We have lost Frank Baker he was a life-long designer and builder of model airplanes. He published numerous articles about
constructing radio-controlled scale models of military aircraft in magazines such as Model Aviation. He
was a founding member of the Madison Area Radio Control Club and served a term as its president. The
club awarded him a plaque for his 50 years of service to the club. In 2015, he was inducted into the
Academy of Model Aeronautics’ Hall of Fame. His 2006 B-24 is in the National Model Aviation
Museum in Muncie, Ind.

I had made the acquaintance of Frank's family several years back when I was again building a MAN Nov 1956 Frank Baker design ME 109 following the model I built as a teenager in 1960. I was never aware Frank had as many accomplishments to his credit well beyond model airplanes. Attached is the obit.

Disregard the photo in the previous post, the attached of the Frank Baker ME 109 is the correct photo.
