Aviation Models Shop

Aviation Models Shop

Open a specialised store in Central London that sells airliners models for the aviation enthusiasts.

We did it!

On 26th Aug 2017 we successfully raised £25 with 3 supporters in 56 days

The project

The goal is to open a physical store in Central London that specializes in retailing airliner models of different dimensions and liveries. The aviation enthusiasts community is a very important and very supportive one hence the goal to open this store and create a special place where we can all go and feel like kids again or feed our passion for aviation and models.

The models

There will be an entire range of commercial plane models to include from the early ages to the newer versions with all variations. An entire range of the most popular ones Boeing and Airbus with most requested liveries and special designs. We will include, at your requests, others that have not been considered. 

The motivation

I have always been an aviation enthusiast and love plane models as much as I like to watch the real ones graciously flying the skies. The internet is filled with online shops that sell models but I feel we would love to browse through a real shop and look at all the models in front of us, get the chance to hold them in our hands and then decide which one is perfect to increase our collection.

Personally, I want to create that experience where people can come and browse the shop, pick their model, get to hold it first and look at it, fall in love with it on the spot. To create a community of aviation enthusiasts where everyone can meet other people that love this world, browse together, share facts and information, hang out and be an active part of this world. I remember my first plane model I got when I was a kid, it was one of the greatest gifts I had and that is how I fell in love with planes and this world. 

I remember my first plane model I got when I was a kid, it was one of the greatest gifts I had and that is how I fell in love with planes and this world.  My first experience walking into a store was about 10 years ago and I felt like I was a kid again or that I was in a book store and spent an hour just browsing around and chatting with the owner.

Why pledge

For all aviation enthusiasts and collectors of plane models, this is a great chance to have this place where you can always go and check out all the new additions, expand your collection, magazines, special events with new launches, a place where you can get your gifts for your friends or even enjoy just spending time browsing with your family or friends.

I would love to have you all part of this if you are passionate about aviation or not. We can all create an amazing store with beautiful displays, limited edition and standard models launch every month for the most passionate ones and many other events.

All of our pledgers will receive a special invitation in the post should they provide their mailing address, to our opening day event where we will present the shop, the models and have drinks and snacks. The shop will be opened just for the pledgers and their friends and families on this special day.
