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!

  3. excellent, have to pick some of these up
