  3. David Cassidy

    Sad to hear of his passing, takes me back to my primary school days. The girls were divided into two camps, David Cassidy & Donny Osmond, they were always scrapping over who was best. True 70's heart throbs for the girls, guys just wished they looked like either. Chris
  4. Model of a model club display 1/12

    Many thanks to all for your kind comments, Chocksaway ill take you up on your panel line advice at the next meeting, sharpie in hand. As for the idea of a table on a table, ill leave that to someone braver than me, 1/12 and scaling down aircraft etc was a big enough challenge for me, using the tips of cocktail sticks to add details, smaller doesnt bare thinking about. All the best Chris
