Chapter 64 – Pictures 01 to 04

Shown here in Pic 01 is the cover for the National Model Galley (NMG) proposal I created, which was inspired by the huge success of 3SF 3D, in the hopes of providing South Yorkshire with a viable national tourist attraction.

Sadly despite my best efforts the idea never got off the ground.  Anyone out there interested???????

Chapter 68 – Picture 01

Just one of the hundreds of space mission and space programme patches I have collected over the years.

The data cards, and the patches attached to them, now fill many, many binders within my home in the UK.

For reference I have also branched out and started collecting patches from both science fiction and science fantasy movies and TV series as well.
