The UK and Europe's Control-line Carrier-Deck Site!
This is our version of the late lamented AMI/Aeromodeller magazine’s “Webwalk” feature. For those that used to read it, Mike Evatt trawled the web for interesting aeromodelling stuff and came up with some super sites. I’m rather proud to say that this site was the last one featured in the last “Webwalk” in the last AMI!
If you know of other interesting, useful or just plain amusing items, please send your suggestion for inclusion to the Webmaster!
