One of my lifelong hobbies has been building and flying model airplanes. I am thinking about trying to assemble a museum of sorts of older electronic radio control equipment, and exhibiting it on RF Cafe. Some of the early tube transmitter and receivers would be really nice. So, if anyone out there has old RC equipment, engines, kits, etc., laying around just getting in the way, I would be more than happy to relieve you of your clutter.

Some of the items do actually have collector value as can be found on eBay and other sites, but I hope to be able to build a meaningful display without breaking the bank. Items do not have to be in working order or even in really good shape as long as they are restorable. Donation of items will be particularly appreciated, and full credit will be given to the contributors.
