Airfix have reduced the price of the three versions of their line of 1/48 Canberra's by around 50%. In other words buy two kits for the old retail price of one kit. They were originally priced at 29.99 each. Airfix have reduced them to 14.99. If you're living in the UK, if your order total exceeds 40, you are offered free postage. Can't be bad. I have ordered mine already. Check out the red SALE link on the Airfix homepage, listed below.

Airfix have a very tempting offer at the moment to subscribe to the magazine next year. For new members they are offering a double kit of their recently released 1/72 Mig 17 and the F-86 Sabre to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Korean war. This became the first significant armed conflict of the Cold War.

Some interesting News via Facebook (and the Airfix Page) of the launch of a New magazine bearing the company's name.

The Bf 110C was the first version of the Bf 110 to be equipped with Daimler Benz engines. At the altitudes it had to operate in order to protect the bombers it would prove to be increasingly vulnerable to British and later American fighter aircraft due to its lack of manoeuvrability. The "D" version came with additional fuel tanks for increased range.
The new tool Messerschmitt Bf110C-2/C-4 has hit the shops. Not much information or pictures on the Airfix website, but there are a few sprue shots circulating around some of the other forums sites. Very reasonable price though. I will update when there are some sprue shots

Arguably, it was Airfix who started it all, therefore it seems to be appropriate to begin this series of reports from the Nuremberg Trade fair with them

Under the new owners, Hornby, the new Airfix website has just been launched.
Hornby who took over the Airfix and Humbrol brands after the near extinction of these two modelling legends have redesigned the new web page.
  • Diorama sets
Airfix are back, thanks to Hornby who saved them from certain extinction. Airfix have released four new sets, well nearly new, as they are repackaging some of their older kits as diorama sets. The pre-formed bases can be painted to provide a diorama area to place the models in each set onto. Hopefully these sets will tempt a new generation of model builders into the fold.
The wait is almost over for Airfix's 1/72 scale kit of the TSR-2, Britain's potentially world-beating aircraft that was cancelled by the Labour government in the 1960s. After 40 years, the TSR.2 remains one of the most controversial aircraft projects in history, sounding the death-knell many famous names in the British aircraft industry.
There's plenty for Spitfire fans to be excited about as Airfix have released pictures of the early test-mouldings of their forthcoming 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk. IXc.
