Model Engineers Workshop ( aka MEW ) used to be a decent mag, and uk.rec.models.engineering is a useful newsgroup.

For some reason that name triggered a long-forgotten memory of "Practical Mechanics", a monthly magazine edited by FJ Camm in the 1950s. The same chap edited "Practical Wireless", "Practical Television" etc. ISTR that in one of those magazines appeared a long-running series of articles by the Flat Earth Society which triggered my interest in mathematics.

Go to W H Smiths, they have a massive selection of magazines, you can usually read one or two before they cotton on and insist you buy one or leave....
As for news groups, if you use Outlook express as your reader just search the word model under newsgroups....be careful which ones you subscribe to though! (Or not, depending on your sensibilities!)
In all seriousness what kind of models? Boats, planes, trains, gypsy caravans, plastic, wooden....etc etc.

With a friend to hold the camera whilst you turn the pages, one can usually photograph all the non-advertising pages in most magazines quite quickly.
