hi all,
"But now people can put Great Yarmouth’s adopted warship HMS Dauntless on their mantelpiece, with the unveiling of a new Airfix model of a Type 45 destroyer."

Should have marked it up to £120.00, then the good folk of Yarmouth might be more inclined to buy it at 'half price'!

£60.00 just for a plastic kit that you can't do anything with! Was a time when Airfix kits were two bob!

Jenny Morgan,
A vane, a boat, but not a
bird.

If ignorance is bliss, then
why aren't there more happy
people about?

I was thinking exactly the same as Jenny Morgan...

How much?

Should be more like £19.99
Now, shall we guess where they are made? Not the UK...

I had (and still have) an Airfix slot car racing set, from 1966. The cars were  based on their 1/32nd scale model cars, but with a small 12 volt motor inside and Ackerman steering. All british made.

The detail was far greater than their scalectric equivalent, and the replacement bodies were cheap to buy too.

I eventually upgraded the set to 6 lanes, with banked curves and hump back bridges. I think I had about 15 cars, but not sure what state their tyres will be in!
Still in loft.  




best regards, Richard.
I can't wait to be back on our boat on
the Broads.
