Welcome to our forum. Happy to have you on board.

 

Can you tell me which photo you are referring to? Thanks.

 

Doug has been quite ill as of late, but will send you a private PM with his email address. He's a great source of information.

I'm afraid the images I have aren't very large (just took a peek). I'm sure you would have to contact Doug to get bigger images. But in the interim you can click on and download from that page okay?
