STU FONE discusses the amazing new products expected from Airfix this year…


If Airfix’s release announcements are thought of as having themes, then that for 2023 is ‘welcome to the hobby’, with a notable focus on its popular Starter Sets. Rest assured though, there is plenty to sate the modelling appetites of those wanting more involved kits, with its other ranges expanding via a combination of new toolings and re-releases, while there’s a superb batch of Vintage Classics that will provide plenty of nostalgia. Such is the breadth of subjects covered, here we’ve split them into three sub-sections: New Releases, Refreshed Kits and Vintage Classics/Quickbuilds. Note that this article covers just the new additions to Airfix’s catalogue, meaning there’s even more to choose from throughout the whole catalogue.
