Default To all COLLECTORS AIRCRAFT MODELS CAM veterans

Not for you newbies.. just us old timers who loved to visit CAM at the Heathrow Sheraton on Bath Rd and dump hundreds if not thousands…another comical read by our good friend Nigel Tompkins owner and his ego!

I never realised CAM in the Sheraton was still going as late as 1999.

The good ole days!! They were VHF Supplies before CAM, at Noble Corner, Great West Road.

I remember that place too!!

Brian ran that place, and young Nigel worked for him, as did Paul Burge (ARD). My first visit there was in the mid 1970s

I lived in Hanworth and went to school in Isleworth until 1972, so were always popping in here and the Aviation Hobby Shop in Uxbridge when cycling at the airport. Happy days.

The place where I bought my first models ....
It was in 1996, CAM was still at the Sheraton in 2001.
