Airfix 1:76 (OO/HO) scale figure sets


Recommended Posts

These old sets are being reissued. Are they still the same un-paintable, un-bashable polythene or are they now a better-quality plastic? Does superglue work with them?

I am thinking of getting the RAF ground crew set, as much for its bicycle and trolley acc as anything else.

Our dear departed @phoenix54 gave me the secret to painting them. Priming them with diluted PVA glue (I now give them two coats) and then using normal primer. It works quite well for me anyway. On a previous build I did find a glue which worked quite well but now I've forgotten what it was. neat PVA works well for attaching them to a base so that might be the one.
