About us

Acorn Models Ltd has New Zealand's largest range of model and hobby products and supplies.

Established as a Christchurch retail shop in 1985, we've grown in size and popularity and now have a large mail order base serving the whole country and many overseas countries.

It has always been our wish to make available the best quality products at the best available prices.  To achieve this we source product from around the globe, importing many items which are not typically available from hobby stores within New Zealand or sourcing from New Zealand importers and representatives of all leading brands.

Over the years we have developed a large mail order operation and indeed this internet site is an extension of our retail store's mail order operation. 

So come on in and check out the latest and greatest models.
