My name is Santiago Hrubisko and I live in Argentine. My father and I have an interesting collection of British WWII aircraft.
A couple of years ago we represent the Hawker Hurricane in a series of 109 models in 1/72 scale.

I have seen your post about the Henley showing a Hurricane used as Target tug aircraft. KEH (9115?) is the serial correct?.
I would like to add this model to our series. Could I ask you some question about it?.
It would be an honor to be in contact with you. My personal email address is firstname.lastname@example.org

Thought as much! But couldn't think why your request re-appeared.
Ah, well - back to the day's business!
thanks for the message, you did indeed reply, and we exhanged a few interesting e-mails a while back! Thanks again.
Hello My Dear Chap,
Please forgive my intrusion. I have noticed from your postings that you are a former RAF pilot of the war years. That is fairly well brilliant enough!
However, two recent posts of yours really set my eyebrows in an upwards direction. In one, you posted a photo with signature of Mikhail Gromov!! I wonder to myself, "how on earth did this bloke get such an item!?"
Then, I just looked at another thread where you have listed the aircraft which you have flown. On this sheet there is written on the left collumn, in Russian, "trainer" (Uchebniy, or учебний). Thus, I wonder, "how on earth did you know to spell that"? Indeed, I also wonder what aircraft was this trainer, assuming that you flew it?
May I be so bold to ask if you might have been with 151 Wing in Murmansk? If not, what was your connection to the USSR in the war years which allowed for these two extraordinary items to be possible?
Please forgive my curiosity, but you see my name is Erik Pilawskii, Soviet VVS historian. [you may see my website if you like http://vvs.hobbyvista.com/ ] Your items have really quite piqued my interest. And I wonder what other fascinating things you have to offer?
Yours in History, and with my greatest respect. Erik
