A toast to a departed member
Posted by GMorrison on Sunday, December 31, 2017 6:48 PM

I mentioned this on another thread, but we lost a dear member this year. 

Let's raise a glass to the memory of John Tilley.

There's a large empty space on the ship forum ...  John Tilley, that erudite, generous gentleman,  left a legacy to modelers containing his wisdom and wit. I'll certainly raise my glass to toast his memory.

Usually a search of the web containing "Tilley" and "finescale" and a subject like "Charles W. Morgan" and you'll get links to some pretty good discussions.
