Designed in United Kingdom.

Brand: The Vintage Model Company.  Designed and Made in: Bakewell, Derbyshire, UK

Ask any Dad or any Granddad, and they will be able to reminisce about the days in their childhood when they sat down to construct a DIY model aircraft. Hours of uninterrupted enjoyment, fiddling around with glue and craft knives, and then the joyous feeling of utter accomplishment when it's finished. The Vintage Model Company hark back to that time. A time when "stick and tissue" planes were all the rage and a Sunday morning at the park would see dads and sons flying (and crashing!) rubber powered aircraft in every direction. Who wouldn't want to relive those memories?! The Vintage Model Company began life as Replikit in 2012 when they took the company over. In 2015, the Magnificent Flying Machines range (designed by aeronautical engineer and keen aero-modeller Andrew Darby) was launched. This range consists of iconic Battle of Britain aircraft, vintage bi-planes, civilian models and a couple of traditional "sports fliers". Given that children as young as eight used to build these kits in the 40's and 50's, there's no reason why, with adult supervision, you shouldn't introduce your youngsters to this rewarding and inspiring hobby! Cuckooland are big fans of all things retro and nostalgic so we love that The Vintage Model Company are 'on-board'. A huge Yay!
