Model Aircraft Magazine is first and foremost a modellers magazine, mixing kit builds and conversions with historical and reference pieces, but with the focus always on information and images that will be of use to those building in scale. Regular authors include military historian Anthony Tucker-Jones, Jack Herris, whose WWI articles couple in-depth research with a seemingly inexhaustible archive of historical photographs, aviation photo journalist Steve Palmer, and Robin Polderman, whose position on a Dutch F-16 squadron allow him global opportunities to exercise his considerable skills as a photographer. Modelling features have a wide pool of talent to draw on, accumulated over sixteen years with Scale Aviation Modeller International, and as Editor of both titles Gary Hatcher is able to collate and direct material as appropriate, and see that it is showcased in the best possible way. One regular article features the work of Trevor Pask, author of the best of the recent titles on building Airfix kits, and a modeller whose enthusiasm and commitment to each project he undertakes might be said to personify the hobby as many of us regard it. Anything goes on Trevor’s workbench, and unlike so many of us, he always finds a way to finish a kit.
Currently no other magazine in the marketplace caters for the very real audience that Model Aircraft is designed to appeal to, and with other titles having changed their direction away from the historical/reference field, leaving a noticeable void, it offers a unique and essential read to the enthusiast.
