This vintage book is a detailed guide to model aeroplanes, including instructions for design and building, historical information, a discussion of notable practitioners and pioneers, information on engines, and many other related aspects. Highly accessible and full of useful tips, this volume was designed with the beginner in mind, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of aeronautical literature. Contents include: "History of Model Aviation", "Construction", "World Record Models", "Compressed Air Motor", "Compressed Air Driven Models", "Gasoline Motors-Jopson-Midget Aero Gasoline Motor", "Steam Power Plants", "World's First Model Flying Records", and "Dictionary of Aeronautical Terms".
