David Jefferis: Tucked behind Flixton’s useful shop is a treasure-trove of a find - behind protective glass lies a beautiful recreation of a 1950s-1960s model maker’s den, just packed with gear that represents that era.
Where modelling is concerned, one thing doesn’t seem to have changed one thing much down the years. Mother, wife, or girlfriend may try their helpful hardest to keep things clean and tidy, but in doing so, they end up being well-meaning enemies of delicate models. Antennas, landing gear, and other breakable bits, beware!
Plenty of World War II era aircraft kits available here.
