He started his business in the early 70's wanna say 71-72 i think.... He told me once but I forget now what he told me
My Dad has an issue of Model Railroader magazine from around 1976 that has a Cummons Scale Amusements advertisement in it for a ferris wheel kit. I have been told Don must offered them as kits at first, but too many folks had trouble so he started building them and selling them mainly as complete models instead.

Anybody know the years when Don first built some of these models? I can trace the Hamptons from 1983 and I think the Rok-O-Plane and Loop-O-Plane models were built in the early 70's. Think the Grav was produced in the early 90's. I find it interesting on what models were produced before I was born or when I fell into the hobby in 1996.
