damn, that's a shame;.

it's like coca cola going bankrupt... it just isn't possible...

although airfix didn't release any worldbreaking kits the last few years in my opinion, still a shame, especially thinking of all the people who can now go and search for a new job ...

Did you see Jim's post yesterday that some company known for successfully bailing out failing companies may be coming to Airfix's rescue?
Sure hope so!!!!!!
