Step back in time when model shops were just that, ‘model’ shops, offering collectors and fans alike the chance to start, add-to or complete a collection, no matter what their interest or budget. Fettler’s Workshop is your local model store which virtually serves the world.
Fettler’s Workshop (established in September 2009) brings you a quality diecast product every time. All of our items are handpicked from around the world from our trusted trading partners and are subjected to rigorous testing and scrutiny before being listed in our store. You could spend hundreds even thousands of pounds as well as endless days searching stores for that model to complete your collection, we may have it right here!
We don’t have a company mission per se, but we aim to provide you, our customer, with a wide range of diecast models in the hope that you can add these to your collection, no matter how big or small it is at a competitive price. Most of our decisions are made after extensive market research and listening to our customers to discover just what exactly it is they are looking for. We have established partnerships with suppliers worldwide to bring you some rare, country-specific, unusual as well as mainline models.
Fettler’s Workshop is located in Leyland, Lancashire, North West England, famous primarily for the bus and truck manufacturer Leyland Motors, which between the 1950s and 1970s expanded and grew to own several British motor manufacturers, including BMC, Standard-Triumph, and Rover, culminating in the massive British Leyland (BL).
More recently, the charming town of Leyland has undergone a series of redevelopments, with a series of major retailers moving into the area, on both sides of the town. This has seen the demolition of old factories, and their replacement by retail facilities. For example, the old British Tyre and Rubber Factory was knocked down to make way for attractive new studio apartments and housing in 2004, with a Morrisons store, Homebase and Argos added in June 2006.
We pride ourselves on having an excellent relationship with our local post office, therefore all items are shipped quickly after cleared payment.
All our items feature some or all of the following highlights:
§ Authentic colours,
§ Colour-keyed trim,
§ Detailed front grill and lights,
§ Chrome accents,
§ Faithfully reproduced body vents and accents,
§ Detailed badges,
§ Detailed ‘alloy’ wheels,
§ Tinted windows,
§ A detailed interior.
You can find our current postage rates next to your country of residency in the ‘postage and payments’ section above, but remember, Fettler’s Workshop offers combined shipping if you are looking to buy more than one model, and our rates are very attractive. For our UK customers each additional item bought on the same order requires an additional 50p shipping and handling fee whilst customers in the rest of the world pay just an additional £1 for each additional item bought on the same order. To take advantage of these great savings, please wait until a correct invoice is sent to you which takes into account the shipping and handling discounts. All of our items are sent via Royal Mail using a signed-for service.
We are constantly updating our stock so please remember to visit us frequently; you never know what you might find or sign up to our weekly newsletter to get the lowdown on our latest additions to our store.
We look forward to working with you,
Ian at Fettler’s Workshop.
