Thanks Lee for taking this very worthwhile GB on. I saw that one of Simon's last posts was in the Latest Acquistions thread. He had bought a few kits, which he will now sadly never build, one of which was this...

I have managed to get hold of one so that will be my entry. It's coming from Ukraine but should be here in time for the start.

Hi Lee,

In memory of Simon, I will be building a totally new F-108 cable reel trailer for the V2 Rocket. I've binned the old one and will be using the following,

I'll only be using the trailer without the sides as a base, the rest will be scratched from Evergreen. It should end up looking like this,

Thanks for taking this on Lee. Don't worry, I reckon because of it's nature, it will run itself.

Here's mine.
No plastic kit. As Simon loved to add 'Scratched Bits', I thought it a nice idea to completely scratch build something in his memory.

As to what it will be, I have absolutely no idea.
I reckon I will just have to wait for some inspiration, which can sometimes come from some strange directions........

Ron. I was thinking that yesterday evening that it would basically run by it’s self being most of you have been in a group build. Very interesting what your going to come up with after viewing that photo.

Colin. Glad to have you and I just added you to the list. Yes I don’t recall him building a “Wingy” but remember it’s what YOU want to build.

I'm in.
It's taken a while but I've decided I'm going to finish my first stalled build from this forum, the second 95th Rifleman from my 'Bought at Cosford for a Fiver' thread from last year. I met Simon there and I think it's a fitting connection.
This is where I got to

there WILL be pewter!
