Synopsis

Synopsis

With the aid of stringy glue and scalpel-sliced fingers, young and old have turned display cabinets and bedrooms into mini-museums, or tiny battlefields. This book looks at the fascinating tale of this British company - a pioneer in the world of modelling - as well as its products, its changing fortunes over the years, and its links with popular culture. Accompanied by color images, Trevor Pask explores this thriving pastime, allowing Airfix kit lovers to indulge in a nostalgic journey and those new to the hobby an intriguing insight into its history.
Praise

Praise

"Airfix Kits is a sharp little book about the venerable British model kit company. It's a brisk 56 pages with oodles of color photographs. Written with experience and humor, it's apparent that the author is a long-time modeler... There are more voluminous and focused Airfix books in print (these are referenced in the bibliography), but Shire Books' Airfix Kits fills a niche. Readable in one sitting, it's a concise history at a low price—an ideal book for the hobbyist wishing to save time and money for that next model kit." - Andrew Brozyna, Ferrous Lands
