Thanks for all your concerns. I tried standing on my broken (now mended) left foot for the first time today! It did hurt a bit but the plates held well so I'm hoping it wont be to long before I can walk fully unaided pretty soon!

Sounds like you did a good job of it ! I guess that going through airport security is going to get tiresome now !

My collection has been put on display at the Dover Transport Museum at last although this is only a temp display. The bespoke display is still on going at the moment. As the museum is now open I have had quite a few positive comments on the display.

Thanks Roy. Its a great honour to have my models on display at a prominent museum like The Dover Transport Museum. Its a small legacy for me and I know that when I pop my clogs they will be going to a good cause. At the moment they are on perminant loan and I can see them any time I like as I am now a life time member! If any of you are in this area visit the museum. Its really great and although looks small has a vast amount of exhibits and models on display. There are often events going on in the grounds and classic car shows etc. Go to there web page and look at what's going on!
