Mini-Airfix AFV diorama competition, Singapore June 2021

Most modellers are familiar with the extensive Airfix 1:76 AFV range, but not many are aware and tried the Airfix 1:35 AFV range (which many differentiate with the 1:32 range).

This event was announced earlier at the start of this year, but many modellers only started the build in the last 2 months.

Phabulous Phantom COVID-19 Build - Singapore 2021

After our successful Airfix 48 hours 48th Mustang build last year which received a lot of interest and entries, and the continued COVID-19 situation which continues to restrict people’s movements and kept many at home, we created the Phabulous Phantom COVID-19 build event from 8th - 21st May 2021.

The idea belongs to Henry Low who decided that with the more difficult Airfix 1:72 McDonnell Phantom, more time was needed and used the Singapore timing of Stay Home Notice (SHN) as the time given. FYI - the SHN is equivalent to 2 weeks quarantine. And one of our participants, Kevin Khoo, on quarantine at a Singapore government designated service apartment for 3 weeks (Singapore government extended the SHN of people from certain countries from 2 to 3 weeks).
