Airfix Magazines

By Brian Cameron

Anyone who is enthused by Rob Morgan’s comments can find a selection of issues on the Internet Archive:

I remember many of the articles about converting Airfix figures (and have copies of some), often using plasticene and the use of a mysterious ‘banana oil’ to set it — I never did track it down as a boy. An excellent magazine which provided much inspiration. I was very pleased some years ago to meet the editor, Chris Ellis. I’m pleased to say that he’s still quite active, particularly in railway modelling.
