Thank you for highlighting this, Paul. I'm afraid this happens sometimes (feels like it's happened a lot recently!). We add the magazines & books just as they come in to us, so these pages were probably missing when this issue was scanned by the contributor. Perhaps an earlier reader cut out the pages to build from? If anyone out there is able to scan the missing pages and share them with us, we'll be very grateful :)
Mary : Model Builder 1973/09 September : RCL#1901 : 17/07/2017

FYI pages 31-34 are missing in the scan.
PaulL : Model Builder 1973/09 September : RCL#1901 : 17/07/2017

Hi Skippy - we upload the magazines & books just as they come in to us, which means this page was probably missing from the paper copy when it was scanned by the contributor. I'm afraid this happens from time to time. I guess the original readers sometimes tore pages out for scrapbooks, bedroom walls, to share with friends, and so on. I know that's what I did in my youth with magazines - I still do! Can anyone out there with a paper copy of this issue possibly scan page 44 and share it with us?
Mary : Model Aircraft 1954/02 February : RCL#1902 : 15/07/2017

I have downloaded Model Aircraft 1954/02 February (RCL#1902} and see there is a photo on page 45 that refers to an article on the facing page. Unfortunately that page (44) is not included in your scan. Was it missing from the publication or just overlooked in the scanning process?
Skippy : Model Aircraft 1954/02 February : RCL#1902 : 15/07/2017

Thank you John, that's useful to know.
Mary : Aeroplanes : RCL#1894 : 13/07/2017

I get blank pages occasionally when I use Firefox. When I cut and paste the link to another web browser it works fine. This also happens with the plans site occasionally.
JohnLeB : Aeroplanes : RCL#1894 : 13/07/2017

The download works ok here and no one else has reported any problems (yet). Might be something at your end? If anyone else is having the same difficulty with this title, please let me know.
Mary : Aeroplanes : RCL#1894 : 08/07/2017

Hi Mary - I've got 264 completely black pages. Is it me or you ?? Best Regards !!

Hello everyone, I have returned from my holiday in sunny Slovenia :) It is a very beautiful country with lovely people - I can highly recommend a visit. It will take me a couple of days to catch up with the email that arrived while I was away. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. Mary x

Steve and I are having a few days holiday over Christmas, so it will take a bit longer than usual to reply to your messages. We wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy new year :) Mary x

You might have noticed that we've stopped adding patents to RCLibrary. We felt that interest was waning and decided that 282 is probably enough for now :) We are planning to replace this stream of content with something new soon, probably 3-views. But my son goes into hospital for major spinal surgery this week, so new initiatives are on hold til he's home and fully recovered. I hope you understand. Thank you for your ongoing support for, and interest in, RCL, Mary x
