November 1950 Air Trails Cover - Airplanes and Rockets Table of Contents

These pages from vintage modeling magazines like Flying Aces, Air Trails, American Modeler, American Aircraft Modeler, Young Men, Flying Models, Model Airplane News captured the era. All copyrights acknowledged.

Bill Hutchinson drew many, many comics for model aircraft magazines in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s (and maybe the 1940s, but I don't have any that old). A lot of them have been - and are yet to be - posted her on the Airplanes And Rockets website. "Competition Daze" comics appeared in the November 1950 issue of Air Trails magazine, and has a control line theme. Also being about competition, Mr. Hutchinson integrated a few sports-related ideas into the situation. Control line stunt, speed, and combat are amongst the subjects. I haven't figured out what the punch line is on comic #3. Anyone? My favorite is #9. 

See the list of other modeling themed comics, including others by Bill Hutchinson, in the list at the bottom of the page.
