January 1961 American Modeler Cover - Airplanes and RocketsTable of Contents

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

These couple model aviation-related comics appeared in the January 1961 American Modeler magazine. I'm not quite sure what message the first one is attempting to convey, with the guy peering through a seafarer's spyglass to see his model airplane at the end of the control lines. Maybe it is meant to imply the lines being used are really long, or that his model it really tiny. Note the telescope dome in the background. Enjoy!
