November 1956 Young Men CoverTable 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. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

October 1928 Air Trails first edition Cover - Airplanes and RocketsFollowing on the heels of Air Trails: Hobbies for Young Men magazine (October 1928 through October 1955) was the replacement Young Men • Hobbies • Aviation • Careers. It lasted for a mere 13 issues before being re-named American Modeler. This issue, November 1956, was the final edition, and included an announcement of the name change. The reason given was that readers were more interested in a concentration on strictly aeromodeling topics. Personally, I liked the mix of full-scale aircraft and aerospace career articles along with the modeling aspect.

Thanks to Bob Balsie for scanning the pages.

Street & Smith's All-Model Magazine Featuring the Best in Model Planes, Radio Control and Model Boating

In response to the ever-increasing demand for a model building magazine devoted to the model plane, radio control and model boat enthusiast, Street & Smith Publications, Inc., announces that effective with the next issue (December 1956 - on sale nationally November 8), this publication becomes "American Modeler."

In the forthcoming December issue of "American Modeler" you will find the best in model editorial reporting. Highlights include the first complete report on a brand-new air-model competition that may well become the biggest free flight event ever, a helpful, interesting report that everyone can understand on a new model engine, and an important "here's how" feature directed to every newcomer to control line modeling.

Top-notch columnists and contributors include Howard McEntee writing as only he can on "Radio Control"; Walt Jefferies offering scale views of the Martin P6M-1 Seamaster; Dick Everett presenting "West Coast Modeling"; and H. A. Thomas with his incomparable "Sketchbook" drawings. Specially selected projects like Cal Smith's radio-controlled guided missile ship, Walt Musciano's scale Lockheed Lightning P-38 control line plane and Lloyd Curtis' contest-proven "Curtis Special" stunter make this a real collector's issue!
