Hot on the heels of their Blenheim Mk.IF (reviewed here), Airfix just released another classic British aircraft – and arguably one of the most beautiful jet fighters ever designed.
The kit comes in the usual Airfix-style box and contains
Airfix just released their 2019 catalogue, and amidst the usual re-releases of all sorts of stuff, there are are some new kits - and what looks like to be new cooperations between Airfix and other manufacturers. So let's take a look at some of [...]

The Airfix 1/48 Blenheim IF. Great kit (full review at Modeling Madness on Thursday). Easy project if you commit the revolutionary act of following the instructions.
Here are a few photos of my final builds for the year (not strictly true but I cant show you the very last one yet!) which are the Airfix 1:48 Sea Fury and the Airfix 1:48 Gloster Meteor FR.9.
The Sea Fury has the Barracuda wheels and cockpit p[...]
I want to start out by thanking Martin and his staff for hosting such a wonderful website where we can display our work. I also want to thank Paul Barber @yellow10 for coming up with a great idea to commemorate the 100 Years of Service provided [...]
