Welcome to Detail & Scale’s
Scale Modeling Section!

Between 1978 and 2004, Detail & Scale produced 75 titles in the well-known Detail & Scale Series of aviation publications.  In addition to covering the featured aircraft in extensive detail, a special Modelers Section was included at the back of each book.  This section contained reviews of scale model kits and other modeling items related to that particular aircraft.  The intent of this section was to help scale modelers choose the best kit to work with, and then identify the strengths and weaknesses of the kits, so that the modeler could take steps to correct problems and build a more accurate and detailed replica of the aircraft.

Over the years, the Modelers Section in our books became very popular with serious scale modelers, and the reviews gained a reputation for being concise, objective, and detailed.  The reviews were not written in the, “I did this, and I did that,” style of reviewing kits and completing a specific build.  Rather they were objective, right/wrong reviews that provided valuable information that allowed the modeler to build the kit and create a more accurate model. The reviews were written by someone who not only understood the kits from an experienced modeler’s point of view, but who also had considerable expertise on the actual aircraft.

Today, the Modelers Section continues to be included in the digital books we are now producing in our expanded Detail & Scale Series of publications, but this website also makes it possible to do more Detail & Scale style reviews of kits, modeling accessories, and after-market items that are not covered by our publications.  No longer will our reviews be limited specifically to kits related to books we are publishing.  Here on our website, reviews will be added regularly, so check back often to see what’s new.

We know scale modelers will enjoy seeing Detail & Scale style reviews on many more kits and products than we are able to put on our publications.  But the reviews are only one area in our Scale Modeling Section.  The second area contains galleries of photo sets showing built models of a wide variety of aircraft from all eras, in all major modeling scales, and from different builders.  Modelers will find these photo sets very helpful when it comes to studying the building techniques of various builders.  Again, photo sets of models will be added regularly to these galleries, so be sure to check back often and see what new model photo sets are being added.

Whenever we add reviews or new model photo sets to our Scale Modeling Section, we will make an announcement and provide a link to the review or photo set on our popular Facebook page at  If you’re not following us on Facebook yet, drop by and be sure to like and follow our page.  In addition to these announcements, you’ll also see a lot of great posts from our contributors there as well.
