Airfix have removed most of their old kits from the line up. They were too expensive and some of them complete shonkers .
They were only shonkers due to the price - as the last chance to buy proved - sell em cheap enough and they will go.
How about Airfix going old school - stick em in a bag with some cardboard at the top, one set of markings. get them in Clintons , whatever - anywhere , make them pocket money prices (10 quid) and they will sell especially if Airfix set up an online area where videos show the build and how to enhance it (simple scratch building). Some kind of game wouldnt be a bad thing.
The re-release of all the old engine kits was a case in point - how come they didnt release the motor , even as a seperate part.
Its clear that Airfix have decided to target a specific line which will appeal to the budget UK, US and European market so lets leave the obscure Armour to others and concentrate on core customers - wish they would just get a lot smarter.
