Airfix acquired the first plastic injection moulding machine in the U.K. in the mid 1940's and was soon manufacturing vast numbers of plastic toys. By 1981, when Airfix's financial woes led to takeover and the end of all production save for plastic model kits, it had made a wide variety of toys, games, arts, crafts, building sets, racing sets, model trains and even Meccano and Dinky toys. Profusely illustrated with over three hundred photographs, Forty Years of Airfix Toys gives the full history of the Airfix toy range:


  • Year-by-year listings of all the toys sold by Airfix
  • Betta Bilda building sets
  • Car racing and train sets
  • Arts and crafts
  • Meccano and Dinky Toys
  • Logos and packaging
  • Airfix's magazines
  • Full listing of Airfix pattern numbers
