interesting tie-in with Haynes but there is no difference in this version of these kits than the previous releases of these Airfix kits, and if you figure in the exchange rate for a 13 UK Pound to USD currency, that's about $26 before shipping.
IMHO a bit pricey for a 1/32 scale kit with no chrome parts in it.
these can probably be acquired cheaper from a popular auction site or at a swap meet.
P.S. I think they are NOT snap kits, I have some older releases and they're all "glue together" kits.

They're not snap kits but they are pretty cool ! Especially the Haynes artwork and instructions . Maybe a bit pricey but that MGB would look good in my collection .

I love the Airfix 1/32 scale kits! When I was a kid living in Germany we couldn't get US kits locally, but those little Airfix cars were always available. I have about 10 different ones, mostly bought as an adult in the US. It used to be that you could pick them up at shows for $5, but that was before eBay. Now people post them for sale and the Europeans bid them up to big Euros!
