Our first of our best-selling hobby gifts for him is the U-9 Grand Prix car from Ugears, and it's one that represents a vehicle from the early days of Le Mans in the late 1940s. Offering incredible detail, a fully working wooden 16-valve V8 engine that actually drives the car for several metres on a single wind, this is a model that he'll love piecing together.

In fact, this model is so realistic and appealing to petrolheads that it got rave reviews in Top Gear Magazine a few years back!

Again, after it's completed, the Pendulum clock makes an amazing home decoration that can be enjoyed for many Valentine's Days to come.

The Speedfighter From Veter

The last of our best-selling model kits for adults is the Speedfighter from Veter, which is a great-looking aeroplane that's based on the iconic Spitfire that ruled the skies during the Second World War. Complete with visible engine pistons and functioning flaps and a propellor, this is a truly wonderful model to enjoy both before and after it's completed.

Like many of the models in our range, it's one that requires no glue or tools to put together - just patience and time. Another amazing gift most men will love.
