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.

FLYING CLASSROOM

Airfix's first major new tooling for 2021, a 1/48 de Havilland Chipmunk T.10, is sure to delight modellers, and here’s a sneak peak of the parts in advance of next month’s exclusive build – just in time for the 75th anniversary of the type’s first flight.

BACK INTO THE DANGER ZONE

With the release of movie sequel, Top Gun: Maverick delayed until the summer, Airfix gives modellers a chance to experience “the need for speed” with the release of five 1/72 aircraft kits from the original film and its follow-on.

2021 RELEASES

SUPERLATIVE SUKHOI

EXTRA IMAGES INSIDE: Chinese newcomer Minibase’s first offering is a stunning 1/48 Su-33 Flanker-D naval fighter, with the box positively full to the brim with high-quality components.

RELICS OF ITALY

The third Panzerwrecks volume to focus on combat casualties in Italy offers yet another marvellous collection of previously unpublished photos for modellers to savour.

DISASTER SPRAYERS

Here’s another addition to ICM’s selection of packages inspired by the TV mini-series Chernobyl, in the form of its 1/35 Deactivators, clothed in protective gear and spraying areas with chemicals or water to prevent the spread of radioactive material.
