The Air Age in Miniature

Blank slug

Our treatment of model aircraft began as an account of my trials and tribulations in building a 1948 airplane model kit. Since then, we have developed a wealth of information about model kits and contests during the "Air Age" and the page was very slow to download. On November 25, 2009 we split the material into four segments, corresponding to the four boxes or "buttons" below. If you came in from a search engine looking for something very specific, click here for the Analytical Index that will enable you to find a specific topic.
