Airfix Model World


Your complete guide to the world of scale modelling.

The Official Airfix
Modelling Magazine

Welcome to Airfix Model World (AMW). We hope you will be pleasantly surprised by the contents, not just in terms of actual builds, but also the high-quality photography (all by contributors) and explanatory text. Both have been trademarks of this magazine since its inception, with the former crucial to creating an easily understandable article – after all, model-making is a visual hobby, so we have always strived to show readers just how the end result is achieved.

While we feature Airfix products in every issue, we also cover those from other major manufacturers, such as Eduard, Hasegawa, Revell, Special Hobby, IBG Models, Italeri, Tamiya and Kinetic, as well as those from limited-run and ‘cottage industry’ firms. It means we cover every genre of the hobby, from figures and aircraft to armour, maritime and sci-fi/real space, with the aim of providing the broadest selection of content.

Furthermore, AMW has strived to include informative history/background articles with certain build features, often providing a different take on an otherwise familiar topic. These are written by renowned historians or people involved intimately with a subject. If you are seeking something more in-depth, then we occasionally publish special supplements, dedicated sections or bookazines, which focus on either a theme or a newly-tooled kit, along with valuable reference material on the real subject where feasible. No other monthly modelling magazine offers this much variety and quality.

SPLENDID SPOTTER

Czech firm Brengun has filled a gap in the market with a modern tooling of Luftwaffe ‘eye in the sky’ – the Hs 126.

BALKANS SCOURGE!

Airfix's excellent 1/72 Stuka makes a welcome return, with this Balkans-theatre version built by Huw Morgan.

FLUSH-WINGED ‘DOODLEBUSTER’

Following the release of its newly tooled 1/48 Hawker Tempest in 2018, this is the first of Eduard’s styrene-only Weekend Edition versions.

Review Premium

ULTIMATE FISHBED DEVELOPMENT

This Italeri MiG-21bis is a re-boxing of Fujimi’s 1991-tooled 1/72 kit, and while hardly long in the tooth, it faces competition from more modern offerings from Eduard and Zvezda, among others.

Review Premium

AVIATION SCENE

Here’s another great multi-set ensemble from ICM, comprising the firm’s 1/48 Bf 109F-4 (48103), Hs 126B-1 (48212) and German Pilots and Ground Personnel set (48082) – and for almost 20% less than the cost of these items separately.

Review Premium

DESERT VISIONS

Special Hobby’s 1/72 Mirage F.1s have been hugely popular since their initial release, and this has been so true of the EQ/ED version (as used by Iraq, Iran, Qatar and Libya) that it has been reissued.

Review Premium

LARGE-SCALE ‘EMIL’

Arguably, Airfix revolutionised large-scale modelling with its 1/24 ‘Super Kits’; its Bf 109E was one of the last of the initial batch released between 1970-73, making it a logical inclusion in the firm’s Vintage Classics series.

Review Premium

SIRENS AND SKIDS

Zvezda has reworked its recent 1/72 Junkers Ju 87 Stuka snap-fit offering to depict the type as fitted with skis on World War Two’s Eastern Front.
