The Halifax leaflets were issued from late until and were issued separately to the catalogues. The early catalogues, 1st to 5th Editions also had special non-illustrated leaflets included in them. After this the annual leaflets were either included or available separately on the counter. The first mention I can find is in a kit advert in the April Airfix Magazine. Being the first catalogue it is possibly the most sought after.
Since I started collecting Airfix paperwork in mid , until recently I did not have a copy. 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.
It ran to 32 pages, including covers and measured mms by mms. The covers were in full colour but the insides were in black and white and two shades of blue. The inside back cover has a three quarter page advert for Airfix Magazine which shows the November magazine. Details of around kits were given. It was double-sided and measured mms by mms in portrait orientation. It was being sold with a 1st Edition catalogue so I believe it must be the first of two price lists for the 1st edition.
The new Motor Racing sets were on the back cover. It was announced in Airfix Magazine for September The 1st edition still appears in kit adverts in Airfix Magazine until December , when the 3rd Edition was announced! 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. Only 3 kits are listed as not being in the catalogue. More kits were doubled up to allow new ones to be inserted.
The insides were still in shades of blue. 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.
It may have also been included in the last 2nd editions sold. Two further variants were produced. The first featured extra kits plus the three new Dogfight Doubles and the Dennis Fire Engine, which was moved to Series 5.
The inside covers featured colour reproductions of some the new Type 3 paintings. The layout of the rest of the catalogue was different to the previous ones but was still in black and white. Inside was a new four page leaflet in yellow mms by mms , slightly larger than the blue ones. It still stated over kits, but no mention was made of glue in series 3, 4, 5 and 6 kits see CS Around the same time the first of the B leaflets appeared which replaced the 9th edition Halifax ones.
The only difference apart from the colour and mention of Woolies was the price of the paint packs — only 1 shilling 5p in Woolworths!
There were a few extra kits listed and they were slightly larger than the yellow one at mms by mms. It was announced in the April Airfix Magazine. I have two, purchased new in One without the price first , one with the price second? I expect that there were four runs to cater for the longer period of the catalogue. Two blue price lists were issued, each showing the B model.
They were the same size as the yellow one but were in portrait mode. The back page showed the 5th Edition catalogue and the B price list. The listing was identical to the price list and was clearly intended to be a counter-top leaflet. The prices had also been increased. An orange version without prices was issued, plus one with Woolworths on. A fourth leaflet was issued which had several more kits added plus another price increase see CS A fifth leaflet which was also labelled had the 6th edition catalogue and leaflet on the back.
This was the last of the " Stirling" leaflets. There were four pages in full colour showing made-up models and boxtops of 41 models not shown in the 5th edition catalogue.
With so many new kits it is surprising that a new catalogue was not produced, presumably a colour insert was cheaper. I never saw a second issue 5th edition catalogue at the time but picked up several leaflets from counters.
The layout was similar to the previous one s but the extra space allowed for national insignias and airline markings. A blue price list, identical in size to the B one was issued with it, number P. Over kits were mentioned on the cover.
It was the last of the separate price lists. Two colour leaflets were also issued. One was clearly intended as an insert for the catalogue and it is shown as such on the back of the other leaflet. Both have on the front. The Insert was a 6 page leaflet with full colour cover and insides. The cover kits, with the exception of the Pan-Am were all in the catalogue.
Inside were photos and boxtops of 21 new models inc. Pan-Am Notable were the German Infantry and the first two Waterloo figure sets. It carried the catalogue number of INS. There were three issues. Woolworths on the front.
It was the same size as the 6th Edition and had the same number of pages. A separate counter-top leaflet was issued which also found its way into many of the catalogues. It was based on the first issue. There were three issues in all which only had minor variations in them. They were a six page fold-out, each page measuring mms by mms. It ran to 56 pages, excluding covers, and was numbered The six page fold-out leaflet measured mms by mms, slightly larger than the ones.
It was also numbered PL They were available with and without prices. The Type 4 logo also appeared for the first time on a leaflet see CS Two were issued which had slightly different prices due to a small reduction in Purchase Tax see CS It was printed in January and was now 64 pages, excluding covers. There were two leaflets. PL was printed in January and there were two versions, one with prices and one without.
Most ranges were now illustrated in Type 4 packaging. There were three issues of the leaflet. There were two copies, with and without prices. It had slightly revised prices see CS19 but no new models and one or two asterixes dropped. Only one leaflet was produced, the 1st Edition. There were two issues, one with prices and one without. In one of each I have a separate insert with new prices on and these were both reproduced in CS The magnificent Harrier picture graced the front cover.
Page size was now mms by mms. The cover pictures were by a Pete Kelly. I have a third variant which does not have a price on it but was printed in January I believe it was probably an export version because the inner back page about the Modellers Club was replaced with the back page of the 11th Edition. There were three issues of the first, the only difference I can see is that the Prinz Eugen is shown in series 6, then crossed out and put in series 5 and finally just shown in series 5.
The 2nd edition was numbered and had an all-white logo on the front. As far as I can tell it was unaltered from the 1st but contained separate price increase inserts see CS The catalogue was now A4 size and was printed in landscape mode.
Subsequent ones would be in portrait mode and apart from and would all be A4 size. There were two leaflets, the 1st Edition and 2nd also Both had prices see CS19 and page numbers included. The new McDonough Concorde adorned the cover of the 2nd Edition.
Oddly the Golden Hind is not listed in either leaflet despite being in the catalogue. Page numbers and prices were included. The Bengal Lancer occupied the entire front page.
