Local model shops are still trading

No need to go crazy with boredom , you can still buy a kit or a supply of balsa or bits to keep amused while the lock down is in place .

 I have just spoken to Justin at Rapid Rc , June at Weston Uk and Mark at Model world 

They are still open for business although NOT for personal shoppers/callers . 
(no entry into premises) 
Items can still be bought   Online , via Phone ,orders can be taken and paid for over the phone and posted or self collection if you passing  while on an essential journey( Gov rule re essential journeys ) . Model World are  doing local deliveries while they can . Collection and delivery is likely to change or be stopped under the emergency laws being rolled out..

Keep well, keep safe and keep you distance :-)




As you are probably aware by now the government has increased its response to the Covid-19 threat to a near lock-down as of yesterday evening 23/3 .

We at MMFC  now have  close the field for model flying until further notice . Saying its you daily exercise or essential business etc wont really wash with an angry masked up police officer so please stay at home and stay safe and help the NHS to cope .

The BMFA latest update IMO just confuses the issue as  a simple "Stay at home unless its essential in line with Gov directive" would suffice.

I hope you all stay safe and well , that includes not breathing in too much balsa dust and cyano fumes , cough cough ,its different type of cough honest !;from your latest creation . Try and keep occupied as best you can and free  plans can be found at ;  www.outerzone.co.uk  and probably more sites .
If you are in contact with any other members please inform them of the field  closure .

Finally Anyone who has not paid their subs yet for 2020 can you please do so. A rejoining fee of £35 will be payable from the end of March If you have not contacted me . Despite the lock-down we still have to pay the lease on the field etc so please speak to me /e-mail me  

If you  want to deliver you subs to me at my home please make sure all of your details are included and are in a sealed envelope .

I will for the duration of this lock-down accept PayPal for payment but do make sure you gift it to avoid paying PayPal fees . ring me for details

If you DO NOT  intend to rejoin MMFC then please be good enough let me know and return your key.

I will be isolating for the near future due to underlying health issues. Please feel free to call or e-mail  re any queries about building/covering/engines etc and help keep me sane :-)

Until we meet again keep safe and well .Please  do keep in touch on  here or via  the clubs Forum at;


Chairman MMFC


It is with regret that the Club Dinner to be held at the Tudor Rose on Friday 27th March is being postponed to a date in the future, to be arranged.

The effect of the Covid19 pandemic is growing and the government advice will soon be to cancel gatherings and the real fears of those amongst us who will be vulnerable to the effects of the disease means that we really have no alternative.

Let us hope that we, after having seeing this through, can look at a get-together later in the summer.

Stay well, everyone.
