Best resources for Airfix modellers

Looking for Airfix? Take a look at this roundup of the best Airfix and plastic modelling websites.

I started playing with plastic kits, and Air Fix in particular, at almost the same time as I started playing with model trains. You can read how I got started in models and trains on my about page. And I still love making them.

Not surprisingly, I occasionally get asked for other sites I recommend for Airfix modelling. Here then are my favourite sites. There’s no order to this list, it’s just my preferred source for all things Airfix.

Model DadsNot strictly an Airfix blog but Airfix gets its share of the action on this wonderful miniature wargaming, painting, and modelling blog.

A busy forum dedicated to all things Airfix with 1000+ members. If you’re into plastic model building this forum is a must-visit.

Another big busy forum. The IPMS  has two thousand members in the UK alone, many on their forum, making it an invaluable resource for not just Airfix but plastic modelling in general.

Although smaller than the other two forums, in members at least, I like this forum the most and find it the most useful and I’m in awe of the quality of the model some of its members produce, I can only stop and stare at the pictures in the gallery section.  Worth stopping by.

A huge forum for all Airfix fans set up in 2006 it’s now got over 6000 members who have posted over 50,000 forum messages. Although I prefer International Scale Modeller I can’t help but admire the knowledge and wisdom available on Air Fix Tribute Forum and appreciate the effort that must go into maintaining it. Definitely one to bookmark.

If you run a website devoted to Airfix or plastic modelling, I’d love to hear from you and perhaps add your site here. Add your details below or drop me a line via the Contact page.
