Welcome to the forum Mike.
If you have any questions just look for the appropriate section and ask away. Everyone is pretty helpful here.

Hi thanks for that. Nope had to turn round. I was on the way to Mars but came back because the man in the moon reckoned it was a ringer. However I'm on the way back with photos depicting its originality. Mike.
