Every time that you look at your collection, it takes you back to a special moment. One that is frozen in time; preserved. We aren't collectors of wood, plastic, and metal. We preserve memories.

Maybe you're the hero who overcomes impossible odds. Or the pilot that bravely finishes a mission that you won't return from.

That's what you're collecting when you buy from Merlin Models. The perfect representation of your favorite memories. Always ready to take you back. All it takes is a glance.
