The Rivet Club; for a small sum each month you receive a regular

The American site
www.oldwoodtoys.com has a section "LETS GO FLYING!", where there are
details of 10 or so US firms who produced "toy" model aircraft. Something of a
nostalgia trip even though the models are from America. Click the gliders for

Link from Chris Ottewell in a recent
Leicester AeroNutz got a mention on 25th
December when I "consolidated"
pages to do with
the Peterborough Timer. I said then that the AeroNutz web pages were no
longer available, since then Jon has found them on
the Wayback Machine where the front page from 2003 has a photo

The AeroNutz website and newsletters are well worth a browse if
indoor flying interests you.
Just come across

In the web site links section there is
a list of
on-line publications that could be of interest to PMFC members. Perhaps you

few days ago Jon sent the link to a video by David Gozzard from the University
of Western Australia where David quotes from a PMFC web page on the
"Peterborough Timer" and then goes on to explain and make his version of the
Click the photo for the video.
Seeing the video caused me to go back through all
the Peterborough Timer entries.
Click for the
consolidation page I made, which includes a link to a Ferry 500 timer for E20

Greetings" front page, which will be in place for the next few days.
