The Kitmaster Range

Fireball XL5


Lyons Maid, ZOOM Ice lollies promotion




The ZOOM ice lollies promotion advert invited one to send off two ZOOM wrappers and a Postal Order for 4/6d (22.5p) to obtain the XL5 Kit, value 9/-. The only mention of Kitmaster was on the Coupon to be sent off for the Kit, in reality it was an Airfix issue.





The Kits were sent out in plain cardboard boxes similar to the Nabisco promotion




The Kit came with a Buttonhole Badge



The Airfix magazine of July 1963 carried the advert as a colour, full size, back page.
