The MTSC Guide to Airfix 1/72nd scale Diorama & Gift Sets

It's hard to believe that Airfix in one form or another has been around for 75 years. There is no doubt that at some point every modeler out there was exposed to an Airfix kit not to mention all the plastic figure collectors who owe a big debt to Airfix especially in 1/72nd scale. Countless hours building kits and playing with soldiers came about because of companies like this. Airfix Diorama & Gift sets offer complete battles all in one box that includes paints and glue to build and paint each particular set. A great introduction for youngsters to collecting toy soldiers, model kits & historical hobbies!
