Model Aviation Comics of Yore - page 4
Comics from 1950s through Mid 1970s Vintage Model Aviation Magazines

Many decades ago, comic strips had a very broad appeal with people. Daily newspapers and magazines often carried a large variety of single pane comics and strip comics. If you are old enough to remember as fairly recently as the 1960s, the Sunday newspaper had many pages of comics that were large and easy to read. By contrast, my local Sunday paper today has only one full sheet (4 pages) with just a small handful of comics, and some are reduced in size so much that they are barely readable.

Mr. Hutchison and Mr. McGrew, along with possibly other artists (signatures missing or intelligible), provided a series of very humorous comics for various editions of American Modeler at least during the late 1950s and early 1960s, of which I have acquired few editions. Some subjects are dated, but many are as familiar today as back 50 yeas ago. Where available, I scanned the comics and replicated them here so that everyone can enjoy the long-ago work of a great artist. More will be added as they become available. Here are comics from American Aircraft Modeler. The collection of American Modelers has expanded and I am scanning new model aviation comics as they become available - and as time permits.

Carpe Diem! (Seize the Day!)

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 ...
