me and my partner love spending quality time together doing airfix models. 

I am a Scrooge. Excerpt when building Airfix models! Then I help my family reduce my stash!

We love building Airfix models together and it really helps when we visit airshows and aircraft museums to see the real aircraft. This year after Christmas we will be going to see the Shuttleworth Spitfire being restored at the moment so will be building a Spitfire!


My name is alexandros chatzimanolis and im from greece. I love to make models and this is the best christmas present ever.

Thank you

We give them as presents and the whole family enjoys collecting or putting them together.

Me and my family really enjoy making Airfix model kits over Christmas... it brings such happy memories back to me personally from my childhood...when every Christmas i would recieve an Airfix kit or figures as a stocking filler. Its a great time over the Christmas period making Airfix models and figures as the weather is usually bitterly cold this is the perfect tonic while you keep nice, warm and cosy.

I've not made a Airfix kit since around 1974,and after seeing the spitfire in a well known food shop. Has made me wanna start building again . Kits and stash..

Christmas is the season when I can spend quality time with my grandsons, building and painting Airfix kits. My family usually give me something on my most wanted list, last year the Handley Page Victor. The boys got Quickbuilds and thoroughly enjoyed putting together their Typhoon and Harrier. My affinity with Airfix goes back to the 1/24 Spitfire my parents presented to me. Airfix brings us closer together as a family, spreading the Christmas spirit.
