Caesar vs Airfix!


Caesar Miniatures had done a set of 1/72nd scale Astronauts.  How do they compare to the 40 year old set released by Airfix?


Caesar Miniatures on the left and a 40 year old Airfix figure, painted silver, on the right.


The two figures are not all that different.


The Airfix guys come with a separate backpack.  The arms are out away from the body too.


Given how much time has been past, the Airfix set has held up pretty well.

Interesting comparison !
In fact, I'm not sure that the Modern Caesar are better than the old Airfix...
(sounds a little like "Caesar vs Asterix !)

You could paint them up as secret Nazi scientists and play a wargame on the moon! Nice review.

Caesar vs Asterix, I like that!
Airfix made some excellent sets that hold up well today. I think their 1973 Afrika Korps may be the best set in soft plastic, ever.

Thanks Geordie, I like to see how far we have travelled on the soft plastic road and sometimes it's not that far.
