Hi All, by looking through the unread posts I make it approx. 7 years since I last visited. I have been a little busy.
There was a chap on here who started selling Little Leafer build packs, I think his name was Steve. I bought one years ago, made a start then left it and have recently gone back to it. The website is still up but I've had no response to any emails, just wondering if any on here from the old days remembers him or knows if he is still around?

Thanks
Paul

Thanks Gray, looks like it's been a while since he's been on here too.
I seem to recall he recovered from Leukemia

Hi Paul,

Like you I haven't been around here for a while but I got a message via Ged and Colin Batchelor. You're right that I had Leukaemia but thankfully I'm fully recovered now.

Sorry I haven't picked up your emails. Little-Leafers is still going, though it's very quiet these days. The web hosting platform I use got transferred a while back and seems to have had problems with emails since, and a hell of a lot of spam!! I've just been onto the server and set up a facility for forwarding so hopefully won't miss emails in the future.

I'll reply to your email through there.

All the best,

Steve

Hi Steve,

Glad you are doing well! I've made a few modifications to your original design to include reverse gear using a quad rear axle which has caused a few headaches and most of the delay!!
I'll put a few pics up for you when I get chance if you are interested.
My boys, now 7 and nearly 4 (I started this when the oldest was 1) are now bugging me to get it completed hence the big push before they are too big to use it!
Somehow during the last few years the drawings got wet and a few of them are illegible so I was hoping to buy another copy of them if possible. The build manual survived tho luckily!

Thanks for everyone's help.
Look forward to speaking soon,
Paul

Thanks Paul, reply sent which should resolve your water damage problem. I look forward to seeing photos.

It's been a while since I developed the plans for Little-Leafers but I am part way through developing a model for the 101 Forward Control which I'm hoping will generate some interest. The plans are done and I need to build a prototype to test the plans when I get round to it.

I'm also planning to build a half scale replica of my own Series 1 tray back at some point, based on the Little-Leafers plans but modified to replicate the 109" wheelbase.



Cheers everyone.

Steve
