Rated 5 out of 5 Great kits; bargain price...and super service! I had been thinking of buying one of the kits in this set (the Hampden) for a while and when I saw it as part of this set for the same price which meant effectively three free kits plus paints, glue and brushes it was too good a bargain to miss! The click and collect service worked like dream, one to remember for the future and the shop staff very friendly and helpful. Really looking forward to making this set...thoroughly recommended! 27 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Mr Airfix Victoria cross heroes gift set. This set is great value. 4 different planes with glue and paints. Should keep an avid model maker busy for more than a few days. 27 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Great price for these 4 iconic kits Superb that Airfix and the IWM have collaborated on honouring the VC recipients through this 4 plane set. Its good value at the full price so at 50% off this is an absolute steal. The kits do need a degree of care and concentration to complete if you are fussy, but just having a go at a kit is really rewarding and with the paints, brushes + glue in the box you've got everything you need. Highly recommended. 03 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Great value Super value - includes basic colours - so ideal for beginners. The level of competency - particularly for the Hampden is high so not for small ones 06 December 2013
