Introduction
Scale Aviation Modeller International is a modeling magazine which started in January 1995. It's content is mainly focused on model kits, so inside you will find news about the plastic model kit industry (kits, decals, accessories, books etc…), model kit reviews, build articles, show reports, Columns, profiles, scale plans, etc…

Rather than give you a list of content in a classic way (which is available on the SAM Publications webpage anyway), I will rather list all the aircraft types featured in each issue with a detailed account of the information provided. I think it will be easier for everyone to find the information needed given the mass of what is present in each issue.
