Hi Scott, Russell and Fernando

Sadly Steve (BARV) Cruickshank passed away suddenly on the 18th of August after making these last postings on the net. He was clearly working his magic up to the last days.

You can see some of the fine tributes on the page below. I only knew the man a very short time but he did help to pass on some imagination into a lot of modellers like myself still trying to learrn.

His genious and humour is greatly missed!! All the best to his family.

A toast to the BARV

Hi all

Russell, Dad was in the process of remoulding the wheels as they didn't have the right no. of studs and tread. I think he used resin.

Fernando, I'm not sure on the details but next time I go over to see my mum will have a look up in the loft. Send me a P-M and will see what I can do to help

You can view more of his work here http://s50.photobucket.com/albums/f329/BARV/

Nige, Thanks for explaining the situation I would have done it but haven't checked in as much as usual.

Hi Steve

Good to hear from you. Hope you will keep working on your dad's projects as his talents have to have rubbed off on you that they are completed. I hope we can catch up for a blether at Perth this year to see the MAN in all its glory.

All the very best Steve
