"One consequence of the rubber shortage has been that aeromodellers cannot obtain pneumatic tyres for their models, and the small but enthusiastic band of race car fans are very much handicapped."

Mr Rupert Moore, the artist who designed the covers for Aeromodeller from 1940 through to the end of 1950, certainly knew his craft. Visually appealing, perfect flowing execution and mastery even within a 3-colour range, he also certainly knew his aeroplanology to get every detail right. Later there was some graphic work of this kind in the 50s - 60s but these were a sorry shadow of the former period. At the time Aeromodeller was of course "The Model Aeronautical Journal Of The British Empire" but coincidentally with the change of cover style the motto in January 1951 also changed to the pedestrian, nay, plebeian "Covers The World of Aeromodelling". What a double let down, thankfully I wasn't there at the time to see it! At the time Mr Atlee was the PM, but his successor Mr Churchill was unwilling or unable to reverse the Aeromodeller tide.
