Mary : Scale R/C Modeler 1983/12 December : RCL#2322 : 26/10/2018

I love the advert on page 79 for solid scale model ducks - I don't think they'd fly though.
Daithi : Scale R/C Modeler 1983/12 December : RCL#2322 : 26/10/2018

Many thanks to psh, who has found, scanned & shared the missing pages 57-64 [supplementary file above].
Mary : RCM 1978/01 January : RCL#2311 : 24/10/2018

Sorry Min, we only have the magazine pages that are sent to us.
Mary : RCM 1978/01 January : RCL#2311 : 21/10/2018

Great to see a full scan of RCM including the ads! Lots of info on kits and radios from the 70s that brought back wonderful memories. However, pages 57-64 were missing and hoping they can be added.
Min : RCM 1978/01 January : RCL#2311 : 16/10/2018

Thanks to everyone who pointed out the download for this title wasn't working. I've fixed it just now. Sorry for the delay - I've been at work, only just got home.
Mary : RCM 1981/12 December : RCL#2305 : 08/10/2018

I've uploaded the missing page 164 - many thanks to psh :) It's a separate file for now. I'll incorporate it into the main title file when I have time.
Mary : RCM 1981/04 April : RCL#2257 : 04/09/2018

A disappointed reader has spotted that page 164 is missing from this issue of RCM. Does anyone have a copy of the page they can scan and share with us?

I recently had an interesting email exchange with Michael Jones, who's looking for information about, or scans of, the British aeromodelling magazine, 'Model Aviation'. According to Michael, "Ron Moulton had one of his designs published in it, so it must have been quite a respectable publication. The magazine seems to have been started just after the War in 1946, and the latest plan date is 1950 - so it was up and running for about 4 or 5 years. Publishers were Ian Allan Ltd, who also published the Model Aviation Planbook. Aeromodeller price at the time was 1/3, so magazine price would have been about the same. One control line plan was priced at 4/-. Magazine content was various - free flight, control line, jetex, rubber power, glider - but no radio control. Some of the plans are tracings or copies of US designs - Luscombe Silvaire, Cumulus, Hotshot. Some of the older modellers may have copies. If so, it would be nice to have some details." If anyone out there knows more, or has scans of any issues, please email me. Thanks in advance, Mary
