Hornby Hobbies Introduces Airfix Quick Build Volkswagen Vehicle Sets

Just in time for the 50th anniversary of Woodstock and the “summer of love,” Hornby Hobbies introduces a pair of ’60s-inspired building sets from the Airfix Quick Build range: the Flower Power Volkswagen Beetle and Surfin’ Volkswagen Bus.

Designed to introduce the world of scale modeling to kids ages 5 and up, Airfix Quick Build kits combine modeling basics with the familiar mechanics of interlocking brick building that kids are used to.

The durable kits create a playable vehicle that young builders can decorate with the included stickers. No glue or paint is required, and the included bricks are compatible with most major interlocking block brands, such as LEGO and Mega Bloks.

Airfix Quick Build kits contain between 27 and 40 parts, and are manufactured in the UK. The kits are available directly from the official site or through local hobby shops and specialty retailers.
