    Sad to say guys, but long time forum member and a very highly regarded Spitfire researcher, Edgar Brooks, died a couple of days ago:

    Plane Talking - HyperScale's Aircraft Scale Model Discussion Forum:.....

    I'm sure we're all going to miss his knowledge and insight, and remember him as a gentleman.

    Thanks Edgar, for all your hard work and insightful contributions over the years.

    With all here. Farewell, Edgar. Your contribution to the knowledge-base of aviation history, particularly related to Spitfires, was massive. Your generosity was legendary. You are already, and will continue to be, sorely missed.

    You have slipped the surly bonds of earth. May you dance the skies on laughter-silvered wings.
