Aeromodelling (RCL#1065)

Aeromodelling - cover thumbnail

"Aeromodelling, believe it or not, goes back further than man-carrying flight - the first successful flight by a powered model took place in 1848, and by a piloted aeroplane in 1903. The 1848 model used a steam engine, and in 1871 a Frenchman successfully flew a rubber-powered model of surprisingly advanced design."

This book is a treasure for me because it has Vic's autograph. He sent it to me way back in 1965!! When I was starting my aeromodelling career I subscribed to Aeromodeller. After a few years, and after building and flying several of his fantastic models I decided to write to him because at that time (1965) he published this book from another company (Foyles) and not by MAP so I did not know where to order a copy [Eduardo is from Colombia]. He graciously offered me to buy one for me and send it via Air Mail. I sent him the money and he autographed it before he mailed it!!! It was a wonderful surprise. I have very carefully kept this book with my most dearest objects.
