By heck, it's going to be a long ride on my own!
Graham,When I use to build Airfix model kits of aircraft, they use to come with the same kind of single strut support to display them as you can see in your picture at the museum. Did Airfix copy the museum or did the museum copy Airfix.....mmmm. All the best Don
Good question, but I expect it took more than one of those tiny tubes of glue to fix it on though!
