What wonderfully nostalgic memories the above graphic brings to an 80 year old looking back 70 or even 65 years at one of the inexpensive joys we shared as model airplane builders! Only those of us who recognize "LePage's" and "Testors" will relate to this ad from one of the few "AIR TRAILS" magazines in my collection. My best friend Don Slabicki and I spent hours in the Glover Hartley Avenue basement pinning the plans of a model we were to build. My older brother Bud and his two buddies Bill and Elmer Peters inspired us with the beautiful models they were building on the other end of the bench. We pinned them to a board of soft "Homasote" wall board, and began laying those 1/16" inch "stringers to the upper and lower levels of the fuselage on the plane we were building. You can safely call yourself a balsa wood, rubber band propelled model builder if you recall the kit names like "Comet" and "Guillows."
