Wooden Model Kits

Wood is a fantastic material to build models from as it gives a really natural finish. Here are some of our favourite wooden model kits.

Key Information

  1. These are all kits, so require assembly
  2. You may need some additional supplies (e.g. glue), but the kits generally come with the pieces already cut into shape so no need to worry about that
  3. More advanced wooden models (such as radio controlled aircraft) will also need a battery, motor and RC components
