If an Airfix fighter plane kit doesn’t quite fulfil your creative urges, maybe the thought of building a VW Camper Van will appeal.
Build Your Own VW Bus is in the traditional of those old model kits, but with a bit more cool. Available in blue or red, you get all the small pieces (plus screwdriver and instructions) that will undoubtedly test your patience as the nights draw in. But if you have the time and an eye for detail, you’ll be rewarded with a working model featuring a die-cast metal body, opening doors, pull back and go motor, bolts, lights and dashboards. And the feeling of pride that comes with a job well done.
Available online, you can pick one up for £7.99.
