It's all new!
For the second time in its history, this site has undergone a major redesign.

Apart from choosing a new design which is a little easier on the eye, I have added some more graphics for the interface, hopefully to make navigation a little easier, and to spead the pages out for the more usual 1024x768 minimum page resolution. For the technical visitors amongst you, the site has also been brought up to W3 xml transitional compatibility, so that it can be a little more future proof, hopefully giving it a greater longevity.

I have also taken the opportunity of making use of all the feedback I have had over the years, to correct some typos, some errors, and to make some adjustments based on alternative opinions - so thank you for all the people who have written to point out various minor problems.

I have revised the museums pages, so these ought to be more up to date. I have tried to take account of airframe and exhibit movements and of course new pictures, which have kindly been sent to me, to give us a better view of some of the Walter Motors. I have also revised some of the text, based on additional researches. With this new basis, I will now try and add in further pages, expanding on some of the areas of research which have taken my eye over the intervening period.
