Alain Prost Story.

An ardent soccer and motorcycle racing aficionado, Alain Prost first encountered competition on four wheels when he accompanied his brother to a kart track.

Barely 14 at the time, he soon made this bright new world his own. He rapidly forged an enviable reputation through a combination of unquestionable natural flair and a strong interest in the sport’s tecnical side.

After winning the French and European Formula Renault titles (1976-77).he cruised to the European F3 title in 1979 and graduated to F1 the following season, when McLaren swooped tp capture one of the sports most promising young talents.

He competed in his first world championship grand prix at Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1980- and scored a point on his debut.

The legend was gaining momentum.

Prost switched to Renault and become a serious world championship contender, just missing out on the title in 1983.

The following season he rejoined McLaren and again finished as world championship runner-up, only half a point behind team-mate Niki Lauda.

He finially claimed the sports biggest prize in 1985, when he became Frances first Formula One world champion- a success he and McLaren repeated the following season.

Prost developed a reputation for a smooth driving style and relentless attention to detail when it came to chassis set-up qualities that led to him being nicknamed “The Professor”.

He clinched a third world title in 1989, after pipping McLaren team-mate Ayrton Senna, and then signed for Ferrari.

He fought hard, but in vain, for the 1990 world title and then decided to take a year away from the sport at the end of the 1991 campaign.

He made a stellar return in 1993, with Williams-Renault , and swept to a fourth world title.

At the time his 51 grand prix victories made him the most successful driver in F1 history, in terms of race wins.

That was an appropriate moment to bow out and he subsequently turned his attention to putting together his own F1 team, Post Grand Prix, which competed in F1 from 1997 until 2001. He was by no means yet finished as a driver, however, and in 2003 he made his debut in the Trophee Andros ice-racing series at the wheel of a Toyota.

The Sea Harrier is a naval vertical/short takeoff and landing (V/STOL) jet fighter, reconnaissance and attack aircraft. The first version entered service with the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm in April 1980 as the Sea Harrier FRS1, and was informally known as the Shar.

During the 1982 Falklands/Malvinas conflict the HMS Invincible and HMS Hermes were dispatched to the South Atlantic along with all available surface combatants and support vessels.

The FRS1 provided air defense support to the fleet, and to the troops ashore and did a credible job against the Argentine Air Force and Naval air force operating from their home bases on the mainland. With the help of the last-minute upgrade to employ the all-aspect AIM-9L Sidewinder, the Harrier FRS1 was able to achieve 21 kills without any air-to-air losses.

AirFix Plastic Model Kits.

Airfix celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2014.

In Australia some models are not available straight away.

Visit some of Australia Hobby Stores and have a look at the kits that are available.

About Airfix

Airfix was founded in 1939 in the UK by Nicholas Kove, a refugee from Hungary who originally manufactured rubber inflated toys.

The name Airfix was chosen because part of the process involved fixing air into products.  Kove believed that all successful companies should have their names at the beginning of business directories and consequently the name Airfix was born.  After the Second World War he switched to producing plastic combs, and was the first manufacturer in the UK to introduce an injection moulding machine.

In the late 1940s Airfix was approached by Harry Ferguson (the tractor manufacturer) to make a cheap model of one of his tractors that could be used by his sales team as a promotional tool.  At first there were problems making the model, so it was decided to make it in a series of parts to be assembled by a team of skilled workers.

This ready-built tractor proved to be popular and Ferguson allowed Airfix to produce them as toys and sell them under the Airfix name.  It soon became obvious that more tractors could be sold if they were cheaper, and to achieve this they sold the kits unmade with instructions.  This proved to be successful, and shortly after F.W. Woolworth approached Airfix suggesting that, by using a more stable polystyrene plastic and poly bags with a card header, it would meet the Woolworth’s retail price of 2 shillings.  The small scale Golden Hind was launched in 1952.  Woolworth’s buyers then began to ask for more subjects, then soon after Airfix began to produce a wider range of polybagged model kits – the all famous Spitfire model appearing from 1953.

Airfix grew throughout the 1960s and ’70s as the plastic kit modelling hobby became ever more popular.  The range then expanded to include figures, trains, trackside accessories, military vehicles, engines, rockets, large classic ships, warships, liners, modern cars, vintage cars, motorcycles, spaceships and more.
