Hi Mary, about the accident with the Chipmunk, the picture could be entitled "the dying swan". She was Ms Socorro Swan, a Latin actress famous in the series "Incredible Hulk", "Colombo" and the "Romper Room", a child's entertainment tv program [see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyJbGALB31I&t=262s]

I was delighted to see within the site a rare book packed with so many informations and working drawings for model engines. All people who contributed each a model engine were personalities well established in the field and I was honoured to see their work also in such prestigious magazines as Model Engineer, Stricly IC, Model Engine World or similar. For those who are no longer among us, we miss You a lot.

The poor woman on the cover looks like she's had nasty accident with that Chipmunk!

Thank you Ken for making this available once more. It will be a lasting credit to you and the other Motor Boys.

Thanks for getting in touch Chris :) If anyone out there has a copy of the Dorland they could scan & share - please do! I'll also put a request on the Outerzone 'Wanted' page.
Mary : AeroModeller 1951/08 August : RCL#2121 : 20/03/2018

I just loved reading the August 1951 issue of Aeromodeller as it was one I had never seen before. I was very taken by the article 'Convert the Dorland to Diesel Power'. I tried to track down a plan of the Dorland in my files, but wasn't able to. It must have been published in 1946 as there is a b&w photo of it flying in the October 1946 Aeromodeller and the cover of the November 1946 issue has a colour painting of this attractive model. I can imagine that modellers of vintage models, such as myself, would be motivated to build this diesel conversion if the plan of the Dorland was available. Please keep a lookout for it!!

Hi David, thank you for getting in touch & highlighting this problem. I'm afraid this kind of thing happens sometimes. We add the magazines & books just as they come in to us, so the page was probably missing when this issue was scanned by the contributor. Is anyone out there able to scan the missing page and share it with us? We'll be very grateful :)
Mary : RCM 1976/07 July : RCL#2120 : 19/03/2018

There seems to be some pages missing from the second download section. I can’t find p.102 to continue reading the Sunbird feature continued from page 83.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful 2018. Thank you for your contributions and company over the past 12 months. I'm taking some time off over the holiday period, so won't be adding new titles quite so often as usual. Best wishes, Mary x
