Mid 1990s aviation hobby store at Mall of America?

Mon Jan 14, 2019 12:17 am

So I’m dying to get more information about my favorite childhood store at the Mall of America. It was a store that basically specialized in airplane models and memorabilia. The place was only around a couple years. I vividly remember buying a model there when I was 9 (1996). If I remember right it was on the bottom level on the east side. My best guess is E126, where the Vikings locker room currently sits. Anyway, it’s driving me nuts that I can’t find out any more information. Thanks

Interesting, I dont recall a dedicated store for models, however NW did have a ticketing agency store at Mall of America and you could by models ranging from snap fit to PacMin 1/100 scale models in both NW and KLM colors..

I remember the Northwest ticket counter/store. It had the big aircraft tail sticking out the entrance. Actually the model store was only about 3-4 stores away and around the corner if I remember correctly. Maybe the model store was there for an even shorter period than I thought.
