A warm welcome to MJ Racing Models & Hobbies Community Page.. here we hope to interact and help customers using our site and facilities and keep you abreast of how we partner with our local community of Daisy Hill too..
FACEBOOK COMMUNITY GROUP: Model Kits for Less: Here Group Members and customers can enjoy the very latest /future releases from the modelling world, have access to the MJR Supply Chain, view 'Supplier Specials', request sprcific kits, post experiences, work in progress (WIP), and share technigues.
NEWSLETTER: Feel free to register your email address to receive our regular newsletter. We will endeavour to make you aware of new products added to our site and/ or future releases from the manufacturer's of plastic model kits (Hornby, Scalextric, Corgi, Tamiya, etc).
NAVIGATION: Here we are aiming to help customers navigate our site with the best results. Choose the PRODUCTS (above) then use the side bar CATEGORY menu to find your items or chose a category from the items that appear on the Products Page. Placing your mouse/cursor over the CATEGORY menus provided on the Products Page (ie: Slot Cars, Plastic Kits, Trains & Scenery) will show the series of Sub Categories (ie: Slot Cars will show Scalextric, Ninco, etc), then simply move your mouse /cursor onto the sub-category of your choice and press Enter. It is that easy! Once in the category of your choice you can browse individual products at your leisure..
SEARCH TIPS:When using our SEARCH facility, please be as specifc in your search as possible. For the best results please use the manufacturers product code, so, for instance for Scalextric, use the 'C' prefix code (ie: C1234, C1250, C3316 etc). If you simply put in Scalextric, Tamiya, or similar, you will end up with every product with that name, title, or even partial string of characters included in their description or title. We hope that helps you in your browsing experience of the website.. Any problems, please call us at the shop or ask using our Contact Us page! :o)
JUNIOR MODEL CLUB: Currently we run an 'after school' Junior Model Club at St George’s CE Primary School which is held on a Monday (my day off!). Last year was a success and we are hoping for new blood for this year too.. Hopefully we will be able to showcase some of the childrens projects in the coming months..

IPMS: The International Plastic Modellers Society (UK). A friendly society for scale modellers of every age and ability. I am a member of the Bolton Branch IMPS, but there is a network, which can be found on the main IPMS website. New members welcome..
