Brooklands are normally quite clued up on copyright - who have you been dealing with?

Re: "The Heart Of The Gnat"

Well you guys could always rip the Gnat bits off and have a good basis for a Gnat restoration. And then all you'd need is a Beryl and you could restore K7 to, say, the state she was in on 31/12/1964...

It'll be ZD, XZ is a much older range - mostly Gazelles (which that one is) and Hawks.
