Airfix 1/32nd Multipose Re-released

 
 
Those of you who are old enough to remember sticking these together back in the early 80's, will be pleased to find out that they're being re-released as part of the Airfix D-Day 70th anniversary range this year. At the moment, it's just the British infantry set but the Germans and Americans are on the way. I don't know if the Japanese or USMC will be revived but it's a good start, with some of the 1/32nd scale tank and vehicle kits possibly over the horizon too.

I originally wanted to use these for Normandy Firefight, alongside some of the Airfix 1/32nd scale soft plastic figures, but that plan was shelved when I googled for second hand kits and fell off my chair at the asking price! The now kits are priced at £9.99 so well within the affordable range, even if you only make four figures out of each set. I might give this another look as an alternative to 1/35th scale.

  1. Oh good heavens, this takes me back. I had the 1/32nd 8th Army set, and I *think* I had the DAK. Nice release price too.

  2. I had all of them, except for the late war Germans.

    I'm sure the Perry's were inspired by the DAK and 8th Army kits!
