I think the main issue here is not whether women or men should appear on the covers of Model Airplane magazines but rather how they are portrayed.
Many of my issues of Quiet Flyer (S&E modeller) feature attractive women holding or flying model planes, in all cases very tastefull and not something you would worry about leaving on the coffee table.

The problem comes about when instead of the person enhancing the overall image, they become the main focus, usually counting on the lack of clothing to distract the viewer.

In these cases I do have objections as I would rather my subscription fees be spent on real content than on glamour models.
