QuickBuild Flower Power Beetle (J6031) QuickBuild 'Surfin' Volkswagen Camper Van (J6032) Airfix Quickbuild Range Airfix released a new range of easy-build kits some years ago that combine the looks of a model kit with the ease of assembly of a Lego block construction toy, with large self-coloured parts and stickers that add quite a bit of realism to the finished model/toy. As well as aircraft the range includes tanks and vehicles, with re-releases in different schemes and with new stickers opening up new markets. Each kit arrives in a bright orange box with
Hands up if you watched Only Fools and Horses, looked at the Trottermobile and thought "i want one". Well Mr Scammell thought the same...he was just a little early that's all...
