Response to Re: Excellent
That might have been then Ben, but they have a large stock of items. In chatting to Mike after the museum closed, he asked if I had seen the 'deliberate mistake' on one of the uniforms. On the groundcrew bod, the LAC badge is post war on blue/grey. I pointed out that the first figure, in harnessuit was also wearing post war stripes, to which Mike calmly said 'Oh, I might change that then, as I have lots of other tunics in the store'. Where they get originals, they replace the small number of repro items they have on display from time to time.
As for the Parasuit, apparently the bloke from the RAF Museum went goggle-eyed when he saw it, claiming it was only the second in existence outside their own. 'Well I have another over there' replied Mike!
The RAF Museum have also rung him asking him for material for some display or extension to a display or something, and could he let them have the stuff. he replied that they had a JU88, He111 and Me109 he'd quite like off them. The phone went dead!
