I have just fired off.....Here is the reply, just receoved, Jack.
"hi bruce,it went through about 4 owners and then sat for years and was finally split up and the body went to australia,victoria somewhere and was then hotrodded again with a 455cu in pontiac engine.thats all i know,sorry! i finally have the first proof of the book that my daughter has done,wont be finished till june. i just have this for proof reading.it has come out really good,heres a photo of the cover. cheers gb"

Here are the cover pix Graham mentions.
These are four of the brass models he has built. From memory just thinking about the pix of the models he has built since retirement, 10 years back, there have been a total of about 10. I guess that is about one a year. When looking at the pix of these models he has built, remember no parts for these had previously existed - he hand built every thing from raw materials.
But he has also scratched built a UP Big Boy steam locomotive in 1/43 he has a collection of American cars in this scale. It's unbelievably well detailed.
