Model Airplane Kits

Model airplanes are a very popular area of plastic model making. And just about every model airplane, and jet, every made for production is available as a kit.

There are several different types of kits and two of the more popular are plastic kits and balsa wood kits.

Here I have resources and information for you including tips, tutorials and even videos on making them.
