Sorry to hear that. Cyril was one of the great pioneers of 4mm modelling. I
knew him well back in the 50's when he was just getting the 'Modeller'
going. He encouraged me to produce rolling stock drawings and published
them. The money came in handy as I was in impecunious student at the time.
He was also indirectly responsible for the rise and rise of P4 by
challenging the North London Group to produce an exhibitable layout. The
rest is history as they say. I was there and it was no easy feat.
CJF (and RM) were the formative influences when I took up the hobby in
High School, early 1960's. Even though my interests and abilities have
changed since then I still regard him as one of the 5 greats of the
Hobby. John Ahern and David Jenkinson were the other two Brits.
