More... nothing new


This from the September, 1957 Flying Models magazine

Quote:
Reports of modellers losing flying fields are appearing with greater regularity and it is surprising how ' few modellers, or model industry people, know about this problem. This apparent lack of interest stems most likely from the existence of alternate programs which, even though they are inferior to past programs, take the edge off of immediate concern.

. . .

The time has come when modellers must take note that our society has changed, expanded, and advanced. Those of us who remember taking a nickel bus ride (or trolley) to a flying site out in the country, and only 15 minutes from our homes, should take note that this is far from possible today. The so-called country of this era is the fast growing suburban area known as developments. An hour trip in metropolitan areas will place today's modeller in the heart of someone's backyard.

The publications through the years periodically take on this subject.
It is interesting the writer pointed out 'model industry people'.
This ties the supply side of the business to the end user.
It also, again, shows the relationship of the publication to the product cycle necessary to keep an economy rolling.

The AMA, of course, has some special emphasis on this subject.
