PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
A boy’s own delight: an incredibly realistic simulation of an Airfix kit’s box, this ingenious hinged tin is filled with mint humbugs and makes a fun, practical keepsake. Conjuring memories of many happy hours making models from the iconic brand; for generations of children, a first introduction to the mechanics of flight. Founded in 1939 by Hungarian refugee Nicholas Kove (1891-1958), it wasn’t until the 1950s that Airfix began making the plastic construction kits now synonymous with the brand. Starting with a tractor, it was in 1952 that Airfix first launched a Spitfire kit and still one of the best-selling kits of modern Airfix today. This tin reproduces a kit to make a 1:72 scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Ia.

Pure novelty. This was a gift for my father, who is a fan of Airfix, old planes and mints, so this was quite the most perfect gift.

Thought this amusing as my husband would not want to build this. However there is a sticker on the back telling you about the mintoes, would have been better to put it in the tin.
