.: Airfix Boxart

Airfix is a UK manufacturer of plastic scale model kits of aircraft and other subjects. In Britain, the name Airfix is synonymous with the hobby, a plastic model of this type is often simply referred to as "an airfix kit" even if made by another manufacturer. The brandname Airfix was selected to be the first alphabetically in any toy catalogue. Founded in 1939 by a Hungarian businessman Nicolas Kove, Airfix was owned by Humbrol from 1986 until Humbrol's financial collapse on 31 August 2006. As of 2007, Airfix is currently owned by Hornby.

Many artists have produced artwork for Airfix kit packaging, most famously Roy Cross.
