Free downloadable books/periodicals with model plans website

Just thought papermodellers might find this website useful for downloading scale aircraft model plans in different scales as well as books on modelling.

https://rclibrary.co.uk/index.asp

Use this lovely website to search for downloaded magazines or books on mostly model aircraft plans like Aeromodeller, Model Airplane News, Scale Models, Modeler, Profile Aircraft, etc.

Cheers,
Aadil.

Very nice find.

Many of the models and plans I have found bring back many memories - especially the Aeromodeller ones!

Thanks for sharing it!

Thumbs up

Thank you for this.
Some of those publications have 3-views and different color schemes for the aircraft.

Very interesting reading.

One of the most valuable links I can remember. I had no idea it was possible to get pdf copies of what I've probably studied more than any other printed matter during my teens in the late 50s to early 60s.

And I had no idea there were so many Swedish model catalogues! For those interested in that narrow field, please have a look at this link, which I got from your source.

Many, many thanks for this

Leif

A big thank you to everyone (Philip, Dedek, Lief Ohlsson, SCEtoAUX, at6, chicharrero, C9B and Kevin WS) who liked the link and I'm glad it was something that brought back fond memories from olden times.

I loved the book by W. Wylam with scale drawings of aircraft as well as aircraft radial engines and the Scale Models Warplanes Special issue. The Model Airplane News, Aeromodeller and other magazines of that time are really worth seeing to know the kind of modelling work that went on during those times.

Cheers,
Aadil.
