Ok gentlemen, Beppe is correct Paola will be the contact person for the book.

"Dear Hansen

Thank you for your interest.
For more information you need to ask at [email protected]

OK,
I got answer from [email protected]

She has the book, and I suggest You get Yourself Paypal and then she can easily receive payment for the book + shipping cost.
So include Your postal address also in mail to her when ordering the book so she can try to calculate shipping cost.
The book itself cost 20 Euro (€ 20).

Paola Battaini is secretary F.I.A.M. (Fabbrica Italiana Associazioni Modellistiche).

regards,
Bo

"Dear Hansen

The cost of 1 book is €. 20,00
I need to find out how much it cost to ship the book and then I will tell you the total amount
You can pay with PayPal or Bank Transfer

Now we are closed for our Holiday, I will ship you the book in September

And the author of the book wrote this over at the other classic pattern forum:

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/clas...k-pattern.html

Read post #12

I'm sure this book sell like hotcakes by now and Paula will probably have rather many books that has ben ordered to ship out, after the holidays.
I'm waiting for the shipping cost (I told her my adress) so she can calculate that.
A book like this should be availabe to order online when seen in the mirror, but I suppose they never imagined it could be such demand for it as it seems to be.
I have no problem to wait, it will be nice to have this book for the fall/winter and read now and then,
It is quite an undertaking to write such book that span pattern flying 1960-2019. Just to gather the material and and then have the knowledge what to use in a book can not be an easy task. I suppose someone like Franco Sala has the experience and knowledge to finnish such monumental task, I'm sure he has worked very hard to make the book.

Hi guys,

Paola just emailed me.

"Dear Hansen
how many books do you want?
The shipping cost is €. 25,00 …… the same if you buy 1 or more books…. untill kg.30…!!!!
You can pay via PayPal or bank transfer using this information….."

Maybe we can save some money on shipping if we all chip in together to get more than 1 book at a time. I can bring them in and re-distribute them. The additional shipping will be from me to you via USPS priority mail. Probably a padded envelope if the book fits. Oh let me ask her how heavy is the book and how many books before we hit 30 kg. I think 30kg should cover quite a few books.

Anyhow how many of you are interested in this book anyway. Well Greg will have to get his own since it will be much cheaper in shipping if he goes direct.

Just had an email from Paola and the shipping to me is the same cost, so I will have to try to sort something out my end. Paola stated she is away on holiday until Monday, no problem for me as I am just about to leave for Snetterton race track for a whole weekends motorbike racing (lots of trick new parts, ceramic bearings and some race front forks from Italy)

30kg, I'd guess at least 60 copies.

Well... like you Hansen, I live on an Island, but way opposite, in Puerto Rico. I usually get stuff from continental US for just a few $ more than others on the 48 favored States... so I'm in I guess. Although the currency converter says at this time €25 is about $27.68. Maybe if someone whos in say Texas or Alabama who is more centralized and is also willing to redistribute. Mighty big task tho , either by you or someone else, repacking and mailing dozens of books. Would it be worth it or would it have to be a act of fellowship?
