LSA Models

From The Brighton Toy and Model Index

LSA Models was a modelling shop a couple of minutes walk Westward of Hove Station, on Sackville Road just south of the railway bridge, selling plastic military, aircraft, ship and car kits and accessories.

The management had 35 years of retail experience and had been trading from the address since 1999.

2015 announcement:

LSA MODELS HAS NOW CLOSED

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS

After 35 years working within the retail and Plastic Modeling trade in various capacities, of which 20 of that was running my own business LSA Models, I have finally decided after a great deal of thought that the time has come to take some sort of semi-retirement.

Running your own business is very much a 7-day a week job and I have been really lucky that modeling is also my hobby. As you get older when health issues can start to impact on you I have made the decision to close the business down and perhaps now have the time to do some of the things that I have always wanted to do. LSA Models has always been a family-run business and I will now be able to devote more of my time to them.

I have thoroughly enjoyed running LSA Models as it has brought me into contact with so many great customers, many of which have also become truly good friends of mine over the years.

The last day of opening will be Tuesday 30th December.

Thanking all my customers past and present for their custom over the years.

  • Writing of articles for modelling publications
  • Commissions to build model kits including figures and accessories
  • Airbrush and Modelling Tuition in our new purpose built workshop
