Model Classics Magazine

The following is reprinted from the July issue of the Ampeer, the newsletter of the Electric Flyers Only.  Thanks to Ken Myers.

Model Classics, is not only the BEST but also the fastest growing model airplane magazine.

     Every issue contains COMPLETE digital issues of long out-of-print model aviation magazines and books plus FULL SIZE printable PDF files of selected plans – Magazines and books are all run through OCR (Optical Character Resolution) which means you can have your computer search an issue for a selected word or phrase and, if found, it will go directly to the selected page rather than having to search through hundreds of pages.

     On the other hand paging through the complete digital magazines on a laptop computer or a larger monitor is close to the same as going through the actual magazine without worrying about damaging the fragile pages and without having to come up with an answer to the question “When are you going to get rid of those piles of smelly old magazines?”

     Many hundreds of issues can be stored on USB Flash Drives that are the same size as a credit card.

     The included FULL SIZE PLANS files can be printed by your local office supply store or “copy shop” which means no expensive postage or shipping costs. You can also print out the plans using letter size paper on your home printer and make a wish-book of “Some day I’ll build that” projects to look at during those long winter days while the glue or dope is drying.

     If your wife or girlfriend says, “I don’t know what to get you for a gift”, why not suggest a subscription to Model Classics. It makes a GREAT gift for a modeler.

     Go to to preview the current issue.

     If you set up an account you will get a notice when every new monthly issue becomes available. Even better, subscribe for only $24 for a entire year of 12 issues. Those in the know say i’s the “Best Deal In Town.”

     You can pay using PayPal or by Check or Money Order in US Dollars. We don’t suggest sending cash in the mail, but if you do, make it a 20 dollar and 5 dollar bill folded inside of an 8.5 x 11 inch letter sized sheet and use a #10Ê business sized envelope. I know, that’s $25 rather than $24 but the envelope is not as thick as with multiple bills. NEVER SEND COINS.

     If you pay using PayPal send $24 to

     If you pay by check, money order or cash send $24 to me at the address below
