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

Model Aviation Comics of Yore - page 8 Comics from
1950s through Mid 1970s Vintage Model Aviation Magazines
The first comic on this page appeared in the January / February 1963 combined issue
of American Modeler. The bottom on
is from the June 1960 issue of the British model aviation magazine Aero Modeller. I am scanning
new model aviation comics as they become available - and as time permits. If you have
editions of any of these old magazines and would either scan the comics and e-mails them
to me, or perhaps send me the magazine (I'll pay shipping), I'll be glad to post them.
