What aviation or military tech-related magazines do you own?

Post the aviation or military technology-related magazines you own.

I only have a few Aviation Week issues from 2005 and Popular Science. I need a bigger collection. X_x

I own these three International Combat Arms magazines. They were in poor condition when I received them, I had to repair the covers. From left to right are issues from March '89, September '89, and January '89. The March issue still has the bonus poster of the USS Iowa.

 
I also own these two issues of Aviation Week, August 20/27 Special Double Issue, 2007 and December 1, 2008.
 
The last image is of my collection of Popular Science magazines. I own almost every issue ever printed after the 80's to the modern day (it's VERY difficult to track down all the ones before then).

Wow Stingray. I'm resisting the urge to steal your Pop-Sci collection. XD Seriously, I'm jealous. I only have maybe 10 issues from last year. no

I'm happy to add these to my collection. My mother found these at a local antique store, just down the street.

They are from the Vietnam Studies Group series:

- "Airmobile: The Helicopter War in Vietnam", Jim Mesko, 1984.

- "Air War over Southeast Asia", Lou Drendel, 1983.

- "Modern Military Aircraft: Huey", Lou Drendel, 1983.

Inside is a bunch of great material I'm sure you'd all appreciate me adding here at the forum. wink

Don't know why I keep forgetting to post these, but a while back I found this binder at my local thrift store, which contained issues of Fine Scale Modeler magazine from 1993-1995, though not all of them it seems. It was labelled as "Vol. 1".

Mostly just the local thrift store, library, and antique store here in town. It seems I've made a name for myself as the town rotorcraft nerd and retro tech collector, so most of the stuff I get for free.

Sad news: All of those Pop-Sci mags, the binder of Fine Scale Modeler, Aviation Week, Squadron/Signal mini-books, "Lore of Flight," and the Jane's encyclopedia are all gone from the fire.

Luckily I still have the Aeroplane mags, Flight, ICA, Aero Modeler, and 1983 RAF Yearbook, though. So glad I saved them.
