Airfix Make 'n' Paint

Airfix Make 'n' Paint is a great opportunity to try your hand at model building in an informal workshop environment. Drop in, choose your kit, build and paint it there and then, with advice and support on hand from the Airfix team if you need it. A great activity for the kids, grandkids or the young-at-heart!

Airfix Make 'n' Paint workshops take place throughout the year at the Hornby Visitor Centre, in addition to events around the country. For the full list of this year's workshops visit the Airfix Make 'n' Paint page.
