My little homage to Airfix. As a kid in the late 70's to early 80's, hundreds of hours were spent playing and painting these wonderful models. Esci 1/72 scale figures comes to a close second but Airfix will always be a first love. Particularly the American Civil War range. Though hideously inaccurate, along with some crazy strange poses, there is something about them...Maybe it's nostalgia. Donno, whenever I see that round red, white and black Airfix logo, it brings back some very fond memories. I played with other toy soldier/playsets but these "little men" from the UK will always be number one.
