Modelers

March 29, 1954, Appleton Post-Crescent
For the time period, these three students most likely had honed their model-building skills on kits of airplane, hot rods, and naval vessels and creating a town to represent American colonial life was likely a breeze.  Do kids even make model kits anymore?  For myself, for the longest time in the '60s, I was entranced with military airplane kits, perhaps due to my brother being in the Air Force, despite having NOTHING to do with the aviation aspect of that service. Still, it was greatly satisfying.  The kits advertised in the comic books I read were always so inviting.
