Traplet Publications publish a wide range of regular magazines, which are the core of the company’s output. There are four dedicated craft titles, on patchwork, craft stamping, jewellery making and sewing. Our hobby magazines focus on radio-controlled model planes, jets, helicopters and cars, as well as marine, truck and tractor modelling. We also cover scale plastic modelling, focussing on and military and aviation subjects.

To compliment our magazines, we also publish a wide range of books and special issues, which enable us to look more closely at different aspects of modelling and crafting – giving the novice and expert alike that extra nugget of information. Our range of books and special issues reflects the demands of our readers, providing them with the know-how that they need to make the most of their hobby.
The best way to learn a new skill or develop and improve an existing ability is to watch an expert in action! With a wide range of practical DVDs produced by Traplet, which we produce with well-known experts, our range of titles has something for every skill level. As well as the full catalogue of Traplet-produced DVDs, we also film using high-definition to further enhance the viewers' experience.
Traplet offers a comprehensive service for model plane- and boat-builders. Part of this service is our ever-growing number of plans, which range in complexity from basic, small-scale plans for the first time builder, to very detailed plans for those looking for a building challenge. We also offer precision cut wood parts for many of the plans we provide, and the number is steadily growing.
Traplet holds a unique position amongst publishers – we have a dedicated film production unit in-house. We have created a wide range of films for hobbyists and crafters; recently we have invested in high-definition filming equipment to further enhance our viewers’ experience. The company can also organise corporate filming to create a professional and attractive package to set your company apart from the competition.
