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.

Solid wood scale models was a fairly popular form of modeling in the 1930s through about the 1950s. Many people who desired to participate in the hobby could not afford to buy flying model kits or even buy raw materials to build from scratch, and even plastic scale kits could be beyond the budget, so carving their favorite plane out of a solid block of pine, fir, bass, or some other readily available softwood was undertaken instead. That is not to say that many modelers preferred the solid wood model and had no interest in any other form, just that this was sometimes an acceptable alternative. Model aviation magazines often published plans for carving and painting 3-dimensional solid replicas of both civilian and military airplanes. This Vought-Sikorsky OS2U-1 Observation Scout (aka Kingfisher) appeared in the February 1941 issue of Flying Aces.

Notice:

The AMA Plans Service offers a full-size version of many of the plans show here at a very reasonable cost. They will scale the plans any size for you. It is always best to buy printed plans because my scanner versions often have distortions that can cause parts to fit poorly. Purchasing plans also help to support the operation of the Academy of Model Aeronautics - the #1 advocate for model aviation throughout the world. If the AMA no longer has this plan on file, I will be glad to send you my higher resolution version.

Carpe Diem! (Seize the Day!)

Even during the busiest times of my
