Old box layout.

The picture is an thumbnail of one of earliest original Airfix Sherman box-art. Over the years, the bottom third of the picture has been edited out, erasing the dead German in the foreground.


The Airfix box layout history over the years

In the very beginning the small Airfix kits series 1 and 2 were packed in plastic bags with a paper label, followed by a hard-cover blister box with a carton backside.

Plastic bag - Boxing type 2 - 1959 until 1960 and type 3 - 1963 until 1973.

Are the latest boxtops misprints??

Airfix/2301/07.jpg Airfix/2301/04.jpg Airfix/2301/05.jpg Airfix/2301/06.jpg
21-06-2011 Airfix Scammell TRMU-30, or simply 'tank transporter', as the box states. The box picture at first seemed to be mirrored from the earlier boxes, till I spotted the markings on the Churchill. Also, on one of the sides the picture is printed upside down. BTW, the other side of the box states 'Made in India'. Meanwhile a friend from England pointed out another mistake on the same Airfix tank transporter kit box. On the last Indian version it is stated 'Scammel', the right spelling is 'Scammell' with double l. I still wonder whether is this a typo or a very clever way to avoid copyrights? - Ilian Filipov.

14-11-2011: Regarding the discusion concerning Airfix kit 2301 (Scammell tank transporter) mirrored box art, I bought one of these kits some time ago. It featured both mirrored boxart and the wrong spelling of 'SCAMMEL'. My kit is 'made in France' by Humbrol Group and I think it is of an earlier date than the 'made in India' kits. Adding to the rarity of this edition is the fact that it is labelled as 1:72 scale, while earlier and later editions state H0/00 and 1:76, respectively. I hope the information is of interest.

The sample of my Airfix 2302 Buffalo kit was made in India. It's a old simple kit with limited detail, but lots of flash. - Rodrigo A Nunez Rivolta

Note Webmaster: - Some years ago Airfix had buisiness problems, in that periode many kits were produced in other countries as China and India, the castings from this countries were (sometimes) poor. (Lot of flash etc.)

Kit 2321 - Churchill with 'Crocodille' flamethrower.

Airfix/2321/01.jpg Airfix/2321/02.jpg

Note: The kits 2320 and 2321 are not new kits. Only the parts for the 'Crab' and 'Crocodile' are new. Airfix works offensive and has made conversions of its old models. Thus, the old Sherman and the old Churchill were used to configure into the Sherman Crab and into to the Churchill Crocodile respectively.

Airfix release 2020

On 6th of January 2020 at 16.00 MET Airfix offer her programm for 2020 on the website

1/72 military vehicles

A major component of any Airfix model range, Military Vehicles received a boost recently with the mass re-introduction of a large number of 1/76th scale kits in the Vintage Classics range and as of 2019, a new collection of 1/35th scale models. With many of these models also appearing in the 2020 range, we are pleased to announce that we have some new tooling projects to report, with exciting developments in both 1/35th and 1/72nd scales. As already covered with the new Beginner Sets overview, the Airfix team have also produced standard kit versions of both the WWII Sherman Firefly and the mighty Tiger 1 in 1/72nd scale and these will be joined by a new Tractor and Compactor (used during wartime airfield construction), a Scammell Pioneer Recovery Tractor and a Scammell R100 Artillery Tractor. It is significant that these new kits have been developed in 1/72nd scale and serve as an illustrator for future development in the Military Vehicle kit sector.

My Heller LCVP is finally finished. This was one of my most intensive projects taking close to three months to complete. There is not a lot left of the original kit save the hull, decks and ramp and a couple of smaller items. Almost everything else from the original kit has been replaced because it was basically garbage and I had to add a lot of missing details. Al Magnus.

Bellona and Battle-HO-Rama diorama accessoires - Out of production.

Bellona sets from Micro Mould Plastics (Unifax group), have appeared in various header-cards over the years and were sold as Bellona, Micro Mold, and Almark. They also supplied some to Roco Minitanks. They actually came in a wide variety of colors, from pure white and grey to dark olive covering most shades of sand and fawn on the way!

Battleground sets were made in Stockport in the UK, by Power Play/Mainstream Products, but seem to have been mostly sold in the US, probably in order not to get into a major war with Bellona. Some sets are similar to Bellona's, others, however, are quite unique. There seem to have been at least 18 of which I have identified 13.

KIKO - Made in the Brasil - released after 1981

Airfix/kikocat.jpg Airfix/kiko-01.jpg

Posted by Luiz Edgard Marcondes from Brasil
Mr. A. Kikoler (KIKO) took REVELL to Brasil around 1960 and all (hundreds) of Revell kits produced worldwide are also produced in Brasil, even with similar boxtops.
At around 1980 the KIKO brandname was added, thus becoming REVELL KIKO and afterwards also HELLER KIKO, some 20 kits only, and AIRFIX KIKO, only 18 kits. From AIRFIX only the Sdkfz 234 in 1/76 and Rommel's Halftrack (Sdkfz 250/3) in 1/32 were made in Brasil. None of HELLER Armor was made in Brasil!
From REVELL no 1/76 armour kits were manufactured in Brasil, however, several of its 1/40 scale models from the 60s were, such as: M-48 bridge layer, T-34/85, 105 mm gun, Sherman tank, Self propeled gun, U.S. 6x6 truck etc.

Airfix - released in Taiwan - unknown company.
