 A nostalgic trip back in time

| | See all Finnersj's reviews (2)

Received this as a gift and it certainly brings back memories, from the evocative box art from Roy Cross, to the packaging in bags (to keep the costs down). The book is written by historian and Airfix authority Arthur Ward who has written a couple of other books on the subject. The book starts with a biography of the colourful founder of Airfix Nicholas Kove explaining how he moved from the largest producer of plastic combs in the country to high quality plastic kits. It then introduces the other key characters who helped shape the firm. The book has many interesting details such as the Bristol Superfreighter kit was sold onboard the plane to its travellers and how the origional Spitfire model was a poor representation but soon improved. It is well illustrated with many rare and interesting pictures which show the sheer diversity of models Airfix has produced apart from the military kits for which it is best known; these include garden birds, railway buildings and dinosaurs! Overall an excellent read but aimed at nostalgic adults rather than children despite the title.
