Those of you who know of the work of Tom Harland and his masterpiece 'Bramblewick' (NER 4mm), may not know that Tom died this morning (20th February) after fighting cancer for some time.
Tom was a great inspiration to many modellers, me included, especially with regard to the finish of Victoria's stonework. Anyone who saw Bramblewick in MRJ or on the circuit, will remember Tom's artistry in creating all that stonework, and of course his 'day job' as a professional artist always shone through. More than that, he was a gentleman, always willing to help.
Thank you Tom.
I never met Tom's family, but I wish them all the best at this sad time.
