IntroductionModel Aircraft is a sister magazine of Scale Aviation Modeller International and is published by SAM Publications as well. While the latter is more focused on aircraft modeling, Model Aircraft's articles have a stronger historical background to them. It is nevertheless aimed at modelers since most of the content is accompanied by builds of plastic model kits for illustration purposes.
