Airfix Classics Launched

A few years ago, I was talking to an Airfix rep and asked him about reissuing the SRN-1 Hovercraft kit. He said they might consider it to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Hovercraft's first flight which was in 1959, so that would be next year. I wonder?🙄 

Surely it would be 2009 ?

I think they were teasing you. They didn't even re-issue the excellent 54mm Napoleonics for the 200th Anniversary of Waterloo 😢

Surely there's a problem with the Basset anyway, as part of the Kitstarter blurb was that if we ordered enough they would produce a batch and the kit would never be reissued? Also , the success of the Basset in the Kitstarter stakes will have taken a chunk out of the potential market.

Well they could reissue it with different decals. In a sense, it would be a different kit.

Mmm...

A nice thing to for Airfix to do would to produce an new P-51B. But would the old P-51B get a place in the classic range?

There are of course other kits from Monogram (old but best shaped), Hasegawa and Academy (wrong wing) and of course Revell (nice but with bad clear parts).

 

Well maybe the F-86D Sabre is the better North American aircraft to reissue in the classic range...
