Ultimately I did it the simple way. Just built a top and bottom half over the plan. Easy to glue together and make with wire wing struts already stitched to centre formers. It only added the weight of 2 strips of 1/16 x 1/8th balsa which...

Hi Mary and Steve. What a classic issue! Now that I am locked down for a few months I was looking for a workshop project and found the Sparey .8 diesel engine for home construction. Plans are very clear and so I told a few mates on RC...

Hi Fred - it's good to hear you're enjoying RCLibrary. We don't have any paper listings. This website is our 'catalogue' and everything is available for free download :)
Mary : Best of the Golden Age of Flying Models : 26/03/2020
The general view by those who have been on the sidelines, so to speak, is that model aircraft are neat things and fun - but they are really toys…not so, I sincerely believe. Modeling is basically important in all of engineering. The narrow...

This is the last issue of RCM we have. Feels like the end of an era! Happy to add more if any of you have the scans.

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 Tony Oliver for sharing this Aeromodeller issue with RC:ibary. It's been on the Wanted list for ages.

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...

As regular RCL readers will have noticed, I haven't added much new to the Library for a while. Didn't someone say that life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans? I'm afraid life is leaving me less and less time to work on RCL. So, I've reluctantly decided not to add any new titles for now, while I work out what comes next for the site. Mary x
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
