Welcome to the Unofficial Airfix Modellers' Forum

Here are a few simple guidelines regarding posting material and conduct on the site.

Activation of Accounts

All new accounts are scrutinised by a member of the Admin Team and then a notice sent by e-mail to your registered e-mail address. This helps us spot spammers.

Code of Conduct

Please try to be polite and reasonable.

1 - Insulting remarks to individuals, whether direct or inferred, are strongly discouraged. Suspension, or a ban from the Forum may result, following discussion about such behaviour by the Admin Team.

2 - Any remarks aimed at modelling organisations, societies, retailers, manufacturers, forums or websites must be justified with evidence. Balanced criticism is always expected. Remarks made which are against the spirit of this rule,will be discussed by the Admin Team and may result in suspension or a ban.

3 - Please do not make comments about activity or postings on other forums on this forum.


Signatures, which appear under your postings, can only consist of text. A picture is not allowed in the signature. The focus on this forum is the text of the posting and any associated photographs of models or other modelling subjects.
To avoid 'spamming by signature', links to other sites and forums are discouraged. If you wish to add such a link, please consult with the Admin Team beforehand.


All users may define or upload an avatar in their profile. It should be a graphic file no larger than 120 by 120 pixels. The admin team reserve the right to ask members to change their avatar, if we feel that it is in questionable taste.

Topics to avoid

This is a model forum. Its primary purpose is for discussing models and modelling subjects. Please refrain from posting religious or political posts on the forum. Wishing someone a 'Merry Christmas' or 'Happy Easter' is perfectly acceptable.


This site is intended for use by modellers of all ages. Please be careful with your use of language. Using asterisks to mask out swear words is not allowed.

Conflict Resolution Procedure Between Members

1 - Try and sort it out via the forum Private Mail (PM)

2 - If you're going to disclose PM to the Admin Team, let the other person know in advance (Ideally get their permission).

3 - Accept that, at times, no agreement will be reached and that you'll just have to agree to disagree.

4 - If still dissatisfied, express your grievance, via PM, to a member of the Admin team and send a copy of the same to the other person.

5 - The Admin Team will acknowledge receipt of your grievance. We will then discuss it and make a collective judgement and inform both parties of that judgement, giving clear reasons for that judgement.

6 - If still dissatisfied, the parties may either accept that they are dissatisfied and stay on the Forum, or leave.

Posting of Copyright Material on This Forum

You may post images and material to which you hold the copyright to on this website. The copyright remains with you. Any picture you take yourself is your copyright material

Please do not post material for which you do not hold the copyright. All pictures posted elsewhere on the internet are copyright to somebody, and so should not be reproduced without permission.

It is permissable to post a link (URL) on this forum to a picture on the internet.

Some sites, such as Wikimedia Commons, have libraries of pictures which may be reproduced, and have licences which give the terms for usage.

Some organisations (such as NASA and other US Federal Agencies) have policies which allow their images to be reproduced with acknowledgement.

It is the responsibility of the poster to check the copyright of all images. The Admin team reserves the right to remove images or other material which infringe copyright. We also reserve the right to remove any material which we consider offensive or illegal.

Posting links to other forums

There is no issue with posting links to other forums -- as is evidenced by the number of those links to valuable content scattered throughout threads on this Forum. Links to any other web-based resource are welcome provided:

1 - Do not quote significant chunks of CONTENT from other Forums in your posting. A simple link is usually enough. Remember, they are their words, not ours.

2 - Please introduce the link with a few words or a sentence explaining what's there, so that people don't HAVE to click on the link to find out what's at the end of it.

3 - Be sensible. Mischief-making will not be tolerated. Don't post a link to another Forum because you want to poke fun at what the Members of that Forum are saying or doing, or comment on that Forum in general, or because there's a debate going on there that you won't (or can't) contribute to on that Forum. Just to clarify that last one -- if we have a discussion going on about the Italeri Sunderland, then it's absolutely fine to say "so and so over at Britmodeller says this about the exhausts -- see link -- but I don't agree, and this is what I think."

In general, if you're going to link to other forums, be as polite and considerate of their members as you are of our own, including their rights to their own content.

Decisions by the Admin Team

These decision are taken collectively and are final.


The content of ALL posts here are the opinion and or thoughts of the individual poster, these opinions and thoughts are not necessarily the same as the sites owner, administrators or moderators and are neither inferred nor implied to be as such. The Administration Team of these forums take no responsibility for the content of this forum and if you have issue with anything said within these forums please take this up with the individual poster as we can not and will not be held responsible for any content herein. This includes any legal action that may arise or be threatened due to anything said, implied, inferred, posted and also any images and links posted here.

Thank you,
The UAMF Admin Team
