The Landing Craft, Vehicle, Personnel (LCVP) or Higgins boat was used extensively in amphibious landings in World War II. To celebrate the vehicle, Airfix will launch a 1:72 scale model in 2014.
Airfix will also launch a World War I Centenary range.
The Old Bill Bus was a familiar sight in Britain in 1914 with over 1,000 buses carrying out a variety of roles during the war. Airfix will release its model of the Old Bill Bus next year.
2014 also sees the 50th anniversary of the formation of the world-famous display team, and the RAF Red Arrows Hawk is one of the exclusive Red Arrows products to be released by Airfix.
The Airfix launch has already seen success with 25% more visits to the website compared to last year’s range announcement.
