Yes, way back in the mid-1980's. It is a very rare kit to find, and I am still searching for one in the box and sealed up to compliment my collection.

Re: Hands up all those that started with Airfix?

True here as well. Started of at about seven years when my Dad helped me build a great RAF Buccaneer. He built, then fixed up my stuff ups. Turned out great, with his patience and after locking me in the cupboard for a while... I to found a love for the smell of the glue, graduating to the love of petrol when ever we filled up the family car.
The model lasted for many years but sadly met with a mid air collision due to a misplaced penalty kick in the bedroom. Even after all these years one still remembers.

Re: Hands up all those that started with Airfix?

My first kit was an Airfix. A BA 747. Bought it on a schools trip to Heathrow. (must be a right of passage as most people I know seem to have had the same experience!)
I;d have been about 7.I was so proud of it, though with the best part of 38 years hindsight, my modeling abilities back then were woeful.
Thing is... at the age of 44, theres something really magical about opening a kit and seeing all the sections laid out on their Sprues, a decal sheet all bright and shiney, uncreased instructions, all sitting there in a clear bag in the box, just crying out to be built.
I love model kits! The bigger the better!

Re: Hands up all those that started with Airfix?

I think I started with a dam busters Lancaster Bomber and grew from there to my current 50+ models. Now I have discovered die cast planes its really hard to do both...

Re: Hands up all those that started with Airfix?

Well I would normaly say yes. But I found out that a Monogram kit was my number one model...
But I really want to get back into modeling soon. But it is kind of hard to find time with small kids...

Re: Hands up all those that started with Airfix?

Well I am lucky enough to have an awesome Dad who is obsessed with anything Aviation.
Which explains why I am now obsessed with Aviation.
It started for me when we went to my first Airshow which was Air Fete/RAF Mildenhall back in the mid 90's.
Ever since then we have gone to hundreds of airshows together.
Even now im 23, work full time and dont get much time off we still managed to get to have 10 Airshow days to relax enjoy our joint hobby this year.
My first kit was the Airfix Spitfire out of the BBMF set which my Late Nan bought me.
I still have this on my shelf as My Nan bought her for me and to be honest I dont think I did a bad job on it .
