Default Milcott Specialist

Radio Control Modeler did two reviews of these radios in the May 1977 and May 1978 issues. I would appreciate it if anyone who has these issues would scan the articles and post them here.

Thanks!

You can order copies of articles in most magazines from the AMA Library.

Unfortunately, there were no 'reviews' of the radios, just a one-page 'quick-look' of each.

I've included the magazine covers, just as a reminder of the old RCM........

Good old "West Coast Girlie Magazine" as they used to call it. Thanks Bob.

I remember that cover with the float plane - really I do! I had a subscription to RCM back in the 70's. Good magazine, good covers, too.

HI Mike,

Sorry that there wasn't more... At least the covers were some kind of compensation...

I remember when RCM meant Really Cute Models....

Hugh Milligan was the man behind the Millcott radio. The last I heard (2-3 years ago) from him I think he is retired somewhere in Oregon. I have lost his contact info but you might try a people search on the internet if you still need info.
