When I was little, Mom and Dad would get my siblings and me things to keep us busy on the drives of our vacation trips. One year they got me an airplane lick-and-stick book. I still have most of it. Saturday I had some time to waste, so I...

Many thanks to TonyOliver for submitting this magazine. Now my collection of ancient Aeromodeller Magazines is almost 100% complete.
DannyMZ : AeroModeller 1952/05 May : 09/02/2020

Many thanks to Tony Oliver for sharing this Aeromodeller issue with RC:ibary. It's been on the Wanted list for ages.
Mary : AeroModeller 1952/05 May : 08/02/2020

Hi there. The way to build the fuselage is to make templates of the formers (to the inside shape of the former), these are mounted onto a rod which goes through the centre of each one and spaced according the side view of the fuselage. You...
MikeHollamby : Halfax Catalogue : 08/02/2020

I had the luck to see the Red Arrows in the late 1980-ies when a fairly small airfield close to the place where I live had some kind of jubilee. It was an absolutely thrilling sight to see those sleek trainers perform their immaculate...

Hi Daithi, I stumbled upon this with a bit more on the Slingsbys, and the other link is something that left me breathless due to the quality and sheer beauty of the artwork. I may sound exaggerated but no, I mean it literally! Here they...
MiguelMorao : Slingsby Sailplanes : 07/02/2020

Haha! That's a fair point, Daithi. No idea why there's such a big gap, I'm afraid. This is just what came in to us at the time - which is so long ago now, we no longer even have the contact details of the original contributor. If anyone...
Mary : RCM 2005/01 January : 31/01/2020

I keep a copy of all the magazines you put out Mary, and I'm grateful (my own collection of hard copy disappeared years ago during the slight altercation here) and a missing month or two is quite understandable, but how come RCM is missing...
Daithi : RCM 2005/01 January : 31/01/2020

Apologies everyone for the broken download link. I think I've fixed it now & the download seems to work OK. Please get in touch if you still have problems. Thanks to Gerrit & Arnaldo for letting us know :-)Kind regards, Mary
Mary : RCM 2005/01 January : 20/01/2020

You're right, Dan. I'm afraid we just share the scans that are sent to us. We don't have the original books or magazines. We added this title to RCLibrary very early on, in 2015. I'm not actually sure who gave it to us in the first place!...

Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy, healthy new year. Cheers! Mary x

You've probably noticed the new look to RCLibrary. We're making a few changes to the site template so it works better on different devices. It's not quite right yet - please bear with us as we tweak things. Any feedback from you about what you do/ don't like, is most welcome :)

Hi everyone - apologies for the lack of new titles in the past few days. Also if you've emailed me recently & you're still waiting for a reply. My son is having major spinal surgery tomorrow, for the second time in a couple of years & I'm struggling to focus on plans, planes & magazines. Please be patient over the next week or so. I will catch up eventually, I promise. Mary xx

Hello everyone! Steve and I are heading to the seaside today, for a few days R & R. I won't be working on RCLibrary while I'm away, so I'm afraid there'll be a few days with no new books or magazines. Normal service will resume when we're home :) Mary x

Happy Easter, everyone :) Mary x
