Response to So, what aviation model magazines are still around?

Still with us:

Lotnictwo z Szachwynica (Aviation with white-red chessboards)
Militaria i Facty
Militaria Wieku XX (Military in the 20th Century)
Modelarstwo Okretwe (ship oriented but some naval aviation coverage)
Skrzydlata Polska (Polish Wings)

Latest Issues not advertized - possibly defunct
Model Redukcyjny

No longer with us
Model Hobby (Mirage Hobby's magazine)

Of the list above, the two oustanding current magazines are mini-Replika and Aviation with white-red chessboards. The former covers all aspects of modeling, but is skewed towards Polish aircraft, vehicles and ships. The latter is mostly actual aviation but does have some model coverage and great color profiles. I never miss an issue of either magazine.

I miss Mirage Hobby's Model Hobby magazine the most. It had scholarly articles many of which debunked accepted assumptions on colors markings and history, superb drawings and color profiles.

Yea, I know. They're in Polish, but modelers buy French, Japanese and German publications, too. One picture - often worth 1,000 words. The photo coverage is superb and most can figure out the data in the captions.
