Ave atque vale: Airfix

As you probably saw yesterday, Airfix have gone into administration. Airfix models were a big part of my childhood and although I think Matchbox construction kits were better quality (in both imagination and execution), Airfix were clearly the market leaders. They gave me a lot of fun, and I'm sorry to see them go.

If you were reading this blog in June, you'll have seen me review a couple of Airfix products, the Hexagon and Platformer Robogear Terrain Sets. If you want them, now would probably be a good time to go out and get them. (Just don't go looking in Christies in St. Andrews: I cleaned them out.)
