Wanted Cardboard unmade model imp from 1963 launch pack.

I threw away one of these when I was 14. Has anyone got a unmade one that I can reproduce, to use at imp events for young ones to colour in and build!

I seem to recall Andrew Webb used to have an unmade one he was seeing about getting reprinted at one time, hes probably still got it as he wasnt one to throw away a kit and he will be at National I would think?

No, I'm not one for throwing kits away, or for missing the National!
I don't know if there was more than one official cardboard Imp but the only one I know of is definately not for kids...it looks very complex. I have a copy (not the original) which is 9 sheets of A3 paper, and the finished model would be around 36cms long! Also no good for colouring since it's already printed in in full colour.
Jeff are you thinking of the very much simplified line drawing model done with the Imp 35 logo? I still have a copy and could print out a few more.

Darn it. Mike Scott gave me an A4 photocopy of one of those years ago. I put it somewhere for safekeeping, but do you think I can remember now where that safe place was. :lol:



Edit: Found it! I think someone in the club has made this up i.e. it's not a factory produced one, but it might do the job. I'll scan it and get it uploaded.
