Hi Glenn,

I said that I’d come back to you with some suggestions for kits. By far the best range of kits for the first decade of the twentieth century is by Coopercraft, These are ONLY available secondhand, but they were mass produced and pretty much constantly available.

For my own purposes I produced notes of all the kits and the dates from which they were suitable. If the table comes out, this is it:
