October 1972 American Aircraft Modeler - Airplanes and Rockets 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.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the very first edition of American Aircraft modeler that I ever received, after joining the Academy of Model Aeronautics. My AMA number is 92498.
