Model Airplanes - Own, Collect, Create
Model Aviation Is An Exciting And Affordable Adventure
Imagine having a couple of airplanes, one helicopter, an autogyro and maybe several ultralight trikes and all of that sitting in your room. In fact that's a humble collection of model airplanes - most model aviation fans have tens, sometimes hundreds of models. Some prefer to buy and collect, others build them themselves. Some like static scale models which are exact copies of existing airplanes.
Others want to control remotely their real flying models.
Model aviation makes all of this possible.
Do You Like To Build Or Collect?
There are three main types of model aviators - these who like to collect ready models, these who like to build themselves or those who prefer to do both. We are from the third type, so this site covers both building and collecting.
