Typo, I think -- should be a Ba 65.

Rareplane Breda BA 65

Unless of course the Ba 6 was a different aircraft altogether, in which case, the Ba 65 entry is missing. :)

The family has made the following statement:

We are sorry to have to communicate the sad news that Gordon Stevens, ‘Mr Rareplanes’, passed away on 28th October at the age of 88, after a short illness.

We know that Dad really enjoyed corresponding with all his vacform aircraft modelling friends which kept him in the present and in touch with the modelling world. After years of resisting the internet he eventually took the plunge and over the past 10 years has been quite taken aback to discover so many postings relating to Rareplanes Vacforms, not to mention the many emails of appreciation he has been sent from die-hard enthusiasts like all of you.

We’d be grateful if you could please pass message this on to anyone whom you think would like to know and we would like to thank all of you for your friendship with him over the years which we know he has appreciated very much.

With our warm regards
His wife Janet, daughters Claire & Serena
(the Rareplanes family)

I failed to acknowledge this information came from a post on IPMS/USA Forum by Michael McMurtry "SkyKing" on 7 Nov.

Agreed - very sad news indeed.
