Ever wanted a giant version of an unmade Airfix model bolted to your wall? Of course you did. Now you have the chance. Jellio is the ultimate in retro-kitsch-art, selling anything from glass encased Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots ($800) to Rubix Cube coffee tables ($600).
They also sell this Airfix style wall decoration ($2,500). Unfortunately it’s not actually a F-15 or a Harrier jump jet, instead being a drive-in movie theatre-inspired slice of Americana. I still think it’s rather cool and a bit different to having a print of some sunflowers above the mantel piece. Yes, all this stuff is grossly overpriced, but when I’m a multi-millionaire rock-god with his very own guitar shaped swimming pool, I’ll have the money to buy whatever I want. And buy these I will.
