I couldn't agree with you more, there's been several discussions on this very subject. But it seem Airfix isn’t interested in ships any more except for occasionally re-issuing a few old tooling’s. I’m at present building the old Airfix “E-Boat” of 1976 vintage and I must say it’s still quite a good kit, with good fit; except for the hull and deck, and with a fair bit of detail, the crew members are actually superb easily up to the standard of, if not better, than the Revell German Navy set. Obliviously it could benefit from a new tooling, but even in it’d current state I’m sure it would still sell. Those 1/72 scale boats that Airfix issued way back have been re-appearing at various times over the years, and are a credit to the model designers and mould makers of the time. But as you say a new QE carrier’s just crying out for Airfix to make an effort as I’m sure it would sell like hot cakes. Maybe Airfix is quietly working on the model, but just hasn’t mentioned it. Still we can always live in hope.
