I know Replic is gone now. Very sad, as it was a great publication.

Obviously we have Tamiya Model Mag, Model Airplane Intl. SAM, SAMI, Military in Scale, Airfix Model Mag.and Finescale.

Who am I missing? Who else has gone?

Happy Modelling! Roy

Model X started with such promise, but didn't last very long. I'm not sure if Aerospace Modeler is still around. They've started and stopped a couple different times.

I know not many read Japanese, I can barely read the Katakana and some Kanji, but the photos can be enlightening and the Nose Art Gallery model is very ..uh.. Inspiring....

(I think they got the idea from the old IPMS-Hawaii newsletter, Plastic in Paradise, but who knows)

Then there is Wing Masters from France (not as good as Replic, but still a good source of info),

Sky Model out of Italy, Over the Front for WWI fans, and I cannot think of any other.
Cheers,
Val

From long, long ago, and Peterson Publishing there was Scale Aircraft, Scale Armor, and I think they did another called Scale Ships.

...much to the consternation of readers and suscribers at the time. I think they've gone back to only armor and figures now.

To be honest, I quit buying paper magazines well over a year ago and only do digital editions now, so if it doesn't have a digital edition I don't read it and I won't miss it when it's gone.

Forgot about that one. Actually, don't think I've ever seen one in the flesh. From what I hear, though, it's first class. With Brett and Marcus at the helm, how could it be otherwise?

...and they don't even comp you a copy or two of the new mag?

I like it very much, I've got digital copies of each Air edition so far and since we sell it where I work, I get to see the paper edition as well. Very similar in concept and quality to David Parker's AFV Modeller and Air Modeller (has anyone mentioned that yet?) more content, less ads, high quality paper stock and binding, very nice magazine, definitely first class. Big fan.
