Motor Sport shop gift guide
Advent calendars aren’t just for Christmas. Car-themed versions contain all of the parts needed to build a range of classic models, ready to display, which will outlast most novelty alternatives.
Behind each of the 24 doors is a component used to build the model and display stand, giving you the satisfaction of self-building throughout December.
With just over a month to go until you open the first door, there’s still plenty of time to order now for delivery well before it’s needed.
The car parts are typically fixed with screws, rather than glued, making them simple to construct in stages. Screws and a screwdriver are usually part of the package. A sound module is included with all of the examples below, so you can rev up the festive mood.
We’ve picked a selection of classic car calendars, featuring 1:43 or 1:24 scale models.
