Airfix is the oldest UK manufacturer of plastic scale model kits and has been producing kits for the mass market End Date: Monday Sep BST.
In the first Armoured Fighting Vehicles appeared in the ever-expanding range of Airfix kits. The s and s are considered by many as the golden age of kit building and the enthusiastic schoolboys and young men building these kits became known as the Airfix Generation. The hobby went into decline in the s as plastic kits gave way to video games, but the hobby has recently undergone a revival as the original members of the Airfix Generation, now at the end of careers and family commitments, take a nostalgic look back at their childhoods.
Some, like the author, will become once again absorbed by the hobby, but many will be content to buy a few old kits — others are coming to the hobby from an entirely new perspective. All will be delighted to find a new book that tells the early days of the hobby from a model tank perspective. Tom Cole returned to the hobby of military modelling after a long career in the Royal Air Force. A regular winner at national model making competitions, Tom has had numerous articles published in commercial magazines.

They were notoriously fiddly to glue together But generations of children spent their precious pocket money on Airfix plastic scale model kits. And as the firm celebrates its 70th birthday it could be in for a big revival Airfix had actually been going for 10 years, selling inflatable rubbber toys, when the first construction kit – a Ferguson Model T tractor – hit the high street in It was originally meant to be a fully-made replica but was so fiddly to construct the firm’s founder, Hungarianborn businessman Nicholas Kove, had the bright idea of selling it in kit form.

Since I was not conscious of Airfix packaging styles prior to , I would have been under thirteen then, I have relied very heavily on the work carried out by John, Steve, et al. Post , I have a large resource of details collected by myself at the time concerning Airfix packaging styles which has always been a particular interest of mine in relation to Airfix. The following is, therefore, an updated version of the various articles written over the last five years and brings the story fully up-to-date.
First a brief overview of Airfix packaging. This entailed putting the kit in one of the then new transparent polythene bags stapled to an illustrated header made by folding a rectangle of paper into four. Thus was born the famous 2 bob shilling bagged kit which reached its zenith in the glorious Type 3 packaging see later.
Series 1, and for a few years Series 2 kits, would hang, tantalisingly in their poly bags, in front of our eyes in the shops until the arrival of the short-lived blister pack. In , the innovative blister pack was introduced. This overcame the main drawback to the bags — the bits could get broken if roughly handled before opening. Although Airfix no longer use these two types of packaging for single kits, variations are still used with Starter sets.
Series 3 and above, plus Series 2 after a few years, were all sold in boxes.
