In days gone by
« on: October 12, 2018, 06:19:37 PM »
The Airfix Le Haye saint (French farmhouse)
1. Did you have one or more.
2. What did you do with it (be nice).
3. Do you still have it.

Me=
1. Had one. Bought it when it was first released. I used to buy everything that Airfix brought out (space rockets included).
2. Cut it into individual buildings. Used mainly for WW2 games.
3. Gone gone gone.

Is it still available??

Had Le Haye Saint, was given to friends children with some Airfix plastic Napoleonics.
Had the roman fort, I had enough to build the fortified town that was described in the Airfix magazine.

Had Le Haye Saint when a boy of about 12. Canít remember how it was used or what happened to it. Also had the Sherrif of Nottingham castle, now long gone, and the Roman Milecastle, bits of which may be up in the loft. Cannot use as too big for 15mm and below and got shot of my 25mm Romans as they were never going to be painted.

I obtained one second hand in my teens. It had already been battle damaged and was used in WW2 games. It is alas long gone.

Speaking of Airfix, the local toy shop started selling a bunch of WW2 Germans and whatnot out of the blue!

They were tied with string around the ankles and suspended from the ceiling in groups of five - oh sorry, that was bananas, or was it grapes? My favourite toy shop was near the railway station.
