The cheapo Halfords Dot 4 stuff is fine.
Great at removing enamel paint etc.

Re: Earliest Vintage SW Memories

Love these nostalgia threads. One of my earliest memories is going to the local mini-market and seeing the Waddingtons SW puzzles on the shelf. That and collecting the Topps cards (I can still smell that sickly bubblegum). Buying Star Wars Weekly comic was also a big early memory. I can still rememb...

Best of luck with this. Hope it takes off.
Can't make it this time, but well up for the next one.

Nice to see us country bumpkins get a bit of attention for a change :D

SW Binary Sunset - Just encapsulates my love for the saga in one scene. Mos Eisley/Cantina - The otherwordly atmosphere enthralled me as kid. Still does.
