Jim Shelley's The Magic of the Midlands and the Black Country EXTRA SPECIAL PRICE!
Jim Shelley is the designer of the "Maltese Falcon", a 260cc model(?) aero engine (See centre pages). He also builds large scale model aircraft, restores vintage motor cars and motor cycles, and has his own jazz band. All these, and more, appear in this book which we have had in before, but it is also a celebration of the talents of many model and other engineers, mainly working in the IC field, to be found in the Midlands. Interesting, fascinating, and opinionated at times, but always enjoyable. Well produced 90 page A4 format book full of photos, many in colour. Paperback, published by the author to support The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association to whom the profits will be donated.
