Cool ARD shop, enjoy the pictures.

Here are some pictures from ARD shop in London, Uxbridge, easy way to get there by tube on Hillinghton train station a nice little paradise for the serious collector, a welcome coffe is always available.

Just remember everything here is for sale!!!!!










This shelf reminds me my model cave,


A nice suprice, a 1:200 scale Fleet Air Arm HMS Ark Royal aircraft carrier arrived from China, ready for the early 70's era jets to land.

Thanks for posting. Now I have an idea as to how big the Short Belfast, C-133 and the Douglas Globemaster II as compared to other 1/200. Now to raise at least $900......

Hi Modesto,

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Previously ARD did not stock any type of naval ships before. Nice to see them branching out to other lines of models.

Regards, Robert

Good seeing photos of ARD and the aircraft carriers seem to be getting a lot of attention. Would have quite a bit of presence in the living room if one wasn't put off by the price

My favourite shop on Earth. Due to my newly diagnosed health condition, this video is probably as close as I'll ever get to actually visiting that lovely place again.

Thanks for the link Rober!

Good old ARD...this is where the magic began. First visited in February 2007 and with the accidental discovery of the BigBird/Aeroclassic 747s here, I've never looked back.

yeah if you live in the UK or around London, ARD is a very cool shop for collectors but if you visiting or a tourist coming from the outside into the UK or London, then buying 6-8 large 747 models ain't very convenient because how are they gonna fit in your suitcase if you happen to carry one as well...
