Big Book of Boys’ Hobbies


Neely Hall.

The Big Book of Boys’ Hobbies has been prepared to provide a large variety of ideas of interest to boys. Following the trend of the times, a generous section of the book has been devoted to the latest types of model airplanes—indoor and outdoor models, ‘‘flying sticks,” flying models that look like real ships, and scale models.

The subject of model airplanes has had a large following since the first flight by the Wright brothers, but every boy has taken up the hobby since the transatlantic flight of Colonel Lindbergh, it would seem, from the demand for plans and material kits.

As an instance of the demand from one source, the author has personally superintended the cutting of balsa sticks for more than ten thousand models supplied to his readers.

There are plans in this book, also, for galleons, yachts, and other non-sailing models, interest in which is second only to that in model airplanes, and whatever the boy’s other preferences he will find them among
the fifty-one chapters.
