    Many of you will have used these excellent plans over the years, particularly for British subs.

    Well John died in January and we have been asked to contact his daughter, Julia to encourage her to maintain the archive etc.

    I have just written to her on our behalf:


    Hi Julia,

    I was saddened to hear of your Father's death.

    He will be missed not least by the modelling fraternity. His submarine plans for British submarines are particularly important.

    If you do wish to continue to offer his plans to modellers, we would be very pleased to help with publicity etc. (We are member funded and we are free.)

    The perfect inquiry letter, David: respectful, to the point, and clear. Hope this important resource will continue to live.

    Our numbers are dwindling by the day.

    Thank you, David. It got the following very nice (and hopeful) reply:


    Good morning David,


    Thank you for your message.


    Michelle and I are intending to log all Dad's drawings (a formidable task!) We hope to finish by the end of the year and will then know what drawings we have.


    Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help with anything.


    Julia

    Some potentially good news in the May 2019 issue of "Model Boats" magazine.

    It seems that Seaforth publishing:

    https://www.seaforthpublishing.com/

    Have taken over the rights to publish John's work.

    The first book on Destroyer Weapons is available soon.
