One of the above pictures was of Sandown? -I was there & still remember the synchro display by the 2 Jo(h)ns. Naturally, I can't remember the year! Think the last Sandown was '98. Blimey.

Hi Stuart

That Sandown picture would have been early 90's, the 'shell suit' jacket dates it I think! I retired the Touche from competition in '90 or 91 and used it at Sandown for 3 or 4 years after, before selling it. Sandown was always my favourite show, I still miss doing it.

Guys,


After a long time the touche moulds are now in our  hands , however they are not mine I'm just mould them .
I have started to put one together but. With flying comps etc , new f3a model to trim things are slow to say the least.


I will be nk on the model soon , and update with pics etc.
Going forward if any one requires a part kit , I would say it is easier to sell the fuzz only and you source the wing and tail cores from steve dunning.saves on postage etc.


Regards
Steve

Was Mitch's Touche the one with the covering iron indent on the canopy?
Lovely days.
