Aircraft modeling has undergone significant changes over the decades - both in technology
and preferences. Magazines like
American Aircraft Modeler,
Model Airplane News,
R/C Modeler, and
Young Men • Hobbies • Aviation • Careers
were the best venues for capturing snapshots of the status quo of the day. Still, many
things never change, so much of the old content is relevant to today's modeler. 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.

If you want to wax nostalgic over some of the old advertisements, check out
that I have selected.
Many thanks to Matthew H. for donating 15 editions. He discovered a box full of old American Aircraft Modeler magazine n a trailer that he bought, and took the initiative to contact me to offer to donate them (see his video documentary on fiberglass trailers). There are now only 5 missing editions!
