My sincerest apologies to David Dukes. I received an e-mail from him last night which he sent several days ago, explaining that his phone was broken and he was unable to contact us. Also, due to the postal strikes, the money I’d sent to finance the props had not arrived, meaning he didn’t have the working capital to complete everything. Thanks to Scott Lamplugh for his e-mail defending David. My intention has never been to disrepect David’s work and certainly his level of commitment and dedication (and resultant lack of sleep) cannot be denied. David, if you’re reading this please get in touch as the pictures you sent of Luca’s weapons look fantastic and we’re all looking forward to using them.
Apologies also to James, who it seems is not dropping out after all. No, I don’t understand either, but I’m sure all will be explained in the fullness of time.
