June 1960 Aero ModellerTable 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.
I've been posting some advertisements from vintage Aero Modeller for the sake of British model aircraft and boat enthusiasts who appreciate a reflection back to a time when a stroll through London to visit a hobby shop didn't make you think you had been transported through a Einstein-Rosen space-time bridge (aka wormhole) to Saudi Arabia. I read in the news that the town is quite the different experience these days, but I digress. A couple weeks ago, I posted a listing of some of those area hobby shops that you might remember. More will follow.
