Airfix Vintage Classics
Since Airfix came onto the market in the early 1950s, it has excited and entertained generations of young boys and girls who have then carried on with the passion for the brand throughout their lives.
During these decades of modelling, Airfix has produced hundreds of fantastic models, across many different categories, and the majority of these tool moulds still exist. The plan is to make many of these available again over the coming months and years. Not all will be possible, but we’ll certainly come back with some old favourites and nice surprises along the way.
These “new” Vintage Classics will contain kits from the pre-Hornby era; i.e. those not designed in CAD, and will carry where possible an older classic illustration. The box will include the year that the kit first appeared on the market, plus carry the modern Humbrol colour references. Therefore these Vintage Classic items will sit alongside the “new era” items and make it far easier to choose the one you want without any confusion on what period of Airfix’s fantastic history it comes from.
We know many of these models are a little more challenging for today’s modellers, but that’s part of this brilliant hobby’s fun. With some wonderful “only produced by Airfix” items to come, the excitement’s really building!
