CCI is Cross & Cockade International, is an England-base group
self-described as The First World War
Aviation Historical Society. They publish four very worthwhile journals a
year. Their website is:
http://www.crossandcockade.com Membership is open to anyone. Several
wwi models listees in several countries
A similar US-based group, The League of World War I Aviation Historians,
also issues a journal titled, "Over
The Front (OTF)four times a year and, again, several wwi models listees in
several countries belong.
Their website is: www.overthefront.com.
Issues of both publications have been graced with the artwork of several
of our wwi models listees.
I have the RFC communiques but don't remember where I got them. IIRC, it
was from a bookseller in England that
specializes in military books. Perhaps, another listee can help.
Another source of some good wwi info is Camden. They have a lot of neat
technical books that take a pragmatic
approach to engineering and building miniature engines, trains,
blacksmithing, and a lot more. I mention them
only because they were my source of vols. 1 & 2 of the Air Board Technical
Notes (pre-1918) for use by RFC maintenance types in
the field. They also offer books on rotary engines, Clerget Patent Aero
Engines and some interesting ot stuff.
Their email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Snail mail is:
Camden Miniature Steam Services, Barrow
Farm, Rode, Frome, Somerset BA11 6PS.
