Hornby buys Airfix

In a deal thet’s been rumoured for a while, Hornby has bought Airfix (and Humbrol, another report I read said). There’s no mention of the Heller held moulds, the non-release of which drove Airfix into bankruptcy in the first place. I’d like to see that resolved and more of their classic kits re-released.

At the moment neither airfix.co.uk or airfix.com are up, But Hornby’s site has an item about the acquisition.
