My Model Airplanes
(Kirt Blattenberger)

As mentioned on many of the pages of this Airplanes and Rockets website, my interests in model aviation has covered a pretty wide variety of aircraft types. Beginning with dime store balsa gliders and rubber-powered airplanes, I eventually moved into Cox .049 powered control line models, then on to Fox .15 and Fox .35 powered control line planes, and finally on to radio control sailplanes and power planes (nitro and electric powered).

I have begun chronicling all of the models that I can recall having had (or currently have) on individual pages. Admittedly, there is really not much to show for 40 years of modeling, but that's the way life went for me; it was always a matter of priorities. Some of the pages thus far are merely titled place holders, but over time they will all include useful information. These pages will include photos and stories of my own, as well as data and relevant photos that I can find from like-minded modelers. Full credit is give for all material that is not original.

Here are a few links to pages I have regarding my days of yore:

- My neighborhood, Holly Hill Harbor

- My model airplanes

- My model boats

- My model helicopters

- My model rockets

- My model train

- My woodworking projects

- My photos of earlier times

- My Southern Senior High School Yearbook (Harwood, Maryland)

     • Senior Class 'Official' Photos

     • Senior Class Childhood Photos 

- Parole Plaza in Annapolis, Maryland

This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which all began in Mayo, MD. There is a lot of good information and there are lot of pictures throughout the website that you will probably find useful, and might even bring back some old memories from your own days of yore. The website began life around 1996 as an EarthLink screen name of ModelAirplanes, and quickly grew to where more server space ...
