    I was in Manchester staying at The Abby hotel one guy working there was into very large Rc airplanes. Tok me to his garage shop. Lots of giant scale planes. He took me to a few hobby shops nearby. Also met some of his mates in the hobby. I was there on business. We were to merge companies. That time there the cFO quit, news was Chairman of company had a mistress Kady something. It got in the press he was sending her money. Public company its stick tanked. Deal never went thru n comoany crashed by the next few months. At least I got some kits as my prize. I have the old pics but don’t remember his name or company’s ah memories

    Hello Hhager
    Glad could bring back some good memories.
    Exeter is a great place to live, but sadly all the model shops are now closed like so many other locations.
    Take care.
    Regards
    Bill.

    Thanks for the information concerning Bekra Models. Unfortunately Newton Abbot is about a half an hour drive from here and due to my health at the moment I am unable able to drive any distance.

    But thanks for letting me know.

    Peter, if you are in the West Country have you been to Bekra models in Newton Abbot? They don’t sell via their website but they have a good selection of boat stuff and are always happy to track stuff down for customers.
