Historic Kit

First it was programmes,then calenders,so why not kits.

We have modellers/historic restorers (I`ll name that man in one).

We have historic restorers yet to hit the water with life size versions.

So ignoring the avalanche of banter that could be released with reference to the above,here is a kit from the early seventies to cringe over.

But you could be on to something - the future is here! Just input the drawing and the 3 dimensional model is, well, produced before your eyes! Apparently by 2020 these will be so affordable that they'll be every where. There go some more jobs!!

Nah, I think that particular salvo (or should I say, serve..?) was aimed fairly precisely in my direction.... I'm still not forgiven for the April Fool's prank I pulled.

What I am expressly lacking is expert advice / assistance...


Very nice of you to offer to help, Graham...




15 - ALL....!
