    Loris , but it is exactly the same kit. I mean the Airfix one. BILEK re-boxes many of old kits that aren't offered any longer by the main manufacturers.

    All is fine Loris, I understand you totally.. But what would you do if you didn't find the Airfix one? I can see two solutions only. Either you can buy the BILEK kit ot scratch build it yourself.Am I right?

    Or you could hope that it's been rereleased.

    :lol: @ Vick - A styrene snob indeed. :lol:



    It looks like there is a brand new 2010 release.

    Fairey Battle (A03032) Model Kit and Accessories by Airfix

    Hannants has it listed for £7.99 Airfix AX03032 - listed as a future release.

    I agree...... Today I could have a look at the new Airfix 2010 catalogue. But I have gone through Dragon and Zvezda ones only. I'll do it the next time.

    Airfix announced their 2010 releases on December 23, 2009. :)

    You probably just missed it. It happens - no big deal.
