Airfix was founded in 1939 by Nicholas Kove, a refugee from Hungary who originally manufactured rubber inflated toys.
Since 1952, Airfix has been producing model kits for eager, nimble-fingered children to build and enjoy. Through the faithful reconstruction of countless planes and other vehicles, Airfix model kits have been capturing imaginations for generations. Though very few of us will ever get the chance to fly in a Spitfire, Lancaster or Red Arrow Hawk, by building these brilliant models youngsters from the age of eight can explore another world and – without even realizing it – acquire skills such as planning, engineering, painting, history, dexterity and more. Building and creating with Airfix provides a ‘three-dimensional’ pastime that will last a lifetime.
Of course, Airfix isn’t just about aircraft. There are also ships, cars, tanks, buildings, rockets and soldier figures in a variety of sizes. Plus there’s a huge selection of standalone kits, starter sets and gift packages, complete with everything you need to get started. You can check out the range on the Airfix website www.airfix.com, but it’s also available to buy in hundreds of shops throughout the UK.
To enjoy the full Airfix experience, the best tools for the job – including paint shades, glues and other great accessories – are available from Humbrol, Airfix’s sister company.
So if you’re looking for something to keep you occupied during the summer holidays – and from just GBP 5.99 too – what could be better than a lifetime of fun with Airfix?
