Let's not go there, there have been many discussions about why Airfix chose 1/76 for tanks and 1/72 for aircraft.

Oopsy, another kit for the stash...

 

 

... I've been persuaded to take part in a build along!

I thought I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, it was some ###### bringing me another loco!!

My latest acquisitions are :

DH TIGER MOTH with RAAF decals

MDD F4 PHANTOM × 2 (have 3 to build)

BRISTOL BEAUFIGHTER

Would love to see the old Bentley Blower released again with a clean up of the moulds and maybe some photoetch  included. Some more of the car kits of the past if no new ones forthcoming.

Some more of the sailing ships like HMS Victory would be great as well.

I've got a stack of Airfix kits both old and new. I'm 58 years old me have been building Airfix kits since about age 7. Always been one of my favourites.

Why!? It's only advantage over a 1/24 scale kit or a 1/43 diecast is "being 1/32 scale".

Though I fly through the shadow of the valley of death, I shall fear no evil, for I am at 65_000 feet and climbing.

Maybe he meant the 1/12 one that was last issued 3 years ago.

I have just bought a 1915 Stutz Bearcat of the ClasicCars collection, 1/25 scale. I was thinking how nice it would be if Airfix bought out an upto date issue of the collection.
