Editorial Synopsis
Airfix Model World caters for all manner of modellers, from the eager novice embarking on their first build, to the experienced master modeller who uses photo-etched parts, resin and aftermarket decals. While new Airfix toolings and re-releases feature on a regular basis, the magazine is also completely inclusive of the whole market with reports on products from other major manufacturers, such as Hasegawa, Trumpeter, Tamiya, Italeri and Hobby Boss, to offer something for everyone. The main focus is on aircraft but, because we know many modellers look for inspiration in other disciplines, Airfix Model World also offers projects spanning military, ships, cars, space and figures.

Besides the latest news and reviews, readers can also expect; high-quality photography, top-notch instruction from expert modellers, stunning artwork and colour profiles, aircrew accounts and builds and advice covering all aspects of the modelling spectrum.

Airfix Model World targets all modellers, whether they are new to building plastic kits, seasoned builders or exhibition standard. Readers are likely to be youngsters and adults aged 8 to 80 but they have one thing in common - a passion for their hobby on which they are prepared to spend to produce the most life-like builds possible.

Airfix Model World will enjoy the best distribution of any magazine in the market.
