Hi.  Just joined the forum..
When I was a kid I had a magazine that had  all the airfix 1/72 soldiers  in , painted and lined up  depicting every set made .  I think this was maybe one of the airfix magazines.?  But can’t seem to find it ?   Would anyone have any ideas ?  I know it’s not a lot to go on but..
Thanks dean

I remember them as well. Every pose of each set painted up and scanned so that they were in lines across a double page spread. The airfix Catalogue if I,m not mistaken.

EDIT..it was 🙂

Definately the Airfix catalogue, probably from the early 70´s. That would fit to my Memory of seeing the catalogue in the local model shop. Pre that I seem to remember the figure sets were shown in the catalogues set out on oblong shaped pieces of Card but it was a Long time ago so I´m not so sure.

Thanks for your help , but ratch has said it’s the 1972 catalogue...   I’ve been on here 5 minutes and have found out something I’ve spent years trying to track down... good start..
