Some things never grow old. These pages from vintage modeling magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, & Young Men captured the era. I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
This advertisement for the United States Rubber Company's T-56 rubber appeared in the Annual Edition of Air Trails. T-56 was a very popular choice for free flight modelers back in the day.
I posted another ad for them from an April 1957 American Modeler. United States Rubber Company was one of the original 12 companies used to calculate the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) for the stock market on Wall Street. In addition to manufacturing automobile and airplane tires, it also supplied the free flight model world with T-56 rubber for powering.

The Power of Champions!
There's nothing like long-lasting, power-packed T-56 for rubber-powered planes. Made of fine Brazilian para rubber,
"T-56" is scientifically compounded to take maximum winding ... return a high percentage of power ... give consistent
propulsion, flight after flight. Insist on T-56 and be "power sure."
