Really nice orders gentlemen. Still a drama that they come from splitted groups...

Indeed a pity that almost every grouping nowadays is split up. Usually only for more profit by dealers/sellers. But lets not forget relatives as wll who split up such groupings. It shows no respect to their relative imo.

This is the book:

Thanks a lot Thomas. Much appreciated

Here's my most recent addition, a Nevsky from the 1st type suspension variation. The awardee has turned this into a screwback according to the 1943 regulations, using the original components from the suspension. Tons of character here:
