A magazine covering flying and radio-controlled model aircraft. According to the publicity: ‘Model Airplane News’ magazine has been the world’s leading authority on model airplanes since it began publishing in 1929. The magazine’s content includes product and plan reviews, building hints and how-to articles. Early pre- and post-WW2 issues of circa 48 pages each are the most interesting, as they feature articles on both models and real aircraft of the day. There are now typically 122 pages each issue, with many b+w and colour photos and detailed scale plan drawings. It includes feature articles on modelling, kit reviews hints and tips etc. It also covered plastic aircraft modelling for a while.
