Help!
Missing Tomboy

Hello all,
The Tomboy pictured below was built about 8 years ago. I never finished it or mounted an engine. I sold it on eBay in late 2004 or early 2005 due to a relocation across the country. I always wondered if the buyer ever got it sorted out to fly.
Have you seen my old Tomboy?

Hilda was the wife of David Baker. David was the moving force with SAM in England for many years. I was in the USAF stationed in England in the early 1990's. The SAM 1066 meetings were at David's house. Hilda made food for these as I recall. They were wonderful people and I imagine they are missed very much by the modeling community over there. I got to meet Vic Smeed at David's and several other old-timer notables. I think they did a Tomboy postal after Hilda passed away. I built this for it but never finished it before my move. I need to build another!

Thanks for straightening that out for me - That makes sense, compared to the fact that I was getting confused with the other Hilda Baker!

UK readers will understand

Different spelling Colonel; THAT one was Hylda Baker. "She knows, you know!"

Non-Brits are now TOTALLY confused!
