Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some
form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle
my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which
all began in Mayo, MD
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.
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.
