Unfortunately, I do not have that issue but I do know that the missing pages are the Super Kaos plans and you do have the whole Super Kaos article [on Outerzone] archived with the plans at Super Kaos oz5523! That does not help much with the first page of the Pitts article which would be page 26.
Ken : RCM 1973/05 May : RCL#1869 : 14/06/2017

Aarrgghh - another one with missing pages :( Can anyone help complete this issue?
Mary : RCM 1973/05 May : RCL#1869 : 13/06/2017

I noticed that pages 23-26 are missing, which makes the articles on the Super Kaos and the Pitts Special kind of hard to follow. Please keep up the great work!
SimonBlake : RCM 1973/05 May : RCL#1869 : 13/06/2017

I want one of these flying cars!
Mary : Air Trails 1937/09 September : RCL#1864 : 07/06/2017

Hi David - I've just checked and it is slightly strange - thanks for pointing it out! The 4 missing pages have been inserted are at the end of the issue for some reason. Perhaps to allow for one single scan of the plan on pgs 32-33? When I get time, I'll split and re-edit the file. Until then, at least we know where the pages are!
Mary : Model Builder 1973/04 April : RCL#1828 : 03/05/2017

This magazine issue is missing pages 31 through 34.
David : Model Builder 1973/04 April : RCL#1828 : 03/05/2017

Sorry everyone! I uploaded the wrong part B for this title. Correct file added just now :) Thanks to Ted & Nikolay for letting me know.
Mary : AeroModeller Annual 1953 : RCL#1824 : 28/04/2017

Thank you Pit - that's fascinating!

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
