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!
Just created a channel on You Tube called scaleworldwebscom which is a bit of a mouthful but scaleworld was already taken. I'll be adding any decent video footage I make and will keep you up to date whenever I add anything new.
First film on You Tube is of the Avro Vulcan XH558's fly-past over Filton Airport in Bristol as part of it's Diamond Anniversary Tour. Here's a link:
Somebody from Zambia takes the total to 89!
THE 90th VISITOR TO THIS LITTLE SITE OF MINE IS LIBYA!
Bolivia brings the total up to 91!
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.
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 (and therefore part of Europe!) it doesn't have it's own flag but I thought I would give it a special mention here. Bienvenu!
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.
Maine makes it 44!
The 45th state to visit is Mississippi!
West Virginia brings the total up to 46!
Changed the montage so now you can see the states that haven't visited yet. Only five to go to complete this montage now! Spread the word across America and lets get all the state flags on here - anyone know any modellers in states not shown above?
Ok, so I'm going a little vexillology crazy here. Never looked at the Canadian province and territory flags before and I'm stunned by them - what beautiful and striking flags!
Friday the 24th of November 2012 saw the 2000th visiter to Scale World! Thanks everyone for your continued support. I'm still adding to the site so if there's anything you want to see on here please get in touch or why not join?
Monday the 31st of December 2012 saw the visitor numbers top 3000 - what a great way to end the year! The site only started in May and I never thought it would be so popular.
On the 23rd of January 2013 a visitor from the Netherlands became Scale World's four thousandth visitor! Thank you all for your support!
On the 24th of January 2013 a visitor from Turkey took the number of visitors in January to one thousand - the first time Scale World has had a thousand visits in a single calendar month!
