December 1954 Air Trails

December 1954 Air Trails Cover - Airplanes and RocketsTable of Contents

These pages from vintage modeling magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, & Young Men captured the era. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

These two pages of advertisements form Sterling Models are from page 62 of the December 1954 issue of Air Trails Hobbies for Young Men magazine. Sterling Models is no longer in operation, unfortunately. All copyrights (if any) are hereby acknowledged.

Use the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' inflation calculator to see what items cost in today's dollars. For instance, that $5.95 Chance-Vaught Corsair F4U-1 control line model would be $50.94 in 2013 money - a 10x increase in inflation! I paid about $60 for the kit on eBay a couple years ago, so it definitely has collector value that outpaces inflation.
