Sitting down together without technology don't happen often but when it does, working together to build a scale model is a great team effort and gives us something to look back on. Fairfax is a great memory builder!

All year long I build model ships.  But on Cristmas day my 2 girls give me my last present to open, its a challange and this is how it works

They have bought me a model and I have to finish it before they go back to school.  First I have to tell them about it, its history, have Inbuilt it before?  Every morning they want to see the progress, am i on time, whats it looking like so far.  When its finished they give me a score!, they added that to the rules lst year.

last year I built the Airfix stephensons Rocket, weatherd it looked fab, the year before the Airfix 1;600 Ark Royal, they loved the aircraft on it, the year before a 1:72 Airfix Spitfire the same as my ver first kit.  Its lots of fun and often brings back memories of kits I built as a kid,

I have a little disabled adopted brother in law who loves airfix almost as much as my husban. It's lovely to see an adult and child concentrating and having so much fun together. Little William is in a wheelchair and also developed touretts but despite this he can manage airfix and is a bright boy.

Haven't done a model for years but now have three great nephews and have bought one for each of them this Christmas. Helping them fall in love with this great hobby will bring us all closer together.

Christmas is the one time of the year where I get my whole family in one place, and a model will always come out of at least one parcel.  I think they're on to me!  My grandchildren are just coming to the age where we can all get involved, and the hobby is already rubbing off on my grandson.  He's getting quite a collection of "quick build" kits on his shelf.  It's so nice to pass on a quality hobby.

The only good thing about Christmas from my perspective is that it's when I can get all the Airfix kits that are otherwise unaffordable.My partner and sister are very generous in this respect. 

Christmas,I can sit down on my own and get stuck in to some modelling! Wonderful!

Airfix has been part of Christmas since my childhood when I received many kits. My first 1/24 Superkit.was especially memorable. Having built 1/72, the Spitfire was gigantic. My son enjoyed building the large Golden Hind and now my two grandsons enjoy both Quickbuild kits (like the Harrier) and traditional kits too. There is always something exciting to open and the delight on their faces bring mean Christmas would not be the same without Airfix.
