New classics from Airfix


A brace of new model releases have arrived in the Vintage Classics range from Airfix.

You can relive your model making days of years gone by thanks to the latest additions to the Vintage Classics range from Airfix. These are classic kits, re-issued. First up we have a Tiger 1 in 1:76 scale, coming with 68 parts and measuring 82mm x 49mm. It has a skill rating of just 2 making it suitable for all modellers from the age of eight upwards. It costs just £5.99. To pit against the Tiger 1, what could be better than a Sherman M4 Mk1 tank in the same range. Coming in a 1:76 scale kit with 55 parts and measuring 75mm x 35mm this is also a 2 rated build for modellers aged eight and above. It costs £5.99 as well.
If you want something a little more challenging, not to mention physically larger, then how about a late version Tiger 1 in 1:35 scale. This one has a skill rating of 3 making it suitable for ages 14 and upwards. It measure 241mm x 102mm and costs £41.99. Also on 1:35 scale, here’s another German WWII tank, the Panzer IV Ausf.H mid-war version. It’s also a skill 3 project, measuring 201mm x 82mm and costs £37.99. All the models are available from the Airfix website at
