   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.
