Preserving Edgar Brooks' Spitfire information

My name is Jon Bius. I am a modeler from North Carolina, USA. As with many Spitfire enthusiasts, I encountered Edgar Brooks, and quite enjoyed exchanging the occasional email with him, and talking on forums.

It was with great sadness that I read of his passing. 

At some point, I had started collecting our exchanges in a single document for my own personal reference, and when I found his input on forums, I'd copy that down also. Eventually, I thought it might be a good idea to ask Edgar if he'd be open to editing and perhaps expanding the document, and sharing it with others.

I had an email in my Drafts folder to that effect when I found he'd passed away.

Realizing that other modelers may have additional emails and references from Edgar, I thought perhaps if I posted the few pages I had collected, and invited input from others, it might be developed into a useful set of notes.

I have created a page on my blog at for this purpose. I invite input from the modeling community to expand the document. It is freely available at the link provided above. Full details on contributing are there also.

This will not be a commercial venture in any way. I simply hope it is a fitting tribute to my friend who loved Spitfires, and I hope to be able to share that love with other modelers.

I ask for any information you may have to be added to the document, if anyone would like to participate.

Thank you for your consideration.
