Talking Tees Valley: Meccano, Hornby and Airfix

03 October 2022

Each month we use objects and photos from our museums in the Tees Valley to take a closer look at the lives and stories from people in our area.

This month we look at the Meccano, Hornby and Airfix sets kept in our museums. Find out about the history of these three companies and how they made their signature toys, and also learn how to make your own paper airplane.

In this pack we take a closer look at Meccano, Hornby and Airfix model sets, as represented by collections and images in our museums.

This activity pack contains images, discussion points and activities for you to enjoy.
