K&B Fokker D-7 Control Line Biplane Advertisement

May/June 1963 American Modeler Table of Contents

These pages from vintage modeling magazines like Flying Aces, Air Trails, American Modeler, American Aircraft Modeler, Young Men, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, R/C Modeler, captured the era. All copyrights acknowledged.

I do not remember that K&B had a line of ready-to-fly control line models back in the 1960s. This advertisement from the May/June edition of American Modeler displays a K&B Fokker D.7 biplane that comes with a K&B Gold Head .060 Tornado engine. It appears to be plastic a la the Cox control line models. The ad says K&B also had an SE-5A Scout companion to the Fokker for use in dog fighting.

Use the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' inflation calculator to see what items cost in today's dollars. For instance, this $14.95 Fokker D.7 would cost $112.55 in 2012 money.
