Airfix Kits Paperback
by Trevor Pask
Part of the Shire Library series
With the aid of stringy glue and scalpel-sliced fingers, young and old have turned display cabinets and bedrooms into mini-museums, or tiny battlefields.
This book looks at the fascinating tale of this British company - a pioneer in the world of modelling - as well as its products, its changing fortunes over the years, and its links with popular culture.
Accompanied by color images, Trevor Pask explores this thriving pastime, allowing Airfix kit lovers to indulge in a nostalgic journey and those new to the hobby an intriguing insight into its history.

Review by ManipledMutineer
A little digested in its coverage of the 1970s but overall an excellent pocket history of this famous company.
