Delivered By Mr Gibson (1)
All of this is covered in great detail in Anthony Cross's magnificent book; and we are only in the first chapter which carries the heading "Conception".
In very simple terms; as none of the available machines were completely compliant with the Committees "challenging" list, Mr Gibson decided to design and build one that was.
It is this incredible story of one man's skill and fortitude that forms the bulk of the book; skills which needed on-going development even after the Great Man had retired.
