AIRFIX VINTAGE CLASSICS – BACK FOR 2022
Older Airfix kits from the 1960s-70s are steadily returning to the catalogue. CHRIS CLIFFORD explores those being re-released this year.
‘Heritage’ kits from Airfix offer the opportunity to revel in nostalgia, but they are also beloved of modellers who relish the chance to improve them with re-scribing, scratch-building and the addition of aftermarket details if desired. It is sometimes the case that an old Airfix kit is the only example of, say, an aircraft in a particular scale. And even back then, Airfix kits were always known for accuracy of dimension and shape.
