#PatchTuesday, June 2017, week 4

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, the Plymouth Motor Corporation sponsored a series of contests that culminated in the Plymouth International Model Plane Contests, more commonly known as the Internats.  As we approach Nats season, lets look at some of the event logos and memorabilia for today’s #PatchTuesday.

With the "PAL" wings at the center, this red, blue and white decal has "Plymouth 2nd International Model Plane Contest" around the outer edge.
