Ageless and Nostalgic Vintage Models

We support and showcase all those vintage and nostalgic plastic models from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970’s (plus a few gems from early 1980s) that many of us, now in our 50s, 60s and 70s remember from our youth. We embrace all plastic injection moulded kits, from any manufacturer that were newly tooled and marketed in that time-frame. Many of these models still regularly appear on the second hand market, while others get an occasional re-release by alternative companies.

While the moulds may be old, the techniques, the paints and the odd little bits of etched metal or resin that are often incorporated today, help us to showcase how these little nostalgic gems of yesteryear so proudly stand the test of time.

Many of the models our members now build, are ones they once aspired to build and own if pocket money ever permitted, or now desire to “build once again… and get right this time” as those words too, can regularly invoke cherished memories of innocent youth.

We welcome new members – be they kit builders or cherished vintage kit collectors, or even those who just want to look in on us and take a stroll down memory lane.
