This page lists some useful modelling web pages and references:


http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/ Probably the best forum for UK aircraft modellers (and modellers of UK aircraft!). British bias and flavour.

https://www.scalemates.com/ A superb reference for all modellers, listing most available kits.

http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/ Interesting daily updates, often featuring impressive builds by real (i.e not “super”) modellers from around the world. However, note that the review section is rather confusing.

http://whatifmodelers.com/ Some superbly inventive modellers on this speculative modelling site.  Forums can be active and lively.

Unofficial Airfix Modellers Forum . Welcoming and interesting, if sometimes a little quiet.  Strong British Classic Kit bias!

Aircraft Carrier Alliance - Want to see some astonishing pictures of the Royal Navy’s latest Aircraft Carrier in build ?

http://modelstories.free.fr/ In French, but there is a link to an English version. Modelling from the Gallic side of the channel. Professionally presented monthly updates and interesting articles.

http://www.fanakit.fr/ Another superb French site. No English version this time, but it is fairly self explanatory and contains lots of superb reference photographs.

http://www.internetmodeler.com/ Monthly updates, good quality articles and reviews, if a bit staid.

http://www.hyperscale.com/ Good daily updates, kit reviews and articles, Site owner well respected and produces some superb video reports from shows, plus informative modelling technique tutorials. Strong US bias.

http://modelingmadness.com/ Very much a US oriented site, even though the site owner/editor has a definite soft spot for Brit aircraft. Remains the best source of well written model reviews and previews.

http://airfixtributeforum.myfastforum.org Another excellent site, this time biased entirely toward Airfix kits.

http://www.scale-rotors.com/ Comprehensive Helicopter modelling site.

http://www.thunder-and-lightnings.co.uk/contents.html An essential reference for British Cold War aircraft modellers.

http://www.scramble.nl/index.html Databases good for Order of Battle etc etc. of most world air arms.

http://www.fradu-hunters.co.uk/bstevens/index.html Comprehensive FRADU Hunters (& Canberras) site.

http://www.airliners.net/ Photos of everything you ever wanted.

http://www.naval-history.net/NAVAL1982FALKLANDS.htm A superb reference on the Falklands war, amongst others.
