Synopsis:

The 1960s and early 1970s might be called the vintage years of Airfix, when some of their best and most popular kits were produced. For ten years up to 1974, renowned artist Roy Cross produced some of the stunning paintings that appear on the boxes of Airfix kits of the era. Roy set the standard for such artwork, to the extent that many are still used today, four decades later. Roy Cross's The Vintage Years of Airfix Box Art contained a host of the paintings he prepared for Airfix, but the unearthing of many more images in old Airfix files has enabled this entirely fresh look at Roy's work to be presented, coinciding with the seventy-fifth anniversary of the first Airfix kit. Thus the remainder of Roy's ten years' work for Airfix is reproduced here.

About the Author: The author of over 30 books for children, in 1991 Gillian Cross won the Carnegie Medal for Wolf and has won both the Smarties Prize and the Whitbred Award for The Great Elephant Chase. She lives in Warwickshire, U.K.

Book Description The Crowood Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Airfix was started in 1939 and, since it produced its first plastic kit in 1949, has grown to be the United Kingdom s leading model kit manufacturer. Several generations of young and young-at-heart modellers have made Airfix kits and, despite turbulent times in the 1970s and 1980s when the company changed ownership several times, in the twenty-first century it goes from strength to strength under the wing of Hornby Hobbies.
