One of the bonuses of reading historic out-of-print aviation magazines are the large amount of advertisements they contain. The AEROPLANE and FLIGHT magazines were especially good at featuring many of them per issue, some of which were works of photographic or sketching art, whilst others contained revealing photo's or drawings of a specific piece of equipment aboard a particular flying boat which might be helpful to modelers.

This gallery is designed to save the very best ones for posterity for all flying boat enthusiasts to enjoy once again. These would make a lovely addition to any flying boat enthusiast's 'den' wall..!
