Modeling Magazines: Past and Present - Airplanes and RocketsHere is a list of many classic modeling magazines that are now or have been in print within the last decade or so. Unfortunately, most of these magazines are now out of print. Some have disappeared altogether while others have online-only editions.

Fortunately, though, a few benevolent souls have taken it upon themselves to scan hundreds of past issues and made them available in PDF format at no charge to everyone (see list to the right). The Archive.org website's Wayback Machine™ has captured many years worth of the magazines' webpages, so all is not lost (click on the links below cover page thumbnails). You might express your appreciation by donating a few dollars to those from whose services you have benefitted. Heck, as long as you're being generous, please consider a donation to this website, AirplanesAndRockets.com, as well :-)
