Airplane model kits never seem to go out of style. For decades they've been favorites for generations.

Many of us have been building these planes for many years. We've probably built most of the popular kits. But model companies today are reaching for the unusual and different aircraft from around the world, which is a big bonus for aircraft modelers.

From Revell, Hasegawa, Fujimi, Trumpeter, Academy, there are dozens of model companies worldwide coming out with model kits of aircraft you don't see every day, or may have never seen.

Model aircraft kits continue to sell and be popular kitems. But you don't have to build the same plane over and over. Now you can build some that few will see at a model show, and they will just look great in your collection. Talk about a conversation piece!

Even though they might be an obscure airplane subject, that doesn't mean you can't have a blast builiding some of them.

So we've thrown in some concept plane models, race plane kits, tesing aircraft. Some are traditional plastic kits, some are resin. But all of them are interesting.

Civilian planes play a large part in American history, and common Piper Cubs to bush planes from Alaska, there's a lot of choices when building civilian aircraft kits and

Commercial airliner models are popular as well, in many different scales.

Don't forget the heroes of today. The rescue planes and helicopters, and the fire planes, dumping hundreds of gallons of water on forest fires. There are a few of these models available as well.

These are some exciting aircraft and airplane model kits to build.

These are common aircraft and plane scale models.

They make great projects to add to your model collection.
