Here is a set of two new beautifully done reprints on building rubber powered model airplanes originally published in the 1930s and 40s.
One reprint is called the “ABC’s of Model Airplane Building” first published by the Megow Model Airplane Shop showing many ads of the great kits Megow sold at that time. Also included is a very good history of model aeronautics and a great explanation of why airplanes fly. There is also a section on the tricks of carving props, all kinds of great hints on better model building, descriptive terms used in aeronautics as well as plans and instructions on building a simple glider, rubber powered hi-climber, a flying scale airplane (Monocoupe), a non-flying scale airplane (Mr. Mulligan) and plans for 4 other outstanding airplanes.
The other book is called “Building Model Airplanes That Fly!”. It contains everything you need to know about building flying model airplanes including tools needed, all about props and carving them, and winding and launching. There are 10 great plans and instructions for planes for beginners’ rubber models.
These are books that no real model airplane builder should be without. Order extras for your modeling buddies.
These can be ordered from me by sending a check to Scott Cannon, 6 Holly Lane, Covington, La. 70433 or online by clicking below. Price is $24.00 for the set of two books which includes shipping.
