Classic Airfix Concorde for 2019

Yes, its gone again.

 

Its interesting to note the whole classic range has now been reduced to three pages on the Airfix site, from the five and half to six pages previously.

 

Tommo.

I don't think there is anything sinister about it. With Airfix promising a " wealth of new tools" for 2020 ,I suspect that they will be concentrating their resources on these items rather than the Vintage Classic range.

We will find out soon enough because I expect Airfix will include an announcement about the Vintage Classics when the full 2020 range is announced

I didn't say it was, I was merely making an observation.

I know you didn't. And. I never accused you of saying it. I was simply making my own observation.

Well it's now the end of 2019, no BOAC vintage classic concorde and it seems to have been pulled from Airfix's website.  Disappointed doesn't begin to cover it :(

Sure about that?

Tried clicking on it ?   (error 404)

 

I wonder if it's being reintroduced, just not as a vintage classic ?  (  ie a full price release seeing as it's a bit popular)

I tried that. Same result.

Then I tried entering Concorde / Concorde Vintage Classics in search. No results. It's gone!

Of course, with the imminent publication of the 2020 programme, I would expect some sort of announcement then

It's not a great state of affairs but given the fiorthcoming announcements and the chief executive's publicly expressed opinion that the whole of Hornby's web presence is in serious need of redevelopment, I don't think anything that happens on the Airfix website between now and 6 January is necessarily a reliable guide to the future. Be brave and let's see what we see  on 6 Jan.

All I'm getting is: "This product is restricted and can be only viewed by specific customers".

Possibly, if the 'classic range' is being throttled back or phased out.  I personally didn't think the price point of the classic range reflected the nature of the kits being sold, so it could easily transfer across - given the classic Concorde originally had a price point of £18.99.
