Greetings everyone. A few weeks ago I received in the mail a package of mainly Airfix figures. I paid $20 for the lot. They had advertised Vintage plastic toy soldiers, Germans, British and others on eBay. They are mostly World War II plastic figures. When I looked at the pictures I noticed that the Germans where mostly Airfix Italian Infantry. These figures are 1/32 in scale.
I went through the box and divided the figures into about 10 different groups.
Most of the figures were Airfix but some where from other brands.
One of the bigger groups was of Airfix British 8th Army.
The next group was of Airfix Afrika Korp figures.
The next group was Airfix British Commandos.
The next group was Airifx British Infanty.
The next group of figures was Airfix German Infantry.
The next group was of some Airfix Gurkhas.
The next group was Japanese Infantry. It looks like all the poses are here.
Besides the World War II Airfix figures there was some Modern Germans and some British.
There was 24 Italian Infantry inside the box.
There are 7 poses in the Airfix Italian set.
I have been looking for some more Airfix Italians for a while. I think this set was one of the last World War II 1/32 scaled figure sets that Airfix made.
Here are some Vintage Western figures that I picked up. I think they are a mixture of Crescent and Cherilea figures.
I purchased this used Ultimate Soldier 1/32 Japanese Zero for $25.00. It is missing a couple of pieces I think. I want to add this to a diorama that I plan on making later this year.
I received this W. Britain Collector’s Club Viking figure about 2 months ago. The last picture has a Conte Viking figure that I painted.
Rodion Makheav sent me some preview pictures of Warhansa sets. I also found a few more. Most of these sets should be available in by the end of March.
I think these figures are about Conan the Barbarian. Conan was one of my favorite comics to read growing up.
These looks like another Conan inspired set.
This figure appears to be of Lenin.
This figure is of Harald Hardrada the King of Norway form 1046 to 1066. He is part of the 1066 Saga for the Throne of Britain. Harald lived a very interesting and adventurous life. He met his end at the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066.
Here are the World War II Russian Infantry again.
Here are some figures from Runecraft Miniatures. I think they are part of Publius. They make some interesting figures in 1/32 scale. I don’t know when these will be available to USA customers.
You can find the Publius Saxons again on eBay. This time they are in blue.

Thank you Mike. An awesome review. You got a great Airfix job lot to improve your dioramas. I really love the new Russian sets . The sculpt is superb… Even the Conan set is awesome. The same as the film. And the vikings… what a wonderful characters for a diorama. Thank you for sharing. Regards. José
Thanks for stopping by Jose. It is exciting to see what is going to be the next set. Airfix was the first company that I started to collect as a kid. Their figures still stand out to this day.
A great haul of figures there. Some of those I swear I haven’t seen since my childhood, (the Gurkhas, the Japanese) but I instantly remembered all the poses as soon as I set eyes on them. I guess we never forget a figure!
These are some of my favorite figures that I have. I remember hunting these sets in the 1980’s and 1990’s.
