Great read Doug, the original periscope is in existance , a bit batterede and held together by tape - and it still has the same effect with people!

Blimey, I remember reading this! I also remember Peter Gilder and Frank Hinchliffe giving a talk about their new company to the Manchester Area Wargames Society and discussing the (then) revolutionary shading technique. Time for my Horlicks, I feel old . . .

I remember reading it as well in 1980.

After reading it I went there for the first year and every year until 1989.

There was a pull out in the magazine as well.

I have that I believe in my parents house, I remember seeing it a few years ago.

Next time I visit there I will look for it.
