Aircraft modeling has undergone significant changes over the decades - both in technology and personal preferences. Magazines like American Aircraft Modeler, American Modeler, Air Trails, Flying Aces, Flying Models, Model Airplane News, Aero Modeller, R/C Modeler, and Young Men • Hobbies • Aviation • Careers, Model Aviation (c1959), and other magazines including even Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and Mechanix Illustrated, 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. Here are some of the advertisements you might remember. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Flying Aces changed its name to Flying Age in April 1944.
