Here's some suggestions:
1) Don't buy any Airfix this year
2) Hope that next year things will be better for you
3) Address the stash (if you have one)
4) Buy kits in scales and genres from the myriad other manufacturers that are in the plastic kit business, that suit your taste
They couldn't do anything for D-day in 1/48 either; how hard would it be be to knock together a D-day set similar to the battle of Britain one
I'm struggling to think of which kits, other than the P-51D, that are available from the current tooling catalogue, from which you could 'knock together' a D-Day set. Give us a clue.
sorry for the late reply, been at work and the airfix website is still slow; ive already pre-ordered the one 1/48 kit i want from the airfix releases which is the tiger moth and there are still lots of last years airfix kits avaliable that i can buy, apart from the tiger moth nothing else takes my intrest.
I was thinking for the d-day set they could have a Supermarine Spitfire mk v with a bedford truck and mabye some ground crew. The spitfire could carry the scheme of one of the spotter planes used by the US or mabye one with the invasion stripes which in my memory i have never seen airfix do on a spitfire (im not saying they have never done on; i just cant remember if they have done one)
as they are partnering up with acamedy for tanks they could partner up with another asian modelling company TAMIYA and mabye get permission to include there 1/48 jeep in the kit aswell in return for one of airfixes ground vehicles which tamiya havent done
