    Hi Johny

    She was destined to rescued by you

    I'm sure Warwick @ the Museum and the people at Griffon will be happy to help where they can.

    I wish you all the best with her restoration - and do let us know how you get on.

    Cool Re: Skima 12

    I have removed the thrust Duct and propeller nearly ready to removre the Engine.
    I understand that Salvage squad had restored one of these for the HC museum.
    Can any one send me a copy of the episode where they restored the Skima 12.
    I do not seem to be able to buy a copy anywhere.
    regards John
