I'm going to post these here first rather than in the classifieds as I believe there may be more loyal modelers here that will appreciate the information.

I have probably 2000 or so (guess on #) Model and General Aviation magazines I will give to someone who will use and enjoy them. These have been collected starting in the 60's thru the present time and include such magazines as but not limited to ......

RC magazines:

Model Builder
RC Report
Misc. RC Heli mags
American Aircraft Modeler
Flying Models
Model Aviation

Full scale magazines:

EAA Sport Aviation
AOPA magazine

Many years are full volumes and include some of the more desirable RCM's from the 60's. Some years are partial and there are quite a few missing issuesin the mid 80's when I went through a divorce. Some magazines are pristine and some are well worn and dog eared as they were all well read multiple times. I considered them valuable reference material before we had the Internet and treated them as treasures. All have been kept in a dry environment so none have any water damage and they are not musty smelling like old magazines often are.

All will have to go away at one time and it will take a fairly large vehicle to haul them. They would fit in a pickup but it would be a full load. They are currently in plastic storage tubs but I will be keeping the tubs. All will have to be picked up in Des Moines, Iowa as they would be very difficult and expensive to ship and more work than I want to take on. My guess is they will weigh over 1000 pounds as each tub weighs about 80 pounds.

These are a bit like giving away a child as they have been a part of my life for a long time. I need to dispose of them while I'm in good health as down the road, they will be just so much trash for any of my heirs.

Let me know if you would be interested.
