Model Geek alert!

I know the Airfix renaissance has been going for a couple of years now, but I was particularly struck by it today as even more of their models had crowded onto the shelves.

The entry level kits are true pocket money models at only 4 quid. They may not be as detailed as some of the more exotic creations available today, but that’s not such a bad thing. And some of the subject matter is sometimes not made by anyone else- for instance, I haven’t seen the Matilda tank done by any other company. Dad will be pleased as well, the RAF Refuelling, Emergency and Recovery sets were great bases for kit bashing.

A few of the re-releases are already on my wish list (particularly the Vulcan), but what else should they produce? I want to see all their 1/32nd scale cars, the Bristol Bloodhound, the BV 141 that I’m currently building and all of their railway kits.
