Model Aircraft – An Overview

Model aircraft can be found across a broad spectrum of society and cross both economic and social boundaries. They are often thought of as toys and many enthusiasts around the world, old and young alike derive a great deal of pleasure from either builing and/or collecting scale model aeroplanes.
