Hi all,

Does anybody know where I can get hold of the Ken Swan Bridget drawings? Reeves seem to sell everything but the drawings, which is strange.

Regards

Callum

It was a bit odd from the beginning. One can build the complete chassis from the articles in ME (May 1970 - March 1972) but there the series unceremoniously ended without explanation. Rumour had it that there was a disagreement over publication rights. There may still be a disagreement over publication rights and Ken has elected to be the sole source for drawings.  I have virtually all the drawings beyond what were published in ME and these were acquired driectly from Ken in Rowlnads Gill. At that time I believe he was still offering castings direct. That was in 1999 and I don't know if Ken is still living.

The BT online directory search still has Ken at that address. (It also gives his phone number)

I believe Ken (Swan) died around three years ago, the drawings for Bridget are available from Polly Models, the castings from Reeves.

Careful br, I think that ebay ad is for the GA only, not the full set.
