Welcome to The Hobby Box, a family run model shop in the Sussex Weald midway between Brighton and Tunbridge Wells.

The Hobby Box has existed in Uckfield for over 35 years and in it’s current location for seven of those.

We stock items for many types of modelling from a tiny N gauge sheep to a ¼ scale RC aeroplane fighter with all sorts of things in between. We are actively seeking second-hand N, OO and O Gauge locomotives and rolling stock, with part-exchange considered on new items.

Whilst we currently don’t trade online, but please contact us if you are seeking a specific item, we are here to help. We have also began listing our current stock of RC Model Planes and 2.4GHz Radio Transmitters, find that list here!

The manufacturers and products we stock are listed on the ‘About Us’ page, and our contact details and opening hours can be found on the ‘Contact’ page here.

Please visit our ‘What’s New’ page to see news of the latest stock.

We look forward to seeing or hearing from you.


Dear Customer,

Due to a family bereavement, this shop will be closed on Friday 29th July. We will be open as usual on Saturday 30th July.

Thank you.
