@foxmoth - happy to give @JonnyS first dibs as he asked first, but I'd be interested to have a look at that if he's not interested. Would you do a "sale or return" on the basis of parcel it to me, and I'll either send it back, with the outgoing postage, or some agreed sum less than a new one, but considerably more than nothing?
Alternately, we can pick a day and I'll fly up to Barton in the aeroplane I'd most like to use it in, and maybe borrow it for an hour - but sadly, parcelforce is probably more cost effective. On the other hand, I have done far too little fun flying in recent months and it would be a good excuse.
Can you identify the model from here: http://www.softieparachutes.com/softie-lineup.html
I am Spartacus, and so is my co-pilot.
