Welcome to Starling Models
We are a UK
based specialist, small scale ship model retailer and etch producer
stocking kits and accessories in 1/350 and 1/700. We stock
L'Arsenal, Combrig, Niko, AJM Models, 3dmodelparts, Trumpeter, Hobby Boss, Lion Roar, IBG,
Orange Hobby, Master Barrel, Samek, Dodo Models, Lifecolor paints and our own brand Starling Models. More
kit and accessory producers are being added all the time.
With the Starling Models brand we aim to produce top quality, good value products for the
modeller, we will not make expensive 'super sets' but provide the basic
details which will enhance your ship models. For those with an
interest in smaller scale aircraft, we will aim in time to
specialise in 1/144 scale.
Starling Models will also be re-releasing some of the 'semi-kits' previously
available through the Fine Waterline range. These provide the
basic parts needed to make a model, with smaller parts being supplied
from your own spares box as identified in the instructions. These are an
inexpensive way of building a model of some naval and merchant vessels
not otherwise available in the scale and can be built with as much
detail as the modeller wants.
