Last time i was in Lahore i went to Liberty Market as it was there few years before when i went, but no to be surprised it was closed and i don't know if they relocated or just went bankrupt, i also located another Hobby shop in "C" Block market of Model town at one time, they were manufacturing there own designed Radio control models (RC), but again i don't know if they exist still or not. Just so you all know last time i went to Lahore was in 96 so its been 10 years now.

I went to Hobby Lobby I think about 3 to 4 years ago and all they had, which I got for around Rs.500 was a Hasegawa 1/200 JTA 737-400 kit.

On one of my trips here to the UK I went and purchased a set of 1/200 decals for a LOT 734 for this kit as I don't plan to make it JTA.

umm hobby lobby is still open but now an exclusive club for remote control airplane flyers.
you only find tiny plastic military airplane models there, seriously over priced.

These days Hobby Lobby shop is in Centre Point shopping plaza on Gulberg Main Boulevard. They deal in RC aircraft and their accessories. For PIA enthusiasts they don't have anything to offer.

you better hope I dont get my hands on you.......
by the way, a couple of years back I ran into a Paki guy doing model sales through the net....though I dont remember the name of his site, but it did show up in google when I searched for " Model Aircraft " or something. Might want to try that.
Anyways, the models were around 600-700 not sure what of though. He had some TWA / Pan Am jets and I think a PIA 707 too.
