A late arrival, mostly due to me because I havent been here in a week to check the mail, but I would like to thank Mr. Robert Royes, who sent me this 1/48 scale M4 Sherman and Fw 190 by monogram. This came with a display, so keep an eye out, Rob[...]

A year ago the restoration was finished and the aircraft is now exhibited in the rebuilt exhibition.
