Welcome to Frankton Model Shop
The Frankton Model Shop first started business shortly after World War II by a gentleman with the name of Alf Leong. Geoff & David Leong took over the family business in the mid 80's with Geoff running the store up until the early 2000's. Today the business is now owned by the Toia family
The Frankton Model Shop's success is greatly attributed to Nathan Toia who has been part of the team since 1991. Nathans vast array of experience in all forms of modelling is backed by multiple New Zealand National Championship titles, including representing New Zealand at a World Championship level multiple times over his career.
Brian,Cameron & Logan make up the rest of the team.
Brian loves vintage RC, Rock Crawling and does most of the standard repairs.
Cameron is our plastic's expert with his vast knowledge and interest in Military & Aircraft's he is great asset to the team.
Logan's is an expertise in R/C cars and with his multiple New Zealand National titles and international experience he can advise or build pro level race machines to compete at any level of racing.
It's with great sadness that we lost long time employee Lee Tracey early 2024 R.I.P
He was a valuable member of our team.
