The boys book of model aeroplanes.. Published 1910

#Plans and #photos of vintage #1911 flying models, propeller diagrams, gliders, single/twin prop-pushers, biplanes, monoplanes and motor construction. Also contains chapters on the history and science of aviation as of 1910

 


Without a doubt one of the most intriguing books I have ever read on model airplanes. I had no idea that model airplanes (aeroplanes) were being made in 1910 & 1911, just 6 years after the #Wright #Brothers flight. This was the standard #reference book about constructing these models as evidenced by its being referenced in Kitecraft and Kite Tournaments. Unbelievable amount of illustrations for a very early work. If you are interested in early flight and/or model airplanes (aeroplanes), this is definitely the book for you.
