Aeromodeller 1958-07

Now that the results of our Readers Survey are partially completed (partially because the final sifting of information from the huge stack of entry forms will take time) we can form some idea as to the composition of "Mr. Average Aeromodcller". But let us first again thank the several hundred readers who went to the trouble of writing long letters to accompany their survey forms. There are so many of them that it is not possible for the Editor to reply individually, but all of these very interesting missives have been read and the ideas and suggestions duly noted for the improvement of your favourite magazine. The age of "Mr. Average Modeller'' is 28 years and he generally enters the hobby around his fifteenth birthday, when he also starts reading "Aeromodeller". lie is generally loathe to pass on his copy of the magazine, retaining same for reference purposes. His schooldays are invariably spent at either a Grammar or Technical School from which he passes to a technical occupation of one sort or another. It is difficult to be specific on this latter point due to the large range of occupations quoted.
