We’ve lined up some great trade support for Scale Models Expo, with model and tool retailers from around the country and overseas. Visiting the show will give you a great opportunity to see the latest models and hopefully pick up a bargain or two!
Established in 1985 the retail shop in Christchurch has grown in size and popularity to its current operation which includes a large mail order base operating from one of New Zealand’s largest retail stores for model and hobby products.
Wingnut Wings’ passion is to provide accurate, highly detailed, large scale models that are as enjoyable to build for both the experienced and novice modeller alike. By designing these models to be a pleasure to build we hope to attract people unaccustomed to the satisfaction of modelling aviation’s epic and tragic pioneer years.
