This Sketchbook was scanned from the December
1957 American Modeler, page 6.Most building tips are timeless. Even in this era
of ready-to-fly (RTF), almost-ready-to-fly (ARF), bind-and-fly (BAF), etc., there
are still many modelers who build their own aircraft. Nearly all top tier competition
fliers build their own models, as do aficionados of vintage (aka old-timer) models.
Some guys just would rather build than buy a pre-build airplane, whether from a
kit or from plans.
This page has links to every edition of Sketchbook
that I have so far.
