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've been posting some advertisements from vintage Aero Modeller for the sake of British model aircraft and boat enthusiasts who appreciate a reflection back to a time when a stroll through London to visit a hobby shop didn't make you think you had been transported through a Einstein-Rosen space-time bridge (aka wormhole) to Saudi Arabia. I read in the news that the town is quite the different experience these days, but I digress. A couple weeks ago, I posted a listing of some of those area hobby shops that you might remember. More will follow.
