Scale Aircraft Modelling
In the face of a changing marketplace SAM has proved once again that it is the first, the best, and the most obvious choice for aircraft modellers. With over four decades of publication behind it, and an editorial team committed to providing the broadest possible coverage of the hobby no other magazine has provided such stability and continuity through these challenging times, and we continue to build on this reputation month on month with a balanced content of news, reference material, and modelling to offer the reader not only choice but the inspiration on which to base it...
Our historical and reference pieces are widely respected for the coverage they offer, and collected by readers for their ground-breaking research. Our monthly centre-section offers a one-stop precis of aircraft types based on the old 'Profile' series, but updated with colour artwork and scale drawings, while Colour Conundrum draws on original Air Ministry documentation to offer new ideas for well-covered subjects, often with unique insights into camouflage and markings.
From first-time builders to competition winners, SAM has something for everyone, showcasing techniques and products, and demonstrating skills and ideas that can turn an everyday model into a show-stopper. Always inclusive, our core modelling content is aimed at all skill levels and disciplines. There is no 'right' way to build a model. We each assimilate skills and ideas to suit our own tastes, and no publication is better attuned to what its readers want and need from a magazine. Make SAM your choice!.

BRITISH RAILWAYS ILLUSTRATED, now approaching its 30th year and long known by its cheerful acronym 'BRILL'.
Colour cover, 56 pages of text and, typically, 60-70 high quality black and white images. There are maps and plans/diagrams in most issues. 'History with a good helping of nostalgia' is its hallmark with some humour thrown in; concentrates on the steam and early modernisation era of British Railways, 1948 to the 1970s (diesel and electric) but also features subjects and themes from the 1930s and the Second World War. Locomotives and locomotive workings feature prominently but there are always items on rolling stock, buildings, bridges, track and signalling as well as human/social aspects. Lively letters pages keep the readership involved.
RAILWAY BYLINES, now in its 26th year.
Colour cover, 56 pages of text and, like British Railways Illustrated, some 60-70 high quality black and white images. There are maps and plans/diagrams in most issues. Subject matter is wide ranging and the BYLINES in the title is very deliberate; homely branch lines serving villages and country towns, industrial lines serving mills, foundries, works, quarries, mines and ports, together with their often ancient locomotives and their correspondingly elderly and eccentric stock.
Both standard and narrow gauge with occasional Irish subjects. Most frequently portrayed period is the 1950s-1960s before such workings and lines began to disappear, though occasionally earlier eras are covered.
Editorial is wide-ranging - buildings, stock, structures, social/human aspects and so on - history/nostalgia with a light touch that matches its often out-of-the-way, off-beat subjects.
Model Truck World is the only magazine to combine all aspects of the hobby, bringing plastic kits, die-cast building and collecting and radio control to your doorstep along with the latest news and reviews, show reports, and reference material to enable you to make the best of your hobby.
Model Truck World's key focus is model building whether they are plastic, resin or metal. Inside, the publication is packed full of articles on regular kits, transkits, and scratch-builds, plus practical articles with hints, tips and techniques on building as well as painting and finishing. Each Issue contains colour profiles, plans, technical data, drawings, and reference photographs. We also present model show reports from the UK and, where possible, around the world.
With a truly international readership, we actively encourage reader contributions, leading to a strong sense of ownership and loyalty, and creating a global family of truck modellers.
The New Model Farmer & Commercial Machinery World is the UK's best magazine for collectors of agricultural equipment models in all scales, focusing on all age groups from kids to serious adult collectors.
Each issue keeps the reader up to date on releases and announcements from the various model manufacturers and kit producers, both for agricultural and construction related themes and actively welcomes our readers to contribute stories about their collection, or specific projects that they have undertaken. Filled with diecast model reviews, giving the lowdown on the latest replicas to hit the market along with show reports from the UK and Europe covering some of the biggest and most recognised events.
Plastic model kits will be featured in the magazine, with “In the Box” articles showing the contents of each kit before model building experts take over to highlight their build and painting techniques. Conversions and modifications to existing models will give a taste of the skills of hobbyists to create that one-off exclusive model with “How To” tutorials covering various weathering approaches. Find out about other collectors and their collecting habits with the “Collector Profile” stories providing interesting insights into the mind of a collector.
There is a growing range of remote-control models being produced, both from model manufacturers and custom builders so we will endeavour to look into what is currently available along with reports on converting static models into remote control vehicles.
The Warpaint series offers a one-stop reference work on a given aircraft type, encompassing a complete and comprehensive history of the development, introduction and service use of its subject.

Colour Conundrum Compendium No. 1 by Paul Lucas
80 pages plus 4 cover
What to build next? Inspirational and original reference material has been a cornerstone of SAM since its inception, and 'Colour Conundrum' is designed specifically to offer the modeller something different. With original research based on surviving records in the National Archive at Kew the aim of these articles is to throw fresh light upon some old questions, to challenge some long held views on aircraft camouflage and markings, and to pose new questions that had arisen as a result of the research to which the answers were not yet known.
Quoting extensively from primary sources, the articles also provide valuable insight into the organisation and administration of the air force, and the many thousands of documents and memos that passed from office to office behind the scenes, providing background and understanding that add depth and focus to a model, as well as an opportunity to understand why a specific colour scheme may have been either selected or rejected.
Author Paul Lucas' work is rightly regarded as both valuable and unique in current aviation publishing, and we are proud to be able to present this selection, collected together in book form for the first time due to overwhelming demand from readers.
After the Apocalypse Curated by David Grummitt and Marco Riolo
