CS57 came back from the printers today and is being sent out. It contains articles on:the Development of Plastic models in the 1950s, an interview with Jonathan Mock (Airfix's decal man), a listing of all the kits made by Airfix up to 1981, more news from the archives and more.

Also my new book "60 Years of Airfix Kits" (It's actually 62 or 63 years depending on your view as to the release of the Golden Hind!) is currently at the final proofing stage and should be out at the beginning of July.

I received my initial copy of "60 Years of Airfix Models" today. Simon Watson of the Aviation Bookshop has received his initial order.

He will be selling them at Yeovilton, this weekend and I will be signing them at Telford.

The rest of the books will arrive around the middle of November. It is current up to the end of August (B-17, etc).

Crowood will be selling them with a discount which pays for the postage.

The rest of the copies of "60 Years of Airfix Models" have now arrived at Crowood's warehouse and back orders are now being fulfilled.

The Aviation Bookshop still have some signed copies available. Crowwod is offering them on its website - www.crowood.com - with a 20% discount plus £2.50 P&P, which makes it £22.50 delivered.

Hi James, I thoroughly enjoyed 'talking Airfix' at Telford. I met several of my Club members who I knew previously only by their addresses and I met several modellers from the various forums.

Don't know if I can write another book in time for next year's show, but I'll enjoy researching one!!

Happy reading, Jeremy.
