This is really very sad news.
I knew Roddy through both ML and Archer, and during the past 10-15 years, we discussed
lots of subjects, mainly ofcourse German armour, since I was (still am) a mere novice on the subject,
while Roddy proved to be a great source for a variety of German AFV's, mainly the big cats.
I considered Roddy to be a real good chum, and a splendid source for information.
As Manus did already mention, Roddy was a splendid researcher which resulted in excellent sets for
Archer (both AFV's and uniforms), and his books on the Panther tank, a must for everyone interested
in the subject.
Besides that, he was also a very talented modeller, and many of us will recall his posts on CC forum.
My deepest condolences to Roddy's wife, Marie Anne, and the children.
NB I found a few nice shots of Roddy's work on my pc, showing his great eye for detail and talent for
