Joe Murray Exhibit (Unionville Hobbies Models)

When you think of Seaton Valley RCMC, Joe Murray was very much a part of the Seaton Valley flying culture and club community
Joe designed and produced prototypes for the Unionville Hobbies kits and also designed the MAAC logo


Joe was a close friend with the original executive members of Seaton and was MAAC Zone Director in the 80’s
He was very helpful and supportive of the original executive in starting Seaton Valley when they broke away from the Toronto Club


Restoring the entire fleet of existing Unionville prototypes was primarily a personal project for me
Almost all of the original kit prototypes were test flown at our club sight on the Seaton Valley Hiking Trail location and early Claremont location
I witnessed many of the test flights before I was asked to join our executive in the eighties
In the early days when we had 12 to 20 student pilots, most of them flew Unionville trainers and I actually have almost all the original trainers except for the Dash 6
I am also preparing a final documentation to nominate Joe Murray to the MAAC Hall of Fame
Folks need to know the routes of our club and what made it special in the eighties and up to present day
So please look at the pdf’s and I can tell the story of Joe and his models


The Joe Murray Model Bush Plane Series is now at the Bushplane Museum in Sault Sainte Marie
