Response to 8 th Army group

Hello Alfred.

Nice group of models you have there, they bring back so many happy memmories, most of my earlier models ended up being used for air rifle practice. I pity the Archaeologist who digs up my parents back green in the distant future. Trying to figure it all out.

I have quite a lot of the old Airfix mags, and they are a gold mine for information. John Sanders articles where well worth reading. as where the others irrespective of the subject matter. The ideas, probelms and the solutions led to a lot more original conversions than is generally seen today. You wanted a Dorchester you had to scratch build it. No resin cottage industry back then.

I was lucky enought to see some of the models by John Sanders and David E Jane at the old British Army Transport Museum in Beverley Yorkshire before it closed down. I think some of them may now be on show with the British Model Soldier Society as part of there national collection.

Many thanks or the trip down memmory lane.
