THIS WEEK SAW the annual Airfix Competition 2020, organised by Peter Chiang, of Hobby Bounties in Singapore. Due to the Covid-19 and the Singapore Air Force Museum being closed, it was held online at Facebook, under the Hobby Bounties’ event 'mini-Airfix Cup 2020.'

The pictures (header, below) are the entries from John Bartram from Sydney, Australia.


1. Airfix 1:144 Boeing Clipper Flying Boat, 1964 mould.

2. Airfix 1:72 Lysander, old original mould.

3. Airfix Hawker Hurricane MkI, old original mould.

4. Airfix 1:72 scale CAC Boomerang, old original mould.


Also included is a photo of Ng Keng Leong’s F-51D Mustang.

Plenty more information, pictures, and of course the winners, are to be found at the dedicated Hobby Bounties Airfix Cup web page. 

Our personal favourite is the Batwing, which started out as a standard Airfix Curtiss Tomahawk kit. It's nice enough out of the box, but the conversion to Bat-status by M. Razali Ahmad is original, interesting, and technically well up to scratch, Deservedly, the Batwing gained First in the Senior Open category.
