I have been looking at your Ray Gaedke artwork for the Lindberg model car company in the 1965 catalogue. Here are some of the original artwork used on the box tops [see pics 003-007 above].
PatC : Lindberg Hobby Model Kits : RCL#2015 : 20/03/2019

Thanks to everyone who pointed out this issue was missing a page. My lovely husband, Steve, has fixed it & the complete version is now available to download.
Mary : AeroModeller 1943/05 May : RCL#2442 : 15/03/2019

Here's the exact reason I never showed up in an RCM cover! Those LEGS, madam, look at those LEGS !!! To our chagrin we never see any of those in our flying fields.
Miguel : RCM 1979/09 September : RCL#2433 : 14/03/2019

According to the contents page, this issue of Model Maker is missing several pages at the beginning of the issue. The contents lists articles beginning on page 392. However, the file begins with page 402.
David : Model Maker 1956/08 August : RCL#2419 : 13/03/2019

Added list of Contents, thanks to psh.
Mary : Scale R/C Modeler 1982/12 December : RCL#2431 : 04/03/2019

Hi RD - If you download the magazine, you'll find it on page 53.
Mary : RCM 1976/08 August : RCL#2127 : 16/02/2019

Added list of Contents, thanks to Paul.
Mary : Le Modèle Réduit d'Avion 1952/12 December : RCL#2417 : 16/02/2019

Must agree. Many great articles. I built 'Le Hun' after drawing up the plan to full size and it is very competitive. I have a few old MRAs from 1952 - 1953. I shall scan and post here as I get the time. It does take a few hours from building models so please be patient. MRA #1 had the minutes of the first meeting of the CIAM in 1937, these were lost during WWII so I presented this magazine to the president of the CIAM to update the records when I attended CIAM in Paris 1987.

Apologies!!! I messed up the download link for today's RCM (December 1981). I fixed it just now and it should work as normal. Mary x
