From the Author

A celebration of one of the biggest names in boys' hobbies
For men of 'a certain age' the name Airfix conjures up fond memories of rainy afternoons spent gluing wings to fuselages of 1/72nd scale plastic Spitfires; or daubing matt enamel 'Dark Earth' camouflage paint to 'HO-OO' minature tanks during the 1960's and 1970's. Though still going strong, Airfix was once perhaps Britain's biggest name in boys' hobbies. I wrote this book to celebrate this period. Illustrated with dozens of colour photographs of, now rare, classic kits, and featuring interviews with the masterminds behind the firms commercial success - and the engineering draughtsmen who designed individual scale model replicas - this book is a trip down memory lane.
