Airfix heads 2,400 years into future

Model maker Airfix is looking to the future of its business – 2,400 years into the future to be precise.

The company, famous for its fiddly plastic reproductions of World War II planes, tanks and battleships, is launching a range of robot fighters from the 45th Century.

It seems that the Spitfire and Lancaster Bomber no longer cut it with today’s younger generation, brought up on a diet of Power Rangers and Pokemon.

And in a move that will appal purists, the new models will be snapped together instead of requiring painstaking, and often frustrating, gluing.
