Re: Working model with Stephenson's Rocket

Hi Moonriver, perhaps you should show us some pictures of the machines you have made Pete. Pete, your original post........ "can't make my mind up about the cabinet where the Rocket sits"....appeared to invite constructive suggestions but I don't think playing a game of top trumps gets us...

Re: Working model with Stephenson's Rocket

I took the skirt side pieces off mine and they looked much better for it. Space shot is a lot less common and more desirable subject m...

Re: Questions for Arthur Bolland

You may have scared him into submission with the daunting list of questions, probably need another holiday after answering them all :HaHa: I do hope not. Anything Arthur can recall will be a massive help to piece together information that would otherwise only be speculation. It's rare to get the op...
