My question relates to the following document - "Booklet - Model Aircraft, "The Model Builders Handbook", 1932 Reg. No HT 16563 By Harold P Wood which is in your colection. I would like to be able to research this booklet, specifically the article relating to the Formation of the Model Aero Club of Victoria, because I am the Historian of the Victorian Association of Radio Model Soaring (VARMS) and hoping to add to its History, related items such as the initial formation of Clubs and the State Association with whom clubs were affiliated. I would like to know if I can access this document, and/or copy the relevant article so that this information can be imparted to others across the field of aero modelling,
