Would have love to seen the listings Tigar mentions concerning the t205s and t205 silks!

Very neat letters, fantastic glimpse into the early days of cataloguing the monstrous N172 set.

Default Thanks, Leon... the hobby history is great!

Leon... Thanks VERY much for posting these great letters from one of our hobby's all-time greats to another ATG. (No doubt you may well rank among them as the years roll by.) Also, thanks to Dave H. for the link to the late Mr. Wharton-Tigar's residence. Before seeing Dave's post, I had noted the address with a plan to see what the internet might provide. As much fun as our collectibles provide, these minutes from our hobby's rich past make for a real treat! Thanks again for sharing them with us.

Fascinating insight into how this was done before computers, email and scans. We have it so much easier!

Here are a few more...one was previously shown but fits into the subject matter and I want this to be complete of what there is in the small collection. After all is said and done we will put it over in the archive section.
