  1. Emil & The Detectives by Erich Kastner. Had me gripped aged 9 and probably set me up for taking up murder mysteries and the like in later years. steve
  2. The bustop that I used to go home from school was opposite the Gordon Keeble showroom and factory, so this one was easy. steve
  3. Black Country Communion: Joe Bonamassa, Glen Hughes, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian. Good hard outfit. steve
  4. I saw The Firm in a half-empty Wembley Arena in 1985. Sadly they didn't live up to the hype. steve
  5. Big VDGG fan here. Saw them at Reading Rock Festival in 1971. Have you tried any Peter Hammill solo albums? Can heartily recommend The Silent Corner Of The Empty Stage and Chameleon In The Shadow Of The Night. steve
  6. Great restoration Matt. I build several of the Merit kits when they were readily available in the 1960s and early 1970s but not that one. Would love to see them all reissued! steve
  7. Daniel, Those wheels are looking good. Neat idea about the two shades of black on the tyres. steve
  8. Love that! Must look out for one myself. steve
  9. Another Biggles an Swallows And Amazons reader here! Books that began to really make an impression on me were Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, George Orwell's 1984 and, for social commentary, The Road To Wigan Pier. However, the book that really imprinted my 'world view' was Robert Tressall's The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, with its incisive explanation of the workings of capitalism. Later, I also took in Herman Hesse, Satre and even some Nietzsche. The latter leading me into an interest in philosophy. steve
  10. That is one very smart automobile! (Whatever it is.) steve
  11. Despite having been a car nut since I was knee high to a grasshopper, The Hudson Hornet was not a car I knew until I joined this forum. 1950s cars from the US were (and to certain extent still are) rare in the U.K. in those days. The only one that made any real impression on me back then was the Studebaker Hawk. The Hornet, I now realise, is an elegant and well designed car that looks "just right" and not, to British eyes, overly flashy. Many thanks to you for helping me appreciate a real classic with your excellent models. steve
