With all these new releases, new armour kits, and vintage classics it is a pity that the excellent Airfix Napoleonic 54mm figures range has still not been retooled or reissued - still nowhere to be seen!. Shame, Airfix could not even manage a token effort for the 200 anniversary of Waterloo in 2015. Modeling is not just aircraft and armour.
Considering the RAF 100 and End of WWI centenary were damp squids, and the forthcoming Concorde and Apollo 11 50th Anniversaries rate only Vintage reissues rather than new moulds why would Waterloo 200 be any different (Mayflower 400 next year, rebirth of the Sail Ship line?...)
There are dozens of old moulds that haven't yet been added to the Vintage Classics thus far. The 54mm figures may have a following (id take a few to add to my existing small stash) but are they any more deserving than many remaining aircraft, cars and miscellaneous items?
