The magazine was first published in 1997 and has been a favourite magazine coming out monthly ever since. Aimed at those interested in creating scale replicas of historical planes, it covers all progression of the hobby throughout history, such as the change from gliders to electronic radio control models. Initially, man started out with kites, gliders and hot-air balloons as means of exploring the skies, but it is widely assumed that the Wright Brothers had the best knowledge of aerodynamics in 1907, and were the first to build a man-carrying practical aircraft, that took its pilot from the ground and back to it avoiding damage. From then, the field of aviation has grown in leaps and bounds, and air travel is now vital to our society via war, business, travel and the postal service. Planes have become an accepted and highly technological part of modern life, and it is an industry that makes millions of dollars every year. So, why wouldn’t you want to capture that genius is scale form? Building model aircrafts has been a popular hobby since air travel was made more publically available, and people take delight in recreating these poignant pieces from our world’s history.
