About Acorn Models

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

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

It's 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.

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, if it's on the site, it's in stock. If there is something you are looking for that is not listed, it may be temporarily out of stock, so just ask!

Acorn Models covers all kinds of model and hobby products from:

  • Motorcycles
  • Cars
  • Planes
  • Boats
  • Helicopters
  • Slotcars
  • Radio controls
  • Trains
  • Kitsets
  • Rockets
  • Paints (including Vallejo), Glues and Finish
  • Tools & accessories, and
  • Books & manuals (including Kalmbach)

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

We look forward to serving you!
