Model Aircraft Magazine

12 issues per year View Reviews   |   Write Review From €2,92 per issue Model Aircraft Magazine is first and foremost a modellers magazine, mixing kit builds and conversions with historical and reference pieces, but with the focus always on information and images that will be of use to those building in scale. .. read more
Regular authors include military historian Anthony Tucker-Jones, Jack Herris, whose WWI articles couple in-depth research with a seemingly inexhaustible archive of historical photographs, aviation photo journalist Steve Palmer, and Robin Polderman, whose position on a Dutch F-16 squadron allow him global opportunities to exercise his considerable skills as a photographer.
Modelling features have a wide pool of talent to draw on, accumulated over sixteen years with Scale Aviation Modeller International, and as Editor of both titles Gary Hatcher is able to collate and direct material as appropriate, and see that it is showcased in the best possible way. One regular article features the work of Trevor Pask, author of the best of the recent titles on building Airfix kits, and a modeller whose enthusiasm and commitment to each project he undertakes might be said to personify the hobby as many of us regard it. Anything goes on Trevor’s workbench, and unlike so many of us, he always finds a way to finish a kit.
New kit and accessories play a part in Model Aircraft as a brief presentation of new releases each month, leaving the wider sourcing of news and product coverage to sister magazine Scale Aviation Modeller International, and by this means we avoid repetition between the titles. SAMI remains the foremost magazine for those modellers who enjoy kits and modelling first, but have an interest in real aircraft. Model Aircraft is aimed instead at those real aircraft enthusiasts who also have a passion for modelling.
Model Aircraft is designed to offer a unique and essential read to the enthusiast.  read less

Building the Harrier

Model Aircraft Extra #5
Compiled by Andy Evans

The iconic Hawker Siddeley Harrier was the first of the so-called Harrier ‘Jump Jet’ series. It was developed in the 1960s as the first operational close-support and reconnaissance fighter aircraft with vertical/short take-off and landing (V/STOL) capabilities, and the only truly successful V/STOL design of the many that arose in that era, and at its heart was the innovative Rolls-Royce Pegasus engine with its thrust vectoring nozzles. .. read more The Harrier was developed directly from the Hawker Siddeley Kestrel prototype aircraft, following the cancellation of a more advanced supersonic Hawker Siddeley P.1154. Originally said to be ‘unable to carry more than a matchbox over a football field’ the Harrier matured into one of the most potent warplanes of its generation. The RAF ordered the Harrier GR.1 and GR.3 variants in the late 1960s, as well as T.4 trainers versions, and it was also exported to the United States as the AV-8A and TAV-8A, for use by the US Marine Corps as well as the Spanish Navy in the 1970s. Spain sold seven single-seat and two twin-seat Harriers to Thailand in 1998. The Sea Harrier FRS.1, which shot to fame during the Falklands War, was designed to fill the strike, reconnaissance and fighter roles for the Royal Navy, and the innovative use of a ‘ski jump’ allowed the aircraft to take-off from a short flight deck with a heavier loadout than otherwise possible. After the Falklands War, the Sea Harrier was upgraded to the F/A2 standard and featured the Blue Vixen radar and carried the AIM-120 AMRAAM missile.  read less
