Yep, the guy on the right with red shirt , sorry I spelt his name wrong. Good guy, he gave me a trip over the Cairngorms and a touch and go on Loch Morlich in his Thurston Teal. Cant recall the model builder on left. Pair of 60s if I remember. Nice model. David Thurston,full-size flying boat designer, was present at model trials.
