Many condolences to his friends and family.
A talented modeller that I was only thinking about the other day with his motorflotte build.
Rest in peace Richard

Likewise, deepest sympathy to the family.

Thanks Nick, I was racking my brain early about his association to Mayhem the Motorflotte build!

That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

From NHP.


could you pass on my condolences please.
I met Rich some years ago and was chatting to him about his subs and such when he mentioned he was making a kit of the Nuclear deterant, HMS Ressolution.........i told him that my best mate at school had joined the sub marriners core and i had to vet him as a friend.....they sent a senior officer up to chat to me whilst i was in uni and we got him a little the worse for the old john barleycorn.........he sent me a letter some weeks later saying it was the best run ashore he had had in years.............told rich this and that y mates fiorst sub was indeed Ressolution................he asked me to review the kit for the model magazines.........which i did...........enjoyed the experience..........he brought so much to those such as myself who otherwise would never have had the opportunity to build a submarine......a very sharp learning curve,but he was very knowledgeable and talked in basics for idiots like me to understand, and but for him i'd never have done one.
please pass on my condollences.
thanks.
