The only magazine in the world devoted to the hobby of truck models collecting and construction, Truck Model World is a friendly guide to the miniature HGV and haulage hobby.
Each issue of this fairly slight but content-packed monthly magazine contains all the truck modelling news from around the world, including previews of new releases. It covers the art of construction and modification of metal diecast, plastic and resin trucks, with tips on painting and customisation. There is also an array of different features, covering building and modification of models, in-depth looks at some of the best miniature trucks out there, radio control and coverage of the truck model conventions. Truck Model world also offers a calendar of upcoming events, a shopping guide and some great colour photography throughout.

Okay. We’ve got to put our hands up and admit something slightly embarrassing. When the July 2012 issue of Truck Model World landed on our to-do pile (an immeasurable, towering collection of magazine that looms over us as we work), we didn’t realise it was about model trucks. The key word there is model.
You may be laughing in derision, and that's fair enough. The first part of our defence lies in the fact that the format of the magazine’s name has the word ‘Truck’ in big bold letters, and ‘Model World’ in small lettering underneath. The main reason, however, is that the model truck featured on the front cover was so intricately detailed and cunningly photographed that it actually looked like a real truck.
Of course, upon closer inspection and the opening of the magazine these false assumptions instantly fell apart. Inside we found a great long established magazine, passionately devoted to the hobby, covering pretty much every aspect of it in impressive depth and world-wide. Whatever the case, however, we remain impressed that the model truck hobby is so good at recreating trucks from the real world that, no matter how briefly, they managed to fool us. NB
