    Met your brother Paul on Sunday, he came over to the stall for a chat.

    He's sold me all your collection, says you need the space ;). :D

  4. Yes, he told me he had been talking to you, i'm not that desperate yet, lol!, but in time, who knows?, once it gets a bit warmer i'll get everything out and take photos as i have no idea what i have got!, my inventory needs updating as some i fired years ago and have added other bits to the collection which is mostly rockets.

    yes, says RED LIGHT on the label, not easy to see in these pics...... has the Pains Imperial triangle mark on the label, design puts it almost certainly in the 1930's............
