Model Yachting Collection

Complete collection of ‘Model Yachting’, beginning with issue #9, Fall, 1972 thru current issue Fall, 2019. About 200 issues as I have a number of duplicates from my time involved with production.

Want to catch up on why things are done the way they are? Sailing Tips?(how about a Buddy Black article on how trim an EC12?) Class Historian? Lots of  reasons, Lots of issues to read at your leisure – and it’s a good quality magazine, not a PDF that you have to use your computer or tablet to read. First hundred issues are photocopies of the newletter format they used back then.

You pay for packaging and shipping ( I am estimating a typical case of paper box, about 11x17x12, approx. 50lbs) and throw in $5 for my drink while I’m wrapping it all up.

Paypal works best but you must either cover the fees or do as a friend to friend transfer. Will ship from 63021, probably best by FedEx Ground for the best rate.
