Also, at the boot sale, I picked up this Billings model from the 1960s for £7. Again requiring considerable restoration but she has beautiful lines and is fundamentally solid. I have emailed Billings for any plans, drawings and instructions but based on my previous experience I am not holding my breath. So if any one has pictures, plans, instructions which might help I would be happy to purchase them.
Hi Mark, Went through discontinued model plans without luck. The trouble is that it's almost 60 years old now. I am a little disappointed with Billings. They have produced so many models and they could provide a great database to modellers and make some money. Thanks for the response I guess I will have to be a bit inventive. Allen
