Iv'e got 3 myself still boxed and possibly unused. Keep thinking about getting shut but never get round to it. Steam roller and a traction engine plus something I cant see properly at the back of some cuboards. lol

We had daughters, but now I have a 9 year old grandson, I am revisiting all the childhood stuff. He loves the steam engines and is getting better at the Airfix models (not that I let him do much yet).

It'll be the lathe next!

Heck they were rich kids' toys back in the early 1970s when I was a school. Not that I might not have been a rich kid but, coming from a shooting family, we had a BSA Airsporter Mk1 and a BSA Meteor instead. As for model static steam engines if I wanted to see one working I could see a real one if I asked my father to take me down to tne family factory to spend a day with "Uncle Ken" in the steamhouse.

Im 70 next week   Just got my first Airsporter  Bit of catching up to do
