Yesterday afternoon I came home to this surprise. Sue had picked up the Daily Mail newspaper from WH Smiths which was offering this Airfix 1/72nd scale Spitfire Mk.1a model kit free. The newspaper proclaimed that the model kit was worth £9.99 quite a jump from the 2/6 kits I used to buy with my pocket money. Thank you Sue.

Later I was searching the internet for some images and came across this Limited Edition box art with Daily Mail logo in the lower right hand corner. My free kit is plain (without the logo) and I couldn't help thinking how rare such a Limited Edition box is or could be in the future.
It is disappointing to read rumours that Hornby (the owners of Airfix) are looking to sell the brand.
