Some encouraging news...

Having spent the last day reading story after story about the demise of Humbrol, and the resulting collapse of Airfix, some encouraging news that good old Frank Martin, ex-Humbrol, and of Hornby recovery fame, could be interested in rescuing Airfix. After a year which has seen Hornby grab a number of insolvent model firms, including Lima, it does seem to fit with their business plans. After all, Humbrol are definately "in solvent", and "in paints", and "in plastics".... Hmmm, I'll get me coat...;-)

Other news includes a pretty good story on Newsnight last night, and further news on the BBC online.
