The first listed exactly those models in the catalogue, though some were asterixed and was I think included in the catalogue as well as on the counter. There were no less than five leaflets issued, three price lists and two supplements. There were three issues. By now the catalogues had settled down into an annual routine and they tended to appear in model shops immediately after the January Toy Fairs or shortly thereafter.
The magnificent Harrier picture graced the front cover. Around the same time the first of the B leaflets appeared which replaced the 9 th edition Halifax ones. A separate counter-top leaflet was issued which also found its way into many of the catalogues. There were two issues, one with prices and one without. Both had prices see CS19 and page numbers included.
The inside covers featured colour reproductions of some the new Type 3 paintings. The cover pictures were by a Pete Kelly. The only difference apart from the colour and mention of Woolies was the price of the paint packs — only 1 shilling 5p in Woolworths! The cover kits, with the exception of the Pan-Am were all in the catalogue. The 2 nd edition was numbered and had an all-white logo on the front.
However, I did pick up several of the early light blue catalogue leaflets but I cannot say for certain whether they were included in the catalogue. The layout was similar to the previous one s but the extra space allowed for national insignias and airline markings. I have a third variant which does not have a price on it cstalogue was printed in January One without the price firstone with the price second? More kits were doubled up to allow new ones to be inserted.
Two colour leaflets were also issued. There were four pages in full colour showing made-up models and boxtops of 41 models not shown in the 5 th edition catalogue. Since I started collecting Airfix paperwork in miduntil recently I did not have a copy.
Page numbers and prices were included. I have two, purchased new in New Kits Catalogue — Being the first catalogue it is possibly the most sought after.
The new Motor Racing sets were on the back cover. Printed January it ran to 64 pages. It was announced in the April Airfix Magazine.
The insides were still in shades of blue. Several 4 page landscape mode leaflets were issued at around the same time, the front page of which incorporated the inside page of cataloggue 2 nd Edition, including the ‘thoughtful’ small boy. Two were issued which had slightly different prices due to a small reduction in Purchase Tax see CS The prices had also been increased.
The first mention I can find is in a kit advert in the April Airfix Magazine. Page size was now mms by mms. I never saw a second issue 5 th edition catalogue at the time but picked up several leaflets from counters.
In one of each I have a separate insert with new prices on and these were both reproduced in CS On the inside front cover is a drawing of a boy resting his head in his hands which would feature on the front of the third catalogue leaflet. It was double-sided and measured mms by mms in portrait orientation.
