    Lucky find... saved from the dump

    I have one as well, minus the decals as the previous owner took them out and stored them in books and forgot where he put it I didn't find out until I'd bought it. It was in the early days of then appearing on Ebay so was reluctant to try and return it Luckily I found somebody who scanned the sheet so have something to work from regarding replacing them I have the steam roller as well

  11. It's all very well this speculation regarding Telford but what about tomorrow? They have only announced one kit this year ( I think ) and the Telford one is two so surely there is at least one more Buccaneer tomorrow!!!

    Stories from the courts.

    Some years ago I was on the jury for a case of stolen scaffolding. The defendants ( there was three) case was they found it lying presumably dumped on the side of a road in Harwell Atomic Research Facility. The judge immediately said it must be theft as everything belongs to somebody, even if you chuck something in the ditch. that belongs to either you or the ditch owner. What made it worst was the owner was claiming it was about ten times the amount as much as it probably really was. The defense strung it out for 2 or 3 days calling all sorts of witnesses about all sorts of things even a traffic police officer who was called to testify that the tachograph disc used in the lorry was useless. The judge was getting more and more irate and kept reminding the defense council the same thing as said before. On the last but one day after his closing speech the defense council asked to be excused the final day to hear the judges summing up as he had another case to attend and was told by the judge in no uncertain terms that he was to be in court the next day or else. When the judge summed up he was scathing that there was a not guilty plea and we were directed that we had to find them guilty. The amount stolen was immaterial and should not have part of this case. He refused to sentence them and said he was going to calm down and instructed them and the defense council to return in a months time. I was told much later that they received a custodial sentence which at some point was rescinded on appeal. Four days for a case that should have been over in a morning if they had pleaded guilty. What made it worst for me was that we were asked to do this second case as it wouldn't take long. My boss at the time went ballistic as I kept telling him it was another day.
  14. That is a superb build I will look forward to seeing it close up
