These pages from vintage modeling magazines like Flying Aces, Air Trails, American Modeler, American Aircraft Modeler, Young Men, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, R/C Modeler, captured the era. All copyrights acknowledged.

United States Rubber Company was one of the original 12 companies used to calculate the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) for the stock market on Wall Street. In addition to manufacturing automobile and airplane tires, it also supplied the free flight model world with T-56 rubber for powering. T-56, along with tan rubber from Pirelli, Dunlop, was considered the cream of the crop back in the middle and late 20th century. Many old timers still lament of its eventual disappearance from the market and treasure their hordes of the stuff from days of yore.

Here is U.S. Rubber Company ad from a 1955 edition of Air Trails.
