The "Useful Links for Scale Modellers" thread!

I thought it might be nice to try to collate all those oh-so-useful links into a single thread, and create ourselves a reference source.

Let's keep it scale-specific, so no links to general modelling sites or wares, but either links to scale model vendors or full-size reference sites.

Oh yeah, and lets keep it simple too; so no discussion on this thread. Start new threads for that!

I'll start.................

The works of prolific designer Frederick Koolhoven;

http://www.koolhoven.com/

Dare Design and Engineering;

http://www.darehobby.com/

Sky Corner. A huge site full of photos and 3-views from the last century;

http://www.airwar.ru/indexe.html

AerodromeRC;

http://www.aerodromerc.com/

100aircraftphotos. Exactly what it says!;

http://www.1000aircraftphotos.com/

Pauls Ugly Aircraft Shrine. For the less than pretty;

http://www.fortunecity.com/tattooine...120/index.html

Ryan Aircraft. Jims little scale jobs;

http://home.fuse.net/ryan/

Warbird Alley. Airworthy old warbirds;

http://home.fuse.net/ryan/

PR Kits. Not kits, but Peter Rakes plans;

http://www.pr-kits.com/

DXF plans;

http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaver...716/Page3.html

Scale plans;

http://members.fortunecity.co.uk/slmohr/rcplan6.htm

The Shuttleworth Collection. Airworthy old'uns;

http://www.shuttleworthcollection.co...orth/index.htm

DB Sportand Scale. Dave Boddingtons own plans and kits;

Any more for any more?

For all things Luftwaffe: http://www.luftarchiv.de/

Good info and details for WW1 Fokkers: http://www.fokker-team.de/ They even plan on reconstructing the Fokker works at Schwerin, with the airfield where the full scale reproductions will fly.
