Summary

We briefly review recent progress in modeling stellar atmospheres. We first summarize various levels of approximations being used in constructing the models, and present a brief overview of existing model atmosphere codes. We then concentrate on a description of our universal computer program Tlusty, and our recent grids of NLTE metal line blanketed model photospheres of O-stars – OSTAR2002 – and early B-stars – BSTAR2006.
