Paul Bardoe Joins Rapid Eyewear Team

Popular model pilot and RC sales agent Paul Bardoe has joined the Rapid Eyewear team. Paul - who won the BMFA Nationals F5D Competition in 2011 - has worked on a very casual basis as our sales agent to some shops in the UK hobby market for a couple of years now. With immediate effect, he becomes our sales agent for most of the UK hobby store accounts we hold.

Speaking about Paul's appointment, Rapid Eyewear Managing Director John Clark says; "Paul is without doubt one of the best loved characters on the RC scene - and he's a popular agent to boot. I'm yet to hear anyone involved with a model shop say a bad word about him. Paul's appointment is testimony to his success in looking after his existing model shop accounts, and it confirms our commitment to making the ever-popular range of RC Modelglasses as widely available as possible, over the counter."

Paul is also the UK agent for Graupner, and so if you run an RC retail business and you would like to speak to him, email
