For all the modellers who are interested in participating in this GB, perhaps this link I found to an on-line version of the Airfix 1980 Catalogue will help in checking the kits they wish to build are 'in scope'. Have fun!

The first full catalogue front and back pages and price list, from 1962. Prior to that the catalgues were simple printed sheets.

Thanks, TonyW. I think I asked before if there was an equivalent for 1980 (as our qualifying year) and Ratch kindly came up with pictures of that - must ask again. Regards, Mike

I don't have a 1980 catalogue, they are a bit on the rare side and very expensive whenever one turns up. I do have a 1979 one though, with the Type 6 oval logo in use and the non violent artwork on many boxes.

The 1979 catalogue runs to over sixty pages, so posting the whole ting here would be a bit of a task. I'll post here if there's interest though.

 

Here's the aircraft pages,

Some interesting boxtop artwork there. I don't think I've ever seen the Jet Provost in the RAF green/grey scheme. Another that stands out is the light grey OV-10A Bronco. Were these ever released?

I'm not sure about the Provorst. 

The Bronco  box art did change to a grey aircraft, but from a front 3/4 view.
