    Airfix 2019

    If Airfix "should continue giving out DD Gift sets in 1/72" they wont make any profit But it would be good for us modellers

    Airfix 2019

    If I recall correctly the Wimpy was announced in an anniversary (50th?) issue of the Workbench I am sure we will see at least 1 new kit in the workbench this year, but don't expect any other announcements until late in the year or early January, clearly Airfix are changing the way they announce new kits. But of course last year could have been a blip, we will just have to wait and see. ATB Rich

    Airfix 2019

    2019 should be the time for a new 1/24 kit as it was previously stated by Airfix that it would be every 5 years. (As the original Typhoon was released in 2014 – Although it could be 5 years from the Car Door release) As much as I would love to see something completely new in 1/24, I suspect a new spitfire would be well received. (Mark/version TBD) The spitfire is not in the current catalogue and I cant ever recall Airfix not having a Mk1 or 5 available, although either could be reissued under the "Nostalgic kits" banner. If its not going to be a spitfire (if a 1/24 kit at all) – then I hope it’s a Gladiator, Tiger Moth, Meteor or Westland Wasp Cheers Rich

    Airfix 2019

    Guys, come on this is the Rumourmonger section where I expect to hear what Airfix might be providing us with next year, not “Business Model”, Sales Performance, comparison of Airfix in the market place and general comments on how Airfix should run their business. If you want to discuss that, please set up a new discussion in the Chat or other suitable area and keep this to what we would like to see or hope Airfix produce in the coming future. Please get this back on track Thanks Rich

    Nice to see that we don't have 200 modellers telling Airfix(Hornby) how to run their business for once. Now hopefully we can get back to guessing what Airfix will offer up next year

    Airfix 2019

    I know Airfix have previously stated that they wont make a kit unless they have suitable drawings or can measure/scan an actual aircraft. I think it would be good to build up a list of such aircraft so that at least we wont expect them from Airfix unless someone discovers a box of drawings in their granddad's shed. So do we know of any aircraft that fit in this category?

    1/48 - Airfix Spitfire Mk XIV - Release ??/??

    The Airfix catalogue does not show the Spitfire Mk14, so looks like a school boy error on the website, rather than a last minute change. However i I see that there are no 1/24 spitfires in the catalogue, maybe time for a new one in 2019?
