It makes my heart swell to see Airfix releasing new stuff!
Really, it does!

Great stuff.

Almost enough to get me looking at British in Afghanistan. Mustn't start anything new!

I have also seen the Jackal in the same scale and will use it as a Post Apoc survival vehicle.

They do a nice range of Modern British stuff.


Unfortunately, none of it made it to my house for Christmas.

Here's the Jackal –


Here's the Coyote –


Here's the Landrovers –

Damn, dat Supacat!

But . . . wait . . . why are the British filming Mad Max in Afghanistan? Don't they know there's a war on? ;)

Now if they will just do a BV206 as well….

And 1/48th is a 'proper scale'

(insert my usual rant about "28mm/32mm/foot to eye etc etc")

Great stuff.

Rapier, if you want a Bv try HLBS

im planing on a slew of Warriors with some what-iffery.
ADA, maverik AT etc.

I wonder how many quad bikes come in the set… eight figures could equate to just one but the title suggests more… two perhaps?

Fingers crossed for a Blackhawk one day.

Still need to get a Coyote for my Infinity gaming. Big, unarmored transport for things like TAGs.

good for airfix. i hope their 1:48 line expands to other brit stuff. perfect for gaming

Can they be used with 25mm figures? I have a possible use for the Coyote and maybe the Jackal.

Edit- Must pay attention when reading!! Doh.


atom1210 Jan 2013 10:29 p.m. PST

any one know here to buy in the states.


jeffbird11 Jan 2013 1:24 p.m. PST

Are there 15mm/20mm version of the Coyote or Jackal available? I wouldn't mind some for my AK47 games.

I think in Shawn of the Dead they had some as well.
