‘Scale Modeler’ was a general interest scale plastic modelling magazine. It covered a wide range of subjects, including aircraft, armoured vehicles, ships, figures and dioramas. Each issued featured several long kit reviews with lots of photos of the model but few of the real subject, together with shorter kit reviews, conversions and super detailing features, model news etc. A majority of the features were of aircraft subjects. There were normally 75-100 A4 size pages in each issue, with 4-10 pages in colour. The 3-view line drawings included were usually to odd unusable scales. ‘Scale Modeler’ was first published in January 1966 and ceased publication after the September 1998 issue.
