Super "library site" you & Mary continue to build and manage!! ... plans ... books ... magazines ... WOW!! ... (UNDERSTATEMENT!!)
RCLibrary is indeed a godsend, especially for the books. As an impecunious
student, I could hardly afford all the books I read about in the magazines
and would love to buy. Now, with all of them out of print, I finally have
the chance to have a look, and download all those that might be helpful in
the foreseeable future... Well, IF I live to be 120, that is (I'm 58 now...
and not retired yet).
I find RCLibrary useful even when I DO have the books! One such example is
'Flying Models of WWII', a wonderful 1974 plans book from the USA that,
somehow, managed to cross The Pond to be sold here at a local Hobby store.
The well-thumbed pages are yellow... NOW, thanks to you, I have a very good
PDF (the first one was... *not so good*!) stored in my laptop I can peruse
to my heart's contentment.
Hi Mary and Steve, this is Wonderful simply Wonderful... Your new RC Library is Fantastic... No more words needed... Greetings from Luxembourg Regards
Hi Steve, Thank you very much for getting www.rclibrary.co.uk up an running. This is another amazing resource to the aeromodelling community and I applaud you for your initiative and hard work.
This is one of the more awesome sites for us RC "oltimers". My RC addiction goes back to the mid 70s. Thanks
Just when I think Outerzone couldn't possibly get any better, it does! Great to see your latest expansion. I don't know how you manage to do it all, but I do know the modeling world will be forever grateful.
A lot of interesting stuff here. I downloaded the 1936 Comet catalog and realized I grew up in the same neighborhood as the Comet factory. Pity I couldn't remember the building but did recognize the railroad tracks. Don't know when Comet vacated the building or when they tore it down as there's a Burger King there now. Fascinating to see where we've come from and a little sad that these companies are gone.
Your new record of model airplane publications is a great idea.
Back in the 60's I corresponded regularly with Frank Zaic who documented several decades of model development and left an unsurpassed collection of gems from a rapidly developing era of model airplane development. I consider your contributions to be on an equal level with Frank's contribution...
Steve, Wow, you're a genius. I don't know why this wasn't done a long time
ago. I love it. I get a fair amount of email from people reading my
website, asking where to get a book about building RC planes. I always
tell them that such books are hard to find nowadays, but now I have a
place to send the seekers.
You already do an awsome job with outerzone; this website is by far the best in this category. I can't wait to look at your next one! Hats off for your outstanding work and thank you to contribute to the preserve the history of our hobby!
