About us



1001modelkits, which was founded by model making enthusiasts with extensive experience in online sales, provides you with the world’s largest selection of models and accessories.   

The world’s largest selection of models  

We feature all types of models (airplanes, military vehicles, boats, cars, motorcycles, trucks, figures, etc.).   

Thanks to the agreements with our suppliers, we can provide you with access to over 100,000 product references, from the biggest brands: Tamiya, Italeri, Airfix, Heller, Hasegawa, etc. The most pioneering brands are also put in the spotlight: Emhar, HobbyBoss, Aber, etc.   

Quality service from an e-commerce professional

The founder of 1001modelkits has extensive e-commerce experience, namely as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of one of Europe’s leading price comparison websites.   

Our cutting-edge logistical platform guarantees that your orders will be placed securely and shipped fast. 1001modelkits also features a peace-of-mind guarantee, which allows you to return your product within thirty (30) days instead of seven.   

Delivery is handled through Hermes or DHL for the United Kingdom: in either case, your order is tracked and you can check the delivery status of your order in your personal client area.

Payment security is provided by our partner bank CIC (Crédit Industriel et Commercial).   

Exclusively at 1001modelkits: the right accessories for your models

Is model making your passion? Have you been building them for twenty years? 1001modelkits has you in mind and has gone to great lengths to provide you with related accessories for each model: supplies (Humbrol or Tamiya paint) and tools (brushes, clips, spray guns), not to mention mini-detailing kits (Eduard) and decals to customize your work.   

Our mission: animate the model making community 

We are convinced that model making is a highly fulfilling activity: patience, precision, creativity, a taste for both history and technology. Model making develops all of this.   

We have therefore decided to embark on a mission to develop the practice of model making. 1001modelkits allows you to share pictures of your greatest creations and rewards the model makers who participate in the enrichment of our website. Also, we will soon be organizing model making workshops in major cities, so that hobbyists can discover - or rediscover – models in greater numbers.   

1001modelkits loves clubs! 

If you’re a member or a manager of a model club, or a moderator of a specialized forum on the internet, contact us: our partnership program will help you earn free gifts as well as discounts.
