Virtual AMA Museum Tour


Takes a little while to get used to the controls but it's a trip through the 30's to the 70's covering model aviation in general. You can ogle old kits, engines, accessories and building materials as well as models of all types. Amazing the number and type of items made available to model enthusiasts over the years

I've been to the museum and flying site numerous times.
It's actually a pretty neat place to visit. Seeing models that were familiar from the days of RC Modeler and MAN coverage of scale competition events and record setting planes was neat
The craftsmanship of the old balsa models for the old companies like scientifically, Cleveland and others is amazing. Also how things have transformed over the years.
They have a pretty nice collection of old modeling magazines in their library - lots of models and plans to be had with a digital camera and some time.
The flying site too can't be beat. I used to take a small sport model in the trunk on my work trips out to Kokomo, and stop there time and weather permitting.
Some of the NATS events are also something to see.

Clumsy, yes but I wouldn't call it useless at all. Closest I'll get to the place.

I rather enjoyed it and thank E-Challenged for posting the link. Would love to see more about the "Pinball" Kingcobra in the scale gallery. Looks like a fantastic build.
