 YourExclusiveClub model.
2007 was a very busy year and the Airfix team had taken the opportunity to attend a number of exhibitions -Air Shows in particular - to promote the new acquisition and meet the many Airfix fans and hobbyists at thesame time.
RAF Fairford in Gloucester was one such venue on the occasion of theRoyal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) over the weekend of 14th and15th July. The Airfix marquee proved a particular draw, situated alongside the company’s Roadshow truck, and the Airfix team had activities tosuit everyone.Junior enthusiasts, under the instruction and supervision of the Airfix  team, were invited to an Airfix workshop, where they built and painted their own plane, before carefully transporting it home after allowingboth glue and paint to dry!
For adult model builders and collectors, the Airfix team were pleased toanswer questions about the new Airfix collection on show, some modelsalready available but many others in prototype form prior to productionlater this year. Many of the Airfix kits on display reflected the real-lifeversions flying all around us over the Show weekend, although definitelyless noisy!The mood was one of great enthusiasm, touched with relief, voiced bymodellers that Airfix was once more back in safe hands and destinednot only to continue but also to grow in future years.The National Railway Museum Open Day at Shildon in County Durhamover the weekend of 11th and 12th August provided an unusual venuefor an exceptional exhibition of Airfix models owned and displayed bySteve Donnelly from West Yorkshire.Whilst Steve had some models for sale, there were several highlycollectable mint and boxed pieces definitely not on offer, including thevery first Airfix model ever produced, the Ferguson Tractor.The construction kit was still in its original packaging with header cardboasting the contents as containing 50 components and cement. Therewas also a 1:32 scale Beach Buggy in its illustrated box; a Bond Bug,also boxed in 1:32 scale and an Ariel Arrow Motorbike.Steve had one item which reputedly, Airfix had at one time denied making- the Ton-Up-Tony, comprising a motorcycle construction kit, packagedin a colourful
box illustrating a speeding Tony heading for the M1! TheAirfix logo is very clear on the box, so we must assume it did
emanatefrom the factory.
Any feedback from knowledgeable Club memberswelcome!
