As a lifelong lover of Airfix I have always been astonished by the scope of plastic scale models produced by this British company whose name has become synonymous with the hobby, a plastic model is often simply referred to as "an Airfix kit" even if made by another manufacturer.
Airfix is the oldest UK manufacturer of plastic scale model kits and has been producing kits for the mass market since 1952. The Vintage Airfix website is an historical reference site that lists the contents of all the Airfix catalogues from 1962 to the present day. Each kit listed on Vintage Airfix has the catalogue, or patent number, that the kit appears as and which catalogue it appears in.
Why the need for funding?
Due to recent redundancy from my full-time job I'm having to rearrange my priorities. The money raised here will pay for the web hosting for one year then after that I will be back to paying for the hosting myself. This means that Airfix enthusiasts worldwide can continue to use the sites service and I can not worry about where to find the money for the hosting bill for a year.
