Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which all began in Mayo, MD. There is a lot of good information and there are lot of pictures throughout the website that you will probably find useful, and might even bring back some old memories from your own days of yore. The website began life around 1996 as an EarthLink screen name of ModelAirplanes, and quickly grew to where more server space ...

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.

Veron Velox Kit on StuntHanger.com - Airplanes and RocketsMuch more so in the pre-Internet days than today, obtaining or even knowing about model airplane products in foreign countries was difficult. Unless an aircraft modeling magazine, of which there might have been three or four in 1960, happened to report on something like this Velox kit from Veron, in the UK, there was almost no way most hobbyists would ever learn of it. My guess is that most model magazines published in foreign lands were brought back to the U.S. in the duffle bags of military members and their families. Velox models have recently sold on eBay for more than $100, and there is a fairly extensive Velox thread on the StuntHanger.com forum.
