I have just spent the best part of the last hour smiling while reading your thread Colonel. Apologies for the late arrival, been stretched at work for weeks. The build is coming along well and the banter and old photo's are very welcome. Thankfully I don't have any old snaps from the 70's here in AD....not sure if I have snaps anywhere, though my Dad might still have some in an old album somewhere.
I'm assuming Ilkley model shop is now long gone from the little hut aside the A65! Hence the longer trek to a model shop.
Keep up the good work.
