That is very cool! I remember reading Keith’s model airplane book, recommended by Milton Dickey (Dickeybird), and shortly learning afterwards that Keith also had written sci-fi books. Very interesting guy…. Also, love his model designs as they are unique and have character.

I have the book and a few of his novels. I also built one of his designs.

I picked up on both model planes and SF within some months of each other. I recognized the name but thought it was just a coincidence until I read the author notes on the cover flap of the model airplane book.

Even publishing all his model designs in the magazines and the couple of boolks still wouldn't keep a house over anyone's head... Thank goodness for SF...

Bipeflyer,

I remember your Zoomerang - sharp looking.

My favorites are the Zoomerang, Little Red Twin and Twin Lizzie.
