Roy Scott, (216) a great Gauge One supporter and supplier has died. Roy's company Micromold supplied vacuum formed plastic parts for the model aircraft trade and later coach parts in this material. He then started Tenmille, supplying the moulded sleeper bases with which we are so familiar. Roy was always approachable, chatty and kind to all. We will miss him.
