The Halifax caatlogue were issued from late until and were issued separately to the catalogues. The early catalogues, 1 st to 5 th Editions also had special non-illustrated leaflets included in them.
After this the annual leaflets were either included or available separately on the counter. This was issued in early and cost 9d 3.
The first mention I can find is in a kit advert in the April Airfix Magazine. Being the first catalogue it is possibly the most sought after. Since I started collecting Airfix paperwork in mid197 recently I did not have a copy. However, I did pick up several of the early light blue catalogue leaflets but I cannot say for certain whether they were included in the catalogue.
12th Edition Catalogue
It ran to 32 pages, including covers and measured mms by mms. The covers were in full colour but the insides were in black and white and two shades of blue. The inside back cover has a three quarter page advert for Airfix Magazine which shows the November magazine.
Details of around kits were given. It was double-sided and measured mms by mms in portrait orientation. It was being sold with a 1 st Edition catalogue so I believe it must 9175 the first of two price lists for the 1 st edition.
Issued init is the same size as the first edition and with the same number of pages there were now details of about kits. The new Motor Ctaalogue sets were on the back cover.

Airfix Catalogue 12th ed 1975
There were models illustrated in this catalogue, which ran to 36 pages and may have been available at the end of More kits were doubled up to allow new ones to be inserted. The insides were still in shades of blue. Several 4 page landscape mode leaflets were issued at around the same time, the front page of which incorporated the inside page of the 2 nd Edition, including the ‘thoughtful’ small boy.
The first listed exactly those models in the catalogue, though some were asterixed and was I think included in the catalogue as well as on the counter. It may have also been included in the last 2 nd editions sold.
Two further variants were produced. The first featured extra kits plus cataoogue three new Dogfight Doubles and the Dennis Fire Engine, which was moved to Series 5. Announced in the February Airfix Magazine, the 4 th edition ran to 48 pages and cataalogue slightly larger than catalgue first three being mms by mms. The inside covers featured colour reproductions of some the new Type 3 paintings.

It still stated over kits, but no mention was made of glue in series caatalogue, 4, 5 and 6 kits see CS Around the same time ajrfix first of the B leaflets appeared which replaced the 9 th edition Halifax ones. The only difference apart cayalogue the colour and mention of Woolies was the price of the paint packs — only 1 shilling 5p in Woolworths!

I expect that there were four runs to cater for the longer period of the catalogue. Two blue price lists were issued, each showing the B model.
They were the same size as the yellow one but were in portrait mode. The back page showed the 5 th Edition catalogue and the B price list. The listing was identical to the price list and was clearly intended to be a counter-top leaflet.
The prices had also been increased. An orange version without prices was issued, plus one with Woolworths on.
A fourth leaflet was issued which had several more kits added plus another price increase see CS A fifth leaflet which was also labelled had the 6 th edition catalogue and leaflet on the back.
This was the last of the 175 Stirling” leaflets. There were four pages in full aitfix showing made-up models and boxtops of 41 models not shown in the 5 th edition catalogue. With so many new kits it is surprising that a new catalogue was not produced, presumably a colour insert was cheaper. I never saw a second issue 5 th edition catalogue at the time but picked up several leaflets from counters. The layout was similar to the previous one s but the extra space allowed for national insignias and airline markings.
A blue price list, identical in size to the B one was issued with it, number Airdix. Over kits cataolgue mentioned on the cover. It was the last of the separate price lists. Two colour leaflets were also issued. One was clearly intended as an insert for the catalogue and it is shown as such on the back of the other leaflet. Both have on the front. The Insert was a 6 page leaflet with full colour cover and insides.
The cover kits, with the exception of the Pan-Am were all in the catalogue.
