Airfix: Making HistoryAirfix: Making History tells the story of Airfix, manufacturers of everyone's favourite model making kits, in the year the company celebrates its 75th anniversary. The Royal Air Force Museum is an apt location to host the exhibition as many of the construction kits were modelled on pieces in the museum's collection. The largest manufacturer of plastic combs by 1947, Airfix branched out into toys and other domestic products and in 1952 embarked, with the little ship The Golden Hind, on producing kits, this was rapidly followed by the first of its aircraft kits, the 1:72 scale Spitfire in 1953. Older visitors will enjoy the nostalgia, younger viewers will be inspired to make their own.
