"Doug McHard - Somerville Models". Passionate, self-taught model-maker whose planes and cars were among the most perfect copies ever made! Founded in 1978, first Saab-models were made in 1981 after signing a great contract with Saab. There would be so much to write about the "best Saab-models ever made", sadly I don't have the space. But there is a wonderful article from "The Sunday Times" written a few weeks after his sad, all of a sudden death, at the 29th of August 2002 (www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/obituaries/article1169221.ece). In 1998 I had the great luck to visit Doug McHard and his wife at their home in Billinghay, Lincolnshire. It was really one of the best days during my more than 30 years with Saab. So what was going on after his death? Everything was sold to a new owner in England, "Promod Ltd". They always promised to go on with all those wonderful models, but nothing happened - until 2011! Ten different Somerville kits are new available! But still no Saab, so let us hope for the future!Model-Info
