‘Model Aircraft Monthly’ is a scale modelling magazine which concentrates on providing reference information on full-size aircraft. It aims to provide the material which modellers need to complete accurate and detailed scale models. Each issue includes feature articles, scale plans, detail photos and colour artwork of specific aircraft types. In addition, new products of interest to the modeller are covered in each issue.

A glossy A4 size magazine with 64 pages in each issue. Illustrated by many colour photos and some b+w photos. The centre-spread takes the form of a fold-out 8-page section of scale line drawings and b+w cockpit illustrations. From 2003 the ‘Model’ part of the title was presented in very small letters, so that it appeared to be called ‘Aircraft Monthly’. From April 2006 the three words of the title had equal emphasis again. In 2009 the magazine was renamed ‘Military Aircraft Monthly’, and gained the suffix ‘International’ later in the same year. Under this title is became an aircraft magazine rather than a modelling magazine. In 2011 the magazine reverted back to ‘Model Aircraft’ – without the Monthly. With effect from the July 2016 issue, the original title was fully restored – ‘Model Aircraft Monthly’.
