Please note - The Beatles Shop will be closed from Sunday 26th February while we have important repairs done to the premises. The work is expected to take around 10 days. During this time there will be no one available to take phone calls and we will have no access to emails. No staff will be available for valuations. We apologise for any inconvenience. Hopefully we will be sorted, tidied and everything back in place by the 10th March, but please try ringing us first around that time just to make sure we are open. Thank you

The Beatles - Model Musicians

Back in the 60s NEMS licensed lots of Beatle novelty items, including a range of model kits.

Here's a half built Ringo and Paul.
The half complete models are in the pictured Paul box with instruction leaflets from both Beatles and carry an estimate of £40 -£60 for the whole lot.

However - also in this year's auction are two rare unmade model kits of John and George, with the model pieces still in the plastic bag.



These carry an auction estimate of £200-£250 each!


By the way, if you'd like to see scans of the fact files on the reverse of each instruction leaflet please take a look at The Beatles Shop blog entry about them here.
