I bought this as a christmas present for my 11 year old son and he loves it! The quality is great and it's what I would expect from a long established company. I would definately buy more airfix models for my son, and have done recently as he loves them!

Very nice models I have made the hurricane and making the fairly battle but can tell already will look good especially with all the right paints in the set, this is very good value if bought separately would be a lot more to buy.

This set is very good value for money, the aircraft are not airfix's newest but certainly look good when built. The acrylic paint that comes with the kit are alright but it looks a lot better when sprayed.
