   AeroModeller Reviewed 20 February 2020 SUBSCRIBER
An old school magazine that brings back the joy of aviation modelling. And gives many ideas of entrances to this great hobby for young modellers.
   THE magazine for true aeromodellers! Reviewed 17 July 2019
The original (and really the only) magazine for free flight and control line model aircraft builders. These days with a nod towards RC assist and light weight RC too. Free plans, interesting articles on building, flying, engines, rubber motors etc. plus upcoming events, all the latest aeromodelling news, regular photo reports of flying meetings and a big dose of nostalgia too if you grew up with this magazine in the last century.
Still a wonderful magazine for this wonderful hobby!
