Don Leath's stuff and stuff for Don

I received the following email from Matt Gewain.   [This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.]

Don Leath is now in a long term care facility.   His wife has asked me to help her raise some funds to help with the cost of Don's care, I will be selling Don's F1A models.  I have at least 6 modern F1A models that Don has purchased recently.  Most of them were never flown.  I also have a bunch of tow reels, tow hooks, extra timers and many other valuable modeling items that Don treasured.  I will be selling them as a silent auction on Saturday Nov 12th at the Patterson contest.  If you are unable to attend this contest and would like to bid on some of Don's models, you can Email me before Nov 10th and I will enter your bid for these items.  At the contest I will close the bidding at 5 PM on Nov 12th and distribute the models to the winning bidders the next morning.

To further help Don you may donate a modelling item that will be sold in the auction.

Good secondhand models like this are often a good  way to get started or have a back up model. On the other modelling items I think I have a few .40 sized engines that date back to evil days when I flew F3D and it various cousins so will look at a semi random selection from that box, probably better/more useful than the 5 pounds of the original Tan rubber I have in the archives.
