The Northstar Models and Hobbies Story

Northstar Models and Hobbies is a shop created for collectors by a collector. Matt Baxendale discovered his passion for die-cast models at the early age of five when his grandfather took him to a magnificent model shop. Ever since that day, Matt’s dream has been to open a plastic models store of his own.

After years of dedicating his time and talents to interior design, he decided to follow his gut and pursue that dream. That’s how this online shop was born. Northstar Models and Hobbies aims to offer a space where those passionate about models can find unique and select products to add to their growing collection.
