Model Shops in Athens

Post by Jager » Fri Aug 23, 2019 9:55 pm

Just wondering if any of our European members have any recommendations for model shops in Athens. I've seen a few Greek sellers on eBay over the years with good prices, so I'm keen to see what might be lurking there.

Best I've found so far is a reference to Fasmamodels from an old Tripadvisor thread 7 years ago:

Just thought I'd give this thread a bump as I'll be in Athens next week.

Thanks Lee. I did think of that but unfortunately he hasn't been online since 15 May 2019. I did send him a PM anyway, but so far no response.

Would anyone have an email adress for him ?

With a little help from google maps, Fasma models in Athens proved very easy to find. It is a general model shop, with a lot more plastic kits than diecast:

They did however have a small selection of Maxichamps models for Euro 30 each:

….as well as a selection of part works models for Euro 8 - 12 each:

Most of the diecast however was 1:18 rather than 1:43. Unfortunately there were no Spark or other modern resin brands.

The trips been and gone Paul and I'm now back home. Nothing much model wise, but have some great memories and still have the extra 3 kilo's I gains from the fantastic food and wine.
