This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which all began in Mayo, MD.

March 1975 American Aircraft Modeler - Airplanes and Rockets3 Table of Contents

Some things never grow old. 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. I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

The Academy of Model Aeronautics' (AMA) official magazine, "American Aircraft Modeler," (AAM) ceased publication with the March 1975 issue. Here is the cover for it. I was 16 years-old at the time, and had been a member of the AMA since 1972. The replacement magazine, Model Aviation, is still in publication.
