    Default model shops - diorama/ stop-motion sets

    Hi there,
    I'm about to start some test-shots for an upcoming Stop-motion/CGI short. Setting is early 20th century in an urban, harbour area.
    I'm wondering if there a shops, where I can browse and simply buy some of the needed models instead of building everything from scratch.
    Any help appreciated. Thanks

    Could you be more specific please?
    What type of models, scale and budget are you looking towards?

    Sorry, of course. Anything that could be used in an urban, industrial harbour setting late 19th/early 20th century. Like cranes, all type of cargo and pallets, sheet pile walls, jetties, pontoons, storehouses and workshops. Sailing ships and steamers would fit in, too, but well I'm pretty sure it's not hard to find shops that sell that.
    Scale. At this point of time it's not that important. I would simply go with the scale I would find the most models.
    Budget. Not so sure about that. If the models save me lots of time scratchbuilding I would simply buy them I think.
    Thank you!!!

    Probably best bet would be to look at some Model Railroad terrain and items as you will find more of those that are pre-painted and around the time frame you are looking at. I haven't used any of this and not sure of the price. Not sure where you are located, but here are some online ones in the U.S. at least.
