SAn Aerodrome Review of 2017


391 posts

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Review Edition of Aerodrome is now available! In this traditional festive edition, we look back on another hugely successful year for our aviation blog and feature such delights as a bare naked Lancaster, a gathering of ‘whistling chicken legs’ and an impressive selection of images from the 2017 Airshow season.


We also look forward with some excitement to the Centenary year of the Royal Air Force in 2018 and how Aerodrome readers can help to make their own lasting tribute to this significant occasion.

Hi, Having been a modeller for about 35 years Airfix have been a big part of my building. I started out with the bag kits and slowly worked my way up to the more complex kits. My major purchase being the 1/24 Mosquito that I bought in 2009 and still waiting for me to build. I've seen the brand go through some hard and sad times but this never stopped me from building any of the kits. The take over by Hornby I consider the best outcome for the brand as seeing it vanish would be extremely sad to me. The revamp has been exciting to see and with the publication of the stand alone Airfix Modelworld magazine showing pre-release builds this can only nose well for the future of this iconic brand. All this from an Australian who built his 1st Airfix kit at 7 and hopes to still be building at 80. Kindest regards to all and keep up the wonderful work. Cheers.
