Harry Higley book for RC newbie builders: Model Building is Mostly Mounting

I have a couple of extra Harry Higley "yellow" Books that I got in a batch of RC books I recently purchased. I already have each of these books in my RC library and I use them often!

The first one, Model Building is Mostly Mounting, is the "bible" for building RC planes. If you're a beginner building ARFs or kits, this book is SO helpful. It covers everything from A-Z for building and covering (see table of contents). It shows you how to do things RIGHT the first time and avoid mistakes and disasters later. It has saved my butt so many times!! Lots of pictures make it easy to follow. The book is in excellent condition. $25 shipped

The second one, There are No Secrets, covers painting RC planes, glues/ adhesives, fillets/canopies installations, etc. See the Table of Contents. Another really helpful book, especially if you'd like to do custom finishes on your RC planes. It also covers the different paint types such as nitrate vs butyrate dopes, lacquers, enamels, polyurethanes, epoxy paints, etc. The book is in very good condition, with a couple of creases and wrinkles here and there but still in nice shape. $15 shipped SOLD!
Thanks!

BUMP!!

This is a great book for beginners. If you're new to R/C planes and want to know how to build CORRECTLY, this book will answer all of those questions for you. I have referred to my copy over and over and over again every time I start a new kit.

Thanks for looking!
