    Nearer 80 yrs than 100......
    Doubt many people today including myself could turn out a model like these........ not sure how I would cope with a plastic kit nowadays.

    Now I've at last got fuel I can go and collect a selection of vintage pyro on Wednesday, ................ 2nd and 3rd groupings of gear from the ongoing supply source that recently provided the size 40 box, stock boxes of rockets and assorted single items.......... more batches to come later next month...... old shop stock clearance. Items are being released for me to buy on a weekly basis, with me doing a collection from my contact every 3 to 4 weeks...... as per usual they're not on my doorstep and involve about a 300 mile round trip each time.
    Better than sitting at a computer all day though..........

    it's full of air.previous owner emptied it as they said they thought it was safer to do so.......
     
  12. Removing the innards from a firework is like the soul leaving the body after death :grimreaper:

    Absolutely.. Even in the event of an apocalypse. At least you know there is the possibility you could light it and enjoy it.. as apposed to just looking at it.

    Maybe, but an example in any condition is much better than no example ,.......... once you get in the mindset that you're never going to light the thing anyway........
