RC Cars



Courier delivery delays - several months ago we passed all of our courier work to Toll for deliveries.  Recently we have become aware of a number of sub standard delivery issues relating to the Toll Network.  Discussions held with Toll management would suggest that delivery delays are likely to continue until after Christmas, as Toll do not have the capacity to accomodate increased demand at present.

South Island deliveries have not been affected at this time.

While we will use other couriers in conjunction with Toll (other courier companies appear to have similar capacity issues) we can unfortunately expect some continued delivery delays for which we can only apologise however once the package leaves our premises we have no control over delivery times.

Our shop is located at 37 Manchester Street, Christchurch and is a full stocked shop of just under 600 square metres of model railway, plastic kitsets, radio control vehicles, tools, paints and a large range of construction materials.

Shop hours are:

Monday to Friday   9.00am to 5.30pm
Saturday                 9.00am to 4.00pm
Sunday                   Closed

Our website is like a virtual hobby store with all our products.  And because our webserver works off our in store database in real time, (access our site directly through www.acornmodels.co.nz NOT via Google for up to date stock details).  If it is on the site, it is in stock.  If there is something you are looking for that is not listed, it may be temporarily out of stock, so just ask!

Whatever your gift, hobby and model needs are, visit the Acorn Models website or call us today.

We look forward to serving you.
