I own these three International Combat Arms magazines. They were in poor condition when I received them, I had to repair the covers. From left to right are issues from March '89, September '89, and January '89. The March issue still has the bonus poster of the USS Iowa.
Wow Stingray. I'm resisting the urge to steal your Pop-Sci collection. XD Seriously, I'm jealous. I only have maybe 10 issues from last year.
I'm happy to add these to my collection. My mother found these at a local antique store, just down the street.
They are from the Vietnam Studies Group series:
- "Airmobile: The Helicopter War in Vietnam", Jim Mesko, 1984.
- "Air War over Southeast Asia", Lou Drendel, 1983.
- "Modern Military Aircraft: Huey", Lou Drendel, 1983.
Inside is a bunch of great material I'm sure you'd all appreciate me adding here at the forum.
Don't know why I keep forgetting to post these, but a while back I found this binder at my local thrift store, which contained issues of Fine Scale Modeler magazine from 1993-1995, though not all of them it seems. It was labelled as "Vol. 1".
OMG super score on those Flight and Aeroplane mags! :O Where do you keep finding this stuff??
Mostly just the local thrift store, library, and antique store here in town. It seems I've made a name for myself as the town rotorcraft nerd and retro tech collector, so most of the stuff I get for free.
Sad news: All of those Pop-Sci mags, the binder of Fine Scale Modeler, Aviation Week, Squadron/Signal mini-books, "Lore of Flight," and the Jane's encyclopedia are all gone from the fire.
Luckily I still have the Aeroplane mags, Flight, ICA, Aero Modeler, and 1983 RAF Yearbook, though. So glad I saved them.
