This link for a new Airfix 2016 stand-alone catalogue was posted on the AMSIG site;
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/AIRFIX-H ... RTM2108002
But I can't find the catalogue on Airfix' own website at all.

The code number would appear to be correct for a '16 catalogue. ~A78193
A78194 is the current Year book
A78191 is the 2015 catalogue
A78192 & 3 not yet used.

Can anyone add any more to the story?

No one is going to get them too soon anyways. The warehouse isn't sending orders out from Wednesday to next Tuesday.

Douglas Dakota MkIII with Willys Jeep 1:72

Now showing as available.

Bristol Blenheim Mk.If 1:72 A04059
http://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-fo ... -1-72.html

Boulton Paul Defiant Mk1 1:48 A05128
http://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-fo ... -1-48.html

Both are, I think, about 7 or 10 days before their recently listed available date. I checked on the Defiant on Tuesday and it was showing, if I remember correctly, available from 04/03/16

I'm waiting for the laden version, they might bump it up a series but I think the coconut would be worth a couple of quid.
