Hi ser00 I have about 275gb available on my website if you are interested in putting them there. No charge, I have owned my domain approx 10years with no plans on giving it up anytime soon. I only use about 1gb to 2gb at most so the rest is available.

PM me if interested.

Great effort, thanks very much for what you are offering! As I am looking at doing a model of the "Der Jager" home built biplane I recall a build article for a model in RCM around the '70s; could you have a look and post if you have it? Thanks a lot

I ordered a set of plans from RCMplans.com (when they were still faithful in getting their plans out to customers) and I was looking for a build article for the F-117 (February 1997 issue) and I asked if anybody could send me a scanned copy of the article. Well, all I got was that I could pay for the article or buy the magazine from individuals. I thought that this was not very helpful so I decided to look on EBAY and I found and obtained the magazine. I read the magazine from cover to cover and I remember how much I enjoyed the magazine. I decided to see if I could order more RC Modeler Magazines to read. After acquiring a fair number of magazines, I decided that I would scan the magazines and convert them into PDFs for easy storage and retrieval. Long story short, I have acquired, scanned and converted them all into PDFs. All the issues from October 1963 to June 2005. Along the way, I have also collected Model Aviation, Model Airplane News and Flying Model magazines, all of which have been scanned to PDF. So, if you are looking for an article, a review, a build article or whatever, please let me know and I will upload the article so that you and anybody else can enjoy it.

ser00,
I am so pleased find your post. I was involved in the design of the RCM Classic radio and have intended to try to find my copies of the RCM construction articles and scan them myself. I don't remember if the articles started in 1968 or 1969. I would like to get PDF on all the construction articles if possible.

What a dream library. That is a lot of scanning.
What about Fokker D7 from about 1968 and any scale plane from Dave Platt?

Awesome effort on putting all this together.

I would love to get the RC Modeler April 1992 build article for the Ultra Sport 1000 by Jim Feldmann.

Thanks

Glenn

Bat - I wrote the article for the 46" Storch in what I think was the last issue of RCM in 2005. I have a copy of the orig article and the master for the plans. I have also since redesigned the model for elec. It's a tough little model to fly however.

Dan, I have a few boxes of MAN from the 40's thru about 1964. Last time I looked, though, I couldn't find all the boxes. I hope I didn't lose them during my last move. I'll look to see if I have the issue you are looking for.
