Hello all,

Does anyone know why and when Airfix stopped selling aeroplane display stands (at least on the website).

Thank you

It could have been some time last year. The stands are not listed in the 2016 catalogue.

I think they were phased out towards the end of 2014, beginning of 2015. Airfix kept putting them in the last chance to buy sale on their website.
There might be more information available under the history section of the forum.
