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;

Ryan Aircraft. Jims little scale jobs;

Warbird Alley. Airworthy old warbirds;

PR Kits. Not kits, but Peter Rakes plans;

DXF plans;

Scale plans;

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.
