Vintage Issues of Air Trails

Aircraft modeling has undergone significant changes over the decades - both in technology and preferences. Magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, Aero Modeller, and Young Men • Hobbies • Aviation • Careers were the best venues for capturing snapshots of the status quo of the day. Still, many things never change, so much of the old content is relevant to today's modeler. Whether you are here to wax nostalgic, or are interested in learning history, hopefully you will find what you are seeking. As time permits, I will be glad to scan articles for you. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

If you want to wax nostalgic over some of the old advertisements, check out these that I have selected.
