50+ Years of Aeromodeller magazines collection

Brian Lavis has handed on to me the last of John Bailey’s aeromodelling items to clear so that Glynis has a clean house to sell. Included in these is John’s collection of Aeromodelling and Model Aircraft magazines covering some 50 years and some engines.
I had thought to eBay the magazines but I don’t have time to scan some 600 magazine covers and they would swamp eBay listings if offered all at once.
If someone would like to buy the collection in total I’m sure a very reasonable price could be arranged, or if there is some charitable group that would appreciate the collection I am open to suggestions.

Final JB engines being offered for sale, if no takers I will put them on eBay:

K&B 35 schnuerle ported rear exhaust monster of a motor fitted for pressure and flood off. Appears in good condition. £30.00
PAW 19 DS4 has had some use so call it average condition. £15.00
Cox TD049/051 used in contests fitted for pressure and flood off. £15.00
Fox 35 need spray bar, very used condition £5.00
Fox 15rc very used £5.00
K&B Torpedo 15 glow motor in good condition for this classic motor £25.00
OS Max 35 with two rc carbs and another spray bar, good condition £15.00
Bag of CO2 bits including what looks like a new Modela motor and an old Shark plus chargers and spanners £5.00

Magazine collection and motors can be delivered to Southern Gala, 8Th Area and Midland Gala at North Luffenham.

Drop me a line if interested or with ideas.

Travelling to USA excess baggage or not?

Dear Roger,

How are you?

I am planning on returning this year to compete at the Bissonete and Sierra cup in October.

I am having a lot of trouble with the american airlines companies regarding extra fees for my model box which exceeds the size limit by few inches.

up to now, I had no succes in convincing them to check the box as my second luggege for free or even one time payment. they want me to pay a 200$ fee for each flight. that means 800$ for my 4 flights that are required for me to get to california and back. thats an extra half the price of my flight ticket. this will be very hard for me to pay.. and most probably will end my plan to come

do you have any ideas or expirience with that problem? (maybe some ideas of your European or down under friends that come from once in while..)

Best Regards,
