While doing a bit of research on model boat fittings I came across this Keil Kraft catalogue on the RClibrary website.

http://rclibrary.co.uk/title_details.asp?ID=1025

It makes for very interesting reading and has a foreword by Eddie Keil and an article by the legendary Vic Smeed.

There's lot's more great vintage magazines on the site too 😁

EDIT.
Check this one out as well:

It has a boatbuilding article by L J Rowell

I used to look forward to this every year, I think that 1964 would have been the last one that I would have got, as in September of that year I got my first motorbike so for the next few years models was the last thing on my mind.

I had just turned 5 in September 1960 and probably had my first bicycle, falling off was likely to have been the only thing on my mind 😭.
My granddaughter has just turned 4 😁.
How time flies 😱
