I just picked up a bunch of old American Modeler, M.A.N. and RCM mags from the 50's, 60;s and 80's from a local model train shop. I'll try and post some decent pics of a few pages and post them.

Relative to percent of income my memory was in 1960 my dad struggled on a Army Captains salary to justify the cost of some so called high end things that cost a steep $6.99. He bought McCoy engines cuz Fox or Enya were too expensive

Thanks that Safeway gave 5 cents a pop bottle, my brothers and I collected all weekend to buy a $3.95 .049 at the pharmacy on Grand aveneue Oakland California in 1964. My mom insisted ALL my paper route $$ went to my college fund. Turning in pop bottles and mowing yards kept me in props, glue, and glow fuel

sorry for the slight off topic hijack

Seemed pretty close to topic to me. One of the off-shoots of these old ads (at least for me) is to give some prospective as to the perceived "bargains" to be had back in the day.

While those little Scientific "Hollow Logs" were reachable, they were still a challenge for a kid operating on a push-mower / pop bottle deposit budget !!!!

I remember the .5c bottles. I collected many of those old bottles when I was a kid. I remember collecting bottles for a couple of months and mowing a few lawns so I could go to Woolworths and get a Testors .049 powered Widow Maker Dodge Challenger Funny Car for like $8.00! I had a ball with that car. I wish I still had that car. I also sold greeting cards from the ad's in the back of a comic book and getting a COX Miss America Mustang. Man those were the days!!

Thanks.
I recently hit the proverbial jackpot of old airplane mag's from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's and some of them have COX engine reviews such as the Tee Dee .049 and the .010 etc... I'll try and post them soon. I have about 20 mag's and will be getting a lot more here in the next few weeks.

Well...OK, but unless he put a canopy on the top AND the bottom, we're looking at the top, which puts the leadouts on the right wing...but whatever is cool!

Still sorting through the old magazines, and came across this from the April 1959 issue of American Modeler:

Also, spotted this cartoon, and it seemed to speak to me for some reason:

More stuff from the past! Here's a tethered airboat/hydroplane from American Modeler issue April 1960. Check out the spinner on that Thermal Hopper !!!

Don't think this would be a good R/C conversion, but who knows?

Post  Ken Cook Thu Jul 05, 2012 6:50 am

Kim, I really wish that magazine had stayed with us. No magazine that I know of did so much for the modelling community. Truly amazing the knowledge that was passed on and the people who designed the models. What always surprised me was the additional adds for hobbyists to explore the field of aviation and mechanics. My good friend went on to join the Navy and later to become airframe mechanic. The magazine probably had a lot of influence on his career decision. Yesterday I was able to go through many of my mags and indeed I found the article on the F-82 that uses 9 Babe Bees.

The plane was designed by Terry Aldrich and is in American Modeller April 1967. Terry also designed a twin .35 size that used Mccoy .35's. Unfortunately, the 9 Babe Bee F-82 doesn't have plans which actually surprised me. The wingspan is 82" and the fuse length is 44". Having built a Brodak twin F-82, I can only imagine how much power 9 of them would have. Certainly the weight of that model and the power is going to be a handful. The article stated it flew well enough for landing with two and in some cases just one. Ken

For sure..all of the magazines of that era, and this one in particular, seemed to be chocked full of ideas and experiments. Seems like EVERYONE was designing something and throwing it out there for others to ponder.

I'm a particular fan of "Junk Box Engineering" (as if that's not already obvious), and the Hint and Tips articles are always some of my favorites.

I think this has to be the reason for the wild popularity of forums like this one, where the same type of thinking goes on.

(Digging for that thread,,still digging,, more,,almost there,,Bada-Bing!)

Back to the top of the list of latest posts, because someone might like this. Don't know about the price, but it is pretty rare. This thread started with one of these, so I only thought it fitting that it might end here on a good note for someone.

Found this in the Sept 1959 issue of American Modeler...had never seen this one before, and haven't had a chance to check Mark's list over on the .049 Collectors Group.

Guess this was the daddy of the PT-19?
