One of my other hobbies is woodwork, especially small projects, and over the years I've built up nearly a full collection of Hobbies Weekly design sheets from the 1930s to late 50s when they ceased publication.

(apologies, but I can't seem to get it the right way up) - anyway, it makes up a model representative of the Tower of London on a base of 2foot 3inches by 1foot 6inches, with the tower as a seperate, lift out, unit. The dowload printed out at A4 size, so it's a case of maths and a visit to the copy shop. A summer project for those long light evenings.
