Sounds good to me TOPDAD, I'll meet you at the pub down the corner.

Here's one for you muskrat, a pic taken outside the BSA factory.  A pic of the BSA testers in the 50's. One of the fellows in the photo is alive and well and lives in Melbourne.

That would have to be up there Marcus.I think someone else here has one. Sort of remember it being spoken about one or two years back.

Regarding relaunching BSA, we'll need a Sunbeam dept. & I'll take Erling Poppe's job, of course.

Hi Markus,
I dont suppose you fancy getting a batch of those Rocket mascots cast using yours as a pattern ????
I have tried bidding on a couple of them on Fleabay *sad2*

Hi John!
Basically, why not, but I dunno whether there is enough interest to make it worthwile? Not in the sense of making a huge profit, but at least covering expenses.
IIRC Trev(inoz) has mentioned a friend who had them cast, maybe worth a try?

I would certainly be interested in one Markus if you ever decide to run some off. BTW, were they only fitted to export models? The reason I ask is that unless they were original fitments to the UK market there may be a problem with the annual test here regarding pedestrian safety, although the original "pedestrian slicer" front numberplates are still permitted, although not necessary by law.

The railway workshops in Newcastle were responsible for a large number of these appearing on a lot of "sudeo-rockets"
We actually had a member who made up a "suedo-rocket" decal for his rocket styled A10

And no you had it correct the first time.
Trev in OZ comes from near the afore mentioned railway ex-workshop.
I am a bit further down in Sinny and Musky is still further south

 I do come from the area of the mentioned workshops and in fact spent my apprenticeship working in them.
BUT, I never saw any Rocket castings made in my time. They were large shops so anything could have happened in the "Foreign Order" department.
The castings that my friend made some time ago were done at the Tech College in the metal casting school.
This was a hobby course which the Government, in their wisdom, has shut down so that avenue is now closed.

I have a mate (bike rider) down here with an alloy foundry. If I could BORROW a sample to see how much it would cost.

Musky,
                I've got a couple of them but they are still unfinished, still rough cast from the sand mould so I suppose that they wouldn't be suitable.

G'day Trev,
               the time you were typing I was running into the back of a tintop. Just home from hospital (5days).
A rough sand cast should work, my mate has a way of wiggeling the pattern in the mould to allow for shrinkage.
Cheers
