Phil

Some neat scratchbuilding going on their.

This has the makings of something very special.

Is it a bit early or have you given any thought to colour schemes for this one?

I really enjoy seeing something that was almost 'lost' being brought back to life.
A fascinating project that just keeps getting better and better.
