Airfix Beagle Basset

And for the now obligatory “wildcard” third choice.


Not a Helicopter, nor a Jet, but a prop plane. but to be fair it is British, Military, and post war. It is the Beagle Basset 206 navigation and communications trainer. It is also in a plain white box…

Last year Airfix started a project (Kit Starter) to gauge interest in re-releasing some very old kits. The only one that garnered enough interest to justify a release was this, hence the plain packaging.


the plastic itself is modern, though the moulds ancient, and clearly refurbished judging by the minimal amount of flash present


The instructions are a facsimile of the original, how I miss the written explanations that used to come in every kit. Only one colour scheme, a pity as the kit was offered at various times in a red white colour scheme of the Queens flight as well.


The decals are thoroughly modern though.
