Eh, there are a lot of books out there on model airplane building. I guess I had a preconceived notion that this book would provide more detail to custom type scratch builds. It doesnt. While it does provide useful information as to practices involved with scratch or kit builds, it does not provide much detail.

In other words, to read this book while having in your mind you want to build an airplane.. reading this book will give you maybe the kind of information someone in the hobby could give you while sitting on a park bench.

This book is chock full of hints for both beginner and expert alike, but as many have mentioned here, it desperately could use some form of organization -- especially an INDEX! Aside from the book being an authority on rubber-motor aircraft modeling, it's highly dated.

Still, some editing could have helped-- the book is all over the place, providing tips on landing gear, wings etc. across different places in the book. Even though I've only built about two airplanes, any modeler would appreciate a good reference that they can flip open for advice on a particular part of their build. Not something you can easily do with this book.

I'm sure modelers everywhere would welcome a modern version of the book, as websites, YouTube videos and forums for this fun craft are often scattershot as well.

Very few books I have read on this subject simply toss you into the hobby like this one. It is truly a "Full Immersion" technique, as the first chapter takes you through, step by step, on building your first Rubber Powered Model Airplane. You will be done in a few hours and you will have a model that floats lazily upward then dreamily back to Earth. From there you will increase the complexity of the models before long you will be taking on large scale rubber scale models. If you have even a passing interest in model planes, you need this book.

This book didn't tell me anything new. It's just a nice addition to the library! It's in decent condition and worth the price.

This is a great book when starting to build and fly rubber powered flying model airplanes. The book is mainly about building model planes. Gives basic building techniques through how to carve props. A super reference book. I gave my 1992 copy away recently so this is a replacement copy for me. Join the Academy of Model Aeronautics and the National Free Flight Society and get involved in a great hobby.

Would've been 5 star if it went even more into required equipment. Wanted more stooge info. Still a great book for any level builder and I am happy to have it
In the unlikely event that someone would wish to build a real model airplane instead of a ready built in the far east, powered by out runner electric motor, or enormous petrol engine, they could discover this almost forgotten thrill of something you have actually created yourself, right down to carving your own propeller, and then after a careful trimming session, seeing it fly, perhaps catching a thermal. I hope you remembered to light the dethermaliser fuse?
Highly recommended.
