The Kit List 6 arrived from the printers yesterday.

Constant Scale 72 has started to arrive on members' doorsteps.
Lots of interesting articles including pictures of the new Vulcan!

As well as the 6-page Spitfire Special listing every Spitfire
produced by Airfix since 1955, it also contains 2 more articles
by Keith Melville about his days at Palitoy/Airfix.


This article comes from CS67 and precedes the CS70 one.

I hope it gives some insight into the pricing of Airfix models.
