The 2008 UK Airfix catalogue features model-making kits for Doctor Who and Wallace and Gromit along with the typical military vehicles and soldiers the Airfix brand is famous for. The high-quality 97 page catalogue was aimed at the UK market and is packed with wonderful photographs. Below are a few sample scans.
Doctor Who. The cover features a cheeky appearance from the Tardis to make the first letter ‘i’ of ‘Airfix’.
I’m pleased to add these five new UK ads for leading model kit producer Airfix. The adverts, from 1982 and 1983, promote some of the kits available at the time as well as the Airfix Modellers Club. The final ad is a Boots the chemist promotion offering a 25% seasonal discount.
You can see my main Airfix post here containing a number of International adverts.
This 1983 French market catalogue for the famous Airfix brand is full of eighties model-making goodness from Star Wars to Dukes of Hazzard to the Fall Guy to space themes, nature and racing cars. The following scans are a non-exhaustive look at just some of the pages from this great catalogue.
Scalecraft Model kits were produced by the Eldon toy company in the UK from the late 1950s up to 1977 when they were taken over by Airfix. Typical Scalecraft sets featured cars, military vehicles, boats and aeroplanes. They came as ‘snap-together’ kits and were sometimes motorised.
