AIRFIX

Airfix is recognized as the number one "HO" 1/72 figure manufacturer of the 1960s-1970s. Their figures were the first to be mass produced and sent around the world waiting for kids to find them in hobby shops. I still remember waiting for new sets to come out. It was great to be a kid in the 50s-60s. Now the many box variations are eagerly sought after by collectors. Airfix was sold in the late 1970s to a conglomeration (CPG CO) then on to Heller and Humbrol. Humbrol has released a few sets over the last 15 years. Also Heller, HaT Industrie, and IMEX have released Airfix 1/72 sets in their own packaging. Please use the above link to visit Eric Williamson's Airfix web site. This is the best site of its kind and there is much information to be absorbed and enjoyed.

TYPE SEVEN HUMBROL BOXES CIRCA 1980s. When Humbrol put out figures they used up the stock on hand in the factory and then made the figures in new colors. Hence yellow Waterloo figures are hard to come by in these boxes. Then about 1990 Humbrol started using even more new colors.

1990s-2000s Issue boxes by HäT, Heller, Hornby & Humbrol

As you can see several companies have had access to the old Airfix molds. Currently (2008) Hornsby is putting some sets out again (unfortunately including the old ESCI WWII British in a box now marked AIRFIX!!!). We will list the sets by their old Airfix numbers, keeping in mind that some of the later makers used their own numbering system. Figure colors may vary almost by random.

VALDEMAR

12.00 Valdemar 001 Medieval Army on the March; 14 figures (mounted figure represents Robert the Bruce) + 1 horse and 20 accessories. Made from two molds we have sets with the horse sprue in gray and the other sprue in greens and blues or the horse sprue in darker green with the other sprue in green. So no set will have matching colors throughout. Also there is no box or packaging. Care will need to be taken when cutting the pikes & lances from the sprue as they are tight against the massive sprue ( see inset picture above lower right). Still a nice effort for a company that has been making only resin figures until now.(2 IN STOCK)
