Not a bad haul. Herald vangaurd model five pounds. Two tr3a's open top 4 pounds the other 3 pounds both corgi. The Tr7 was 50p . Now the red tr3a needs a little clean but should i restore the Tr7? Its even got authentic rust underneath!

They will join the stag and spitfire in my little collection.

The respray i can do, how do i get a new screen!

The same way we made our own Model Aircraft Bubble canopies in the 50`s?.  Carve a Blank to get the correct shape polish it within a inch of its life smooth. Get some clear plastic pin it roughly over the blank, Put in Mothers oven, steal `er indoors hair dryer?. Until it warms enough to take the shape. allow to cool, trim and fit?.

Edit:- See, Pete knows how it`s done!!.

I think the most frightening thing is------------------- I can remember the First Blue Peter Programes in Grainy Black and White 405line T-V!!!!!!!.  AND thought I was far to old to watch such a kids programme!!!, probably why I never got a badge😂.

Had to look up the launch date, now sitting here feeling old and depressed.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Hi

The year I started Work!. Sweeping Floors and making tea/ running errands (mostly to the bookies! or for the Bacon Rolls!), for a bunch of "hairy ar*ed" fitters Before going into the aprentice school. Hence why I thought myself "too old" for a kid`s programme.
