We could have skipped it. Theres no detailed tour of the model making. The 2 min tour is a sales pitch. The place is expensive. Not worth a visit unless you are really into collecting them.

The factory visit is not inspiring but there were some fantastic model ships for sale in the showroom. However it provided a welcome loo stop!

Why Thomsons put this on as part of the island tour I don't know. Seeing the finished boat is amazing but the conditions these people seem to work under is appalling by some standards. Boring, repetitive tasks. Oh dear, oh dear.
