Heller Classic GB II 2025: C'est Magnifique! ***Now at 38!!!***


Recommended Posts

With the Frog Squad II GB going strong and a Classic Airfix GB on the way, I reckon it could be time for a Heller Classic GB II. What does everyone think?

 

I'm minded to follow the parameters of the last Heller Classic GB, so anything from Heller prior to the Humbrol years would be admissible for this GB.

 

This means any Heller-produced mould originally released prior to 31st December 1985. It doesn't have to be in a Heller box as Heller kits were released by many other manufacturers. Airfix, Buzzco, Encore, KP, Lodela, Revell and SMER are examples. Scalemates is your friend here.

 

Heller also released kits from other manufacturers in their boxes, Airfix for one. These would not be eligible.

 

Who else is up for this?

Did someone say, 'Classic'? It's. yes from me. Two bites at the cherry for a Heller Cessna 337 in 2025 (which is a lot of numbers), better set about finding one.

 

BUT...

I always thought that there was a separate calendar for the classic GBs and they just kept working through the list and didn't have to risk their aged decals in the raucous bunfight?

Ooh, I haven't seen a Heller Cessna 337 in longtemps!

 

As for the Classic GBs, they need hosts so somebody has to propose them to take that responsibility on.

I'd never really thought about how hosting the Classic GBs worked- assumed it was the Usual Suspect!

Realistically it'll be the military boxing as an O2 but I try to be civil🤣

No, it has to be somebody who clearly didn't understand the question volunteered for the task.  Realistically the proposer and a couple of others.

Still haven't seen one of them in an age.

Great to have you on board the Good Plane/Ship/Bus (*delete as appropriate) Heller :)

Hi Mark,

 

Pat, aka @JOCKNEY, is threatening my beret. He can have my soul, but never my beret!

But in order to avoid a Franco-Scottish feud that would last hundreds of years, I will gladly throw my very beret into the ring.

Not sure what I will enter yet.... Decision, decision.
