For the benefit of all the aeromodeling community, I have been
collecting images of vintage airplane, helicopter, and boat kits which have appeared
on eBay. Over time, it has been a very
good source of photos of it boxes and labels, plans, and all the included kit components
- balsa, plywood, hardwood, music wire, canopies, and hardware. Hyperlinks to external
websites is kept to a minimum because pages disappear frequently. Copyrights, if
any, are hereby acknowledged.
While I never had the pleasure of owning an AAMCo Lou Andrews Aeromaster Too biplane, it was one of the many kits I though someday I would build. After 61 years of existence, there still is no Aeromaster Too kit in my collection, and at this point likely never will be. The Aeromaster Too was a four-channel ("full-house" as it was known back in the day) aerobatic biplane with a 48" wingspan for .45 to .61 in3 displacement glow fuel engines. It used balsa, plywood, and hardwood construction along with music wire components for the landing gear and cabane struts.
The photos presented here were downloaded from multiple Aeromaster Too kits listed on eBay. They typically sell in the $125 to $200 price range, which is very comparable to what a new kit of similar size and complexity would sell for today.
Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some form
of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey
through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which
all began in Mayo,
