August 1961 American Modeler magazine cover     [Table of Contents]

Even with so many changes in modeling over the years, some things never grow old. These pages from vintage modeling magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, and Air Trails captured the era. Whether you are here to wax nostalgic or for the history, enjoy your visit. I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.
