|January 1959 Model Aviation|
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.
In the 1959 timeframe when this edition of Model Aviation was printed, Jetex engines were very popular, likely because the era was really the dawn of the jet age. Everyone wanted to get in on the act. American Telasco Limited, who I had never heard of prior to seeing their advertisement here, exploited the craze by producing a wide range of model aircraft and rockets that were designed specifically for the Jetex engines.
