Who is the manufacturer Airfix?

The first model of miniature aircraft signed Airfix is created in 1953, a kit made of injected polystyrene. The Supermarine Spitfire Mk1 1/72 is the best-selling in the world. The airfix models have been a phenomenal success since the 60s.

Severy categories of models integrate the Airfix catalog, including scale models of cars, trucks, boats and planes. In 1986, the company was acquired by one of its biggest competitors, Heller.
