  1. Shackleton spray paint

    Hi Lord Riot Have you tried your local Halfords they can mix the colour that you want I have had satin Gray mixed by them in store all you need to do is quote this BS number BS381c 638 as 300ml cost £15 to mix, the paint is acrylic, but I do recommend you use there plastic primer just in case. and the primer will cost about £7 you will have enough paint left to do a couple of more small to medium models Geoff Arnold World Helicopter Sig IPMS Telford
  2. Are you serious, Hasegawa?

    Hi All Again Just looked at Hannants web page and they are selling the Orion at this time for £69.99
  3. Are you serious, Hasegawa?

    Hi All I have been modelling for longer then most some 50 years and remember in the early seventies Hasegawa kits were competitively priced because the importer AA Hales used to import them (without the box around them) and boxed in the UK by the importer as this was cheaper (they could get more bagged kits in each box) without a lot of wasted space around them for example the Lockheed P3a Orion cost about £9 compared to today's price of £60. I am aware that prices have risen in the intervening years but I do agree the prices of these kits is well OTT and the importer should think about consider doing this again. As the import charges are less for incomplete items.

  8. Unloved Kits.

    I Build helicopters and as for displaying them it take little room on the shelf as have no rotors on them at home. and only at shows do I put the rotors onto them and store them in various sized pizza boxes to keep them safe from damage. Geoff Arnold World Helicopter SIG IPMS

  11. Yet another Shackelton question.

    Hi Richard and all I was a Survival Equipment Fitter from 1969 to 78 and I believe the seat harness were the light brown in colour similar to that used on the Lincolns, in about 1964 when I was a cadet I remember them also on helicopters, later the harness were medium blue webbing, and starting in the mid seventies started to appear using Black webbing.
