Aircraft modeling has undergone significant changes over the decades - both in technology and personal preferences. Magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, Aero Modeller, R/C Modeler, and Young Men • Hobbies • Aviation • Careers, Model Aviation (c1959), and other magazines were the best venues for capturing snapshots of the status quo of the day.

Whether you are here to wax nostalgic, or are interested in learning history, hopefully you will find what you are seeking. As time permits, I will be glad to scan articles for you. Here are some of the advertisements you might remember. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
