Airfix - Making History

1 June 2013 - 11 May 2014

Some of the original Airfix Packages on display

One of the paintings on displayThe Royal Air Force Museum London is now displaying a signature exhibition commemorating and celebrating the national institution that is Airfix.

In this exhibition the Museum charts the history of this Great British Institution by displaying original Box Art as well as Airfix’s most popular models from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s in London's Art Gallery.

An important part of the exhibition will be the examination of how Airfix has permeated the social fabric of the United Kingdom and how it has influenced the leisure activities of generations of young men and women since the company’s foundation - inspiring many to take up their own careers in the aviation industry.

By popular request the final day of this exhibition will now be 11th May, the day of IPMS Barnet's Hendon Model Show.

Please note: Regrettably the Art Gallery will be closed on 16th and 29th of April for a private views of this exhibition. We would like to apologise in advance for any disappointment that this may cause.
