Hornby Hobbies has opened a pop-up shop at London St Pancras International train station, which will be trading until Christmas.
The shop will feature products from Hornby Hobbies’ brands; Hornby, Scalextric, Airfix, and Corgi. Amongst these products features a Coca Cola Christmas Hornby train set and the classic famous Flying Scotsman train set, along with the fitting Eurostar train set for the international travellers passing through.
Corgi will be offering a range of film and TV die-cast models, from British classics such as the London bus to The Beatles Yellow Submarine and the James Bond Aston Martin DB5.
The die-cast Harry Potter Hogwarts Express will also be on display next to the station which famously homes Platform 9 ¾.
Scalextric will be offering a range of sets and cars from Looney Tunes, Wacky Races and Justice League, with sets that feature loops and half pipes! Racers will have the chance to race as their favourite Caped Crusader, Wonder Woman or Man of Steel, or recreate their own Wacky scene in the Mean Machine or Compact Pussy Cat.
There will also by a new My First Looney Tunes set for the pre-school racer, with the option of racing as Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck.
Airfix QUICK BUILD will also be available; an exciting range of simple, snap together models suitable as an introduction to modelling for kids (ages 5 and up), or as a bit of construction fun for the more experienced modeller. These models require no glue or paint, and the ‘flower power’ vehicles include a cool surfin’ sticker sheet.
The pop-up shop will be open 7 days a week, from 7am through to 9pm, and can be found near Eurostar Departures.
