Yes that's the one, I remember that it was bigger than I was then, it's a shame there was loads of model shows and model shops in those days, these days you either have ot drive 50+ miles for a decent model shop or order from the internet
are you going to the model show at Sumners pond nr Horsham this year? it was a really nice show last year
