The model aircraft magazine Radio Control Models and Electronics (RMCE) has a web site (www.modelflying.co.uk) which in turn has a forum. To cut a long story very short, some members of the forum came up with an idea for a mass build of a model aircraft in a set time frame. Then with the support of Steve Webb models at Frodsham in Cheshire (http://www.stevewebb.co.uk/) the idea then came forward to make it a charity event mass build of the"Webbit" model aeroplane. The charity that will receive the donation is Arthritis Research at £5.00 a model. Pretty good going!
Later came the suggestion of having T shirts to mark the occasion and that was proving somewhat problematic. Again to cut a long story short, IPJ Aeroshirts has applied the Mass Build logo to a number of products the entire profits of which will be donated to the same cause.
