October 1972 American Aircraft Modeler - Airplanes and Rockets Table of Contents

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 hereby acknowledged.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the very first edition of American Aircraft modeler that I ever received, after joining the Academy of Model Aeronautics. My AMA number is 92498.

October 1972

Vol. 75, No. 4

Cover Photo: Monty Groves' photo of his 40-powered replica of the first Lockheed airplane. At the time of the original's design, the company was known as Loughead Aircraft. It is an unusual biplane and an excellent flyer. See pages 40 through 47 for the story.
