Like, I suspect, many other Gnatterboxers I only knew Andy through the group in here, but that was from when he joined in 2003. He had great fun experimenting with a lot of modelling ideas and from his comments enjoyed a wide range of other interests beyond our virtual walls.

My condolences to Sue and all Andy's friends and relations.

Kind regards,

I’m sorry to hear this. I always enjoyed the stories Andy wove about his layouts. And his modelling on gnatterbox has been an inspiration for me, particularly Cuddle. My sympathies to you, Sue. Andy mentioned you several times in his posts, usually along the lines of ‘Sue has gone out for the morning so I can make a mess on the kitchen table”.

What a loss, Andy was such a great contributor to this forum, We had a great rapport over the issues of Bertrand at Macton and the goings on on cuddle, I smiled at Peter's comment about Sue going out and so he could make a mess in the kitchen. My deepest condolences to Sue and the Family. One of My favourite bits of Andy's creative talent was the crate of Tequila called Mockingbird. R.I.P.Sir!
