I can't help getting the impression that this is a case of slapping an AirFix sticker on boxes from someone else.

Oh thank you for posting this. I got the email from them about their 2019 catalog. I must say - wow. I saw many, many kits in my stash having a comeback with a few new things sprinkled in (I hid my wallet for now). But ya what blew me away was all the 1:35 kits. Didn't know Airfix make/made 1:35 kits like maybe one (old age memory loss) with a few 1:32 kits sprinkled in. I have only did a little browsing around so far but - dang Airfix sure is 'kicking it up a notch' (borrowed cooking show term). Sure would like to hear the intel from the other side of the pond on this.

Do we blame Brexit or Trump on this (please go easy on me - just a little humor tossed in)

Cheers

The 1/35 armour kits do look like reboxed Academy kits. An awful lot of re-releases of kits from their heyday in the 1960s/70s.
