    Thumbs up AMA's "Model Aviation" magazine, June 2014 issue

    While I do give the AMA some rough stuff every so often, this is not such. My Model Aviation issue came today and just tonight I had the time to go through it. WOW! This issue is by far the most interesting "MA" that I can remember ever being published.

    GOOD WORK, AMA! The best ever. Keep it up. Next time maybe a good article about the AMA Foundation, in detail would also be a significant and interesting issue.

    Later!

    I was a big fan of the "throwback " plans article on the older ducted fan model... can't remember the name off the top of my head. There were significantly more informative articles this time and it wasn't the "buy this and this and this and this" that the magazine has been lately. I liked it as well.

    I usually toss it in the trash without a glance, totally worthless magazine. Wish I could just cancel the stupid thing.

    I'll pay a bit more attention this time.

    Yes... some nice articles included but why oh why do they keep putting that d@mned aerobatic B-29 on the cover? What is up with that? I'd say three times, now? Good grief! Give somebody else a chance. I would imagine that a kid who got his pic with model on the cover would certainly show it to friends. The parents might do similar. This, in a small way, would garner a little more interest in the hobby.

    Are we talking about the JUNE 2014 Model Aviation?
    'cause my copy has a pic of a F-86 cockpit and pilot, no B-29.

    Yup, the Florida Jets coverage.

    The Jan 2014 issue had Mac's B-29 on the cover.
