January 1941 Flying AcesTable 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.
People try to sell these advertisement pages from vintage magazines on eBay all the time - usually for ridiculous prices. It's hard to believe anyone actually pays for them, but there must be enough to make it worth while for the seller to go to the trouble of photographing and posting the pages. If you are satisfied with either viewing the page online or printing out a copy for your hobby room wall or scrapbook, then search through the AirplanesAndRockets.com website to find many instances of vintage advertisements (see list at bottom of page) - and I'm adding new - like the full-page ad by Berkeley Models, ones frequently. Here are two other Berkeley Models ads from the December 1954 Air Trails and July 1957 American Modeler.
