About Us


If you’re on our Blog then you probably have an idea of who we are, but if not I’ll quickly fill you in. By the way I am Russ – general dog’s body and one of the owners…

Jadlam Racing Models, Jadlam Toys & Models, Jadlams (or whatever you want to call us), is a family run Model/Toy retailer – established at home in 2005. We started off specialising in Slot Car products but over time have added various Toy and Model brands. I’d currently call us a “Model Shop that also sells a handful of renowned Toy brands, such as LEGO etc.”

We’re based in Glastonbury (yes, I go to the festival and no I cannot get you free tickets!) slap bang in the middle of Somerset. We’re a young, forward thinking outfit trying our very best to get Toys & Models into the hands of both experienced “Hobbyists” and Newbies alike! I think it’s very important that we try to ensure that the traditional Hobbies we all love are represented in a fresh and modern way to keep new and fresh faces interested…

We have started this blog as a way to grow our community in a relaxed environment. We have the website, www.jadlamracingmodels.com which is all serious and about selling you product – but this blog is a way for us to connect with you on a more personal level, offering our advice and sharing the combined knowledge of our staff and various influential figures throughout the Hobby Industry.

With our own knowledge and fantastic relationships throughout the industry we aim to bring you the following:

  • Great Product Reviews
  • News
  • Advice, “How To” & Buying Guides
  • Offers and Promotion
  • Your Model Builds, Layouts and anything that might inspire you!

If you have anything that you would like to add, or subjects you would like us to explore then please do reach out to us. You can pop us an email at support@jadlamracing.com and one our fabulous team members will point you in the right direction.

I really hope you enjoy our Blog and find it genuinely useful or at least interesting. Come back soon and if you can, pop by jadlamracingmodels.com every so often and spend some money – it helps us pay the bills and keeps the blood running through the Hobby Industry.

Have a great day.
