Another good year for Airfix Spitfires

The Airfix 2010 Catalog

I love what Hornby has done with Airfix…..

First was the release of the 1/48 Spitfire Mk. I in 2007, then the Club Kit 1/48 Spitfire Mk. XVIe bubble top in 2008. This year, 2009 brought new toolings of the 1/72nd Mk. IXc and a Mk. XIX.

Apparently, all that was a warm-up….

The 2010 catalog includes….

– A new tool 1/72nd scale Spitfire Mk. Ia
– New tools of the Mk. XII and Seafire XVIIc
– A Douglas Bader Spitfire Mk. Va

My son will be interested in new 1/48 toolings of the Bf-109E and E-Trop also.

There’s also a nice BoB 70th Anniversary set with an He-111, Bf-109E, Spitfire Mk. I and Hurricane Mk. I, all in 1/72nd scale.

To say I am pleased with Airfix’s 2010 plans would be an understatement….

There are lots more kits for 2010- more new toolings and releases of the classic kits. Of course, with all that Spitfire plastic, who needs anything else?
