Very nice, John.
It's good to see that you're not just sitting around on your arse, now that AWF isn't taking up all your time.

Amazing. How on earth do you not go cross-eyed?!

Looking forward to buying a copy and contributing to Bryan's flying boat paradise. :D

Very regretfully, I havn't heard from John for over a year now, despite trying all the contacts I have to get hold of him. He simply dissapeared from view - his own personal forum - a real brilliant one at that, also went overnight.

Both Dogsbody and I have beeen contacting him, and I know Chris has had limited success. The Singapore profile sits on my pc just needing a couple of minor revisions (to text, not the artwork) and when done, it would be a masterpiece. I can't do that for him, I'm afraid.

So, John, if you are reading this please, please get in-touch. We would all love to see it finished, and I personally would love to hear from you again......
Best Regards,

Bryan,, my wife recently forced me into the 21st century and made me open a Facebook account. John and I have " friended each other. We have had a few messages to each other and I know that he is still doing aircraft profiles. If you are on facebook, you could check him out. If not, I could ask him about the Singapore profile for you.

Chris,

That's excellent news! I have a Facebook account but have never used it as I always had a hard time explaining why all these females want to be my friend.........

Can you ask him for me please?

Chris, thanks a lot.

I must admit that after the last (ever) email from John I was perplexed, as you know. I really look forward to hearing from him, I used to phone him and we had some really great conversations........

Be nice to catch up............

I know what you mean. It's a curse that I've learned to live with.
