I've still got a Fox 2.5cc glow plug motor I bought from Henry j Nichols when I was about 13 or 14.

I haven't flow model aircraft since I was 16, but you never know......

I also have a lot of fuel tanks and control line handles (couldn't afford RC back then), and I may well have some Aeromodeller annuals.

Also got all my old Cub and Scout scarves and a collection of woggles (which probably have a completely different name these days).

In a large suitcase in my parents attic, every kind of Airfix soldier from every period in history are found untill the case is close to bursting at the seams. I personally liked the WW2 italians, they all wore ties as part of their battledress :lol:
US paratroopers and German paratroopers for that matter were very cool, practical combat uniforms of WW2 that are now commonplace in modern armies :D

Fools And Horses mobile phone holder. You could probably fit about 3 modern phones into it.

A primary school friend who I am back in touch with now, has admitted his envy of my Shadow 2 Dinky toy for the series UFO Image

The AirFix toys brought on a wave of nostalgia, but what would really make me misty eyed is this Image

Happy days. :P
