helicopters they had loads of them so got one of them, one like static models well there was lots of them so hey i got one of them and the other 2 wanted a rc plane Guess what they had lots of them too so got 2 of them too as for the comment below there is a big car park there for about 100 cars so cant see the problem.

Very small range of stock, rude, unhelpful staff who don't seem to have the knowledge I would expect from a model shop.

Very few models available for sale especially planes as they seem to only be interested in RC cars. Would be difficult to carry a large model (if they had any in stock!!!) to the car due to a lack of parking nearby.

As a beginner to the rc models I am not really up to date with all the new bits on the market I went to crb models in Southend and must say what a shop !!! The service was excellent and as a begginer I don't really no a lot about it and they were happy to explain things to me and spend time showing me different things without just trying to sell me the dearest one one the shelf .

Thank you crb models for all your help and I will see you again very soon

having used this shop now on many occasions i have always been treated with the greatest respect and that nothing was too much trouble for the staff if the part or product was not in stock it was obtained within a very short period and i was notified of its arrival straight away and that prices were the same as certain larger concerns in town.Chris and his wife are very polite and show genuine concern for your needs and offer sound advice where and when its needed .I wish them good luck and in thier business project and look forward to future dealings with them

Went to shop for a browse really and found the owner very helpful and friendly. After a long chat he gave me some very good info to think about before buying anything. he wasn't pushy like other local model shops and overall a very pleasant experience. I will definitely visit him again to purchase a kit or two in the future.
