Re: Newark & District MFG new members

Re: Latest Journal

So what are you proposing we do? Big toy Aeroplanes are expensive no matter which way you look at it and take a lot of space to store and transport. Along with making sure we can legally carry on doing what we do, we need people to carry on doing it I agree. Is the image of the lma today attractive ...
