’21st Century Plastic Modeller’ was an aircraft scale modelling magazine for newcomers and budget-conscious modellers. The aim was to show that you don’t necessarily need lots of aftermarket accessories and expensive new-tooled kits to make a good model. Accordingly, the magazine focused on lower-priced aircraft kits from the major kit manufacturers (Airfix, Revell, Matchbox, Italeri etc.) that are readily available in model shops. Sections of the magazine were devoted to help for newcomers, kit reviews, hints and tips and how-to-build articles. Each issue also contained a scale plans feature. The majority of subjects were 1/72 scale kits of aircraft of the major world powers, with occasional coverage of the larger scales and smaller countries. All of the articles were very well written and amply illustrated, albeit only in black and white. The only colour in this A4 size publication was on the cover.
First issue dated July/August 2000. Published quarterly until issue no.10 (Volume 2 No.4 for 2002), after which it was absorbed into Vol.7 No.2 of ‘Mushroom Model Magazine‘, when Ron Firth retired from publishing.
The editor was Ron Firth, who aso produced ‘Plastic Kit Constructor‘.
