Anyone have a mint Micron PL7D they could photograph please?

One for Terry Tippett

I'd like to acknowledge Terry's major contribution to R/C history with a section on the S/C & Retro RC website, his kits were bought in their thousands and many remain in use today. As a young teenager I flew with Terry, he was a dedicated Galloping Ghost enthusiast and designed & developed the Gallatrol GG system. We still exchange emails occasionally and he's thrilled to see that we're flying GG again 40+ years on!

The peak of Micron development was the PL-7D, yet on his own website (Norcim) the only photo Terry has of a PL-7D is linked from the Science Museum, a tatty and sorry-looking example. So I'd like to find him a better photo.

Does anyone have a mint PL-7D they would be willing to photograph please?
Preferably an identical setting to the Science Museum photo, well lit against a plain, light background.

Many thanks
Phil
