Created on the 30th of April 2012 by me, Phil Churchill, Scale World aimed to produce colour charts for the modelling hobby that were as accurate as possible whilst also being easy to use. The next step was to create a chart for modellers who suffer from colour blindness.
All the colour charts are accessible via the Paint Charts page, you simply click on the heading of the chart you wish to view and then click on the charts to zoom in to read it.
After buying a second hand kit with no instructions and finding it hard to find a readable instruction book on the internet I started scanning all the instructions from every kit I buy and uploading them on here so that it will slowly build into a great reference library over time. I also started putting scans of the decals on here so you can see what they should look like if yours are missing.
Instructions are grouped by manufacturer and Airfix is further split by series. If you're not sure what Airfix series numbers are they're the first two digits of the kit's code, therefore A01002 is a series 1 kit, A02003 is series 2 and so on.
Enjoy the site and please get in touch with any comments, advice, criticisms or suggestions!
We now have a new, professionally designed logo in 4 colour schemes: Classic, Urban, Dessert and Tri-tone. These were designed by Han Verhoeven of Hanontwerper and we are very grateful for his fantastic work. Check out his website here:
A visitor from Barbados takes the total to 107
Antigua and Barbuda make it 108
Guernsey brings the total up to 109
On the 8th of May, 2013, we had a visitor from Jersey. This causes me a problem - do I include it's flag on here as it is not part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland but it is not a country in it's own right either. I have included Puerto Rico which isn't a country in it's own right so by that rule I've added Jersey too. Also, on the 25th of September, 2013, we had a visitor from Macau which isn't a country (and neither is Hong Kong for that matter) but they are Special Administrative Regions and run separately from China with their own governments, so I've included them too.
On the 31st of December 2012 we had our first visitor from the small Indian Ocean island of Réunion! As it is a French region it doesn't have it's own flag but I thought I would give it a special mention here.
On the 11th of November 2013 we had a visit from someone in Guadeloupe and, like Reunion, it doesn't have it's own flag so I've decided to put their Regional Council flags here instead.
A montage of the flags of the nations of the visitors to this site which is getting bigger all the time! Can you name them all?
Before anyone gets upset that some flags appear larger than others let me explain: Every flag has a specific ratio between the length and height so, as I've made each flag the same height, it means the width varies between flags.
