A working platform? I'll have to get the chainsaw to the letterbox! ;)

Working platforms aren't too much of a problem, as many period pictures show wodden types made on base. Quite easy to copy.... :D

So, made a little trip to Cambridge today to get the footlocker. It's only 1945 dated, with tray and in outstanding condition. The seller had 2x double garage sized buildings full of '40 years worth of junk' and knew that he had bought 2 of these footlockers years ago... One had got wet and the bottom plywood had rotted a bit, so he threw it on the fire! He was sure he kept the tray, but despite a good nose around, i couldn't find it, but he's promised it to me if he locates it.

Then i headed over towards the Pelhams, to pickup an A-20 Havoc front u/c leg from Russ Abbey (398th / Nuthampstead group). Russ has a huge WW2 British radio he needs to donate to anyone who wants it. Its not complete, but visually looks like it is, and just needs a clean up for display. Before you get excited, its not a rare radio, and they usually sell for 20-30 from what he told me, but he needs a home for it and it would be a shame to see it end up in Chinese car!
Pm me if you want Russ's contact details.
