The date on Wylam’s art for the P-47D Thunderbolt is December 1944. At the time, Air Age Publishing was 15 years old, Model Airplane News was a relative upstart and William Wylam was producing his fantastic art for us.

The B features full-time 4WD via unique rim-drive wheels, each encircling a brushlless-motor-powered prop that allows full quad-copter flying capability. The carcopter is still in prototype stages (we found the B on Kickstarter), but it looks production-ready. Take […]
