I confirm there is an aviation hobby shop at Lahore near center point but i have yet to check it out myself. Not sure if they sell models but RC aircrafts perhaps.

There are model shops in LHE and ISB but they only sell RC models. There is no apparent market for diecast or desk models in Pakistan.

There was also a Hobby Lobby here in KHI, but I'm talking about 15 years ago. They used to sell Hasegawa airliner model kits from time to time and I picked up well over a dozen of these airliner kits over time. After that they closed down and I visited the LHE shop about 5 years back and they only had one Hasegawa 737 kit which I bought. Nothing else.

So did I. There used to be loaads of them there - nearly every airline I could think of.
