Welcome to the Home Page of
Kenny's Old Time Model Airplane Magazine
A bit about me... and this web site's hopes and dreams for the future
I like to read old flying model airplane magazines from, say, 1935-1945. Sometimes I build the models; sometimes I just look. Some of my models fly; some just sit around and look good. Some I never finish. To me, the fun is in floating through the time machine and being absorbed into this fascinating period of aviation, and world history.
The old magazines, Model Airplane News, Bill Barnes Air Trails, and Flying Aces in particular, were the source of these pulp fiction style hero stories, model airplane plans, and current event news articles. By posting small snips of these magazines, I hope to offer a fair representation of this age.
