Airfix Models Kickstarter Program a Success

 

Since sometime last year, Airfix has been using Kickstarter to give modelers a chance to see reissued kits. It's been hit or miss, many of the kits are older molds - really old molds, and haven't been reissued in many decades. But that doesn't always make them a winner, or a kit people desire again.

The kits range from figures, animals, aircraft, cars and others. A wide range of model subjects. The plus side is it let's the modelers. like you or me, indicate the choices of kits we'd like to see, and some we don't.

This means Airfix gets a chance of releasing a model kit that modelers really want, rather than guessing, and throwing a dart at a dart board and hoping the model kit sells and modelers really buy it. It's a win for Airfix and for modelers.

A couple of other model companies have tried doing this with Kickstarter, and some others have been thinking about using it. But now Airfix had truly had a successful campaign, and that's a very good thing for the modeling hobby. I commend Airfix for sticking with it and for keeping on trying till they hit upon a kit that meets the criteria for sales. I hope this encourages other model companies to stick with it and keep trying. This will become part of the future for model kits.

The model kit that hit the mark is the Airfix 1968 1:72 Beagle Basset kit. While I don't build many airplanes myself, it looks like an interesting model. So if you want one, there still might be time to order, GO TO THIS LINK.

Bookmark their pages because they will offer other models in the coming years for possible production and to be reissued. But you have to keep up with them, they're on a roll.

Once again, congratulations Airfix on a successful Kicktarter program!
