The sad news has reached us that David Boddington passed away on 10th April after a long illness. He was 77. 

The former RAF pilot, model designer, kit manufacturer, writer and magazine editor leaves a lasting legacy and will be greatly missed.  

There's little that Boddo, as he was affectionately known, hadn't achieved throughout a prolific aeromodelling career. David was without 'side', always friendly, helpful and full of great stories.

To many a great friend, he was one of the hobby's true giants and will be greatly missed.
