Press Release: Ron Williams Building & Flying Indoor Model Airplanes

In Uncategorized on September 25, 2014 by nicholasandrewray


The Cooper Hewitt Design Museum of the Smithsonian Institution has added my book, Building & Flying Indoor Model Airplanes to their shop online and at the museum. It was selected for the book’s illustrations and design. It will be interesting to see what influence it has on what people know about indoor with a new wider audience. When it was first published it sold out quickly but the publisher, Simon & Schuster, did not follow up. It was so popular in one bookstore that a copy was chained to the cash register to save the shelved copies from wear and tear. Indoor flying enjoyed a surge in the years following and a second edition was published by Peregrine Smith. This latest edition is a facsimile of the earlier editions and more information about it can be seen at <>. The book is also available from the National Free Flight Society (NFFS) and Sam’s models in England.
