Default HPR-7 Herald BIA plus others

Well it was me that outbid you so apologies for that
Skyline HPR-7 Herald in BIA colors Gatwick early 1970s

Came damaged with front wheel off and bent Main u/c but seem to have sorted it. This releases the almost completed metal kt of the same from Nick Webb just no time to finish it. PM me if interested




2x from ARD sale UAE MRTT and Austrian Caravelle. ARD again into my bad books. forcing the MRTT box into an outer box that was too tight and mashing the box model ok though







Last needed a B767-200 and this inflight Britannia version popped up at reasonable price

Loving the BIA, it was my first ever flight in 1971, even if I was about 12" tall at the time and don't remember it. Must try and find one myself.

I would love to see someone produce a new HP Herald Mould, AEROCLASSICS200 are you listening? I remember viewing these regularly at Manchester Airport in the late 70's and I'm sure they were a little more red than this example. That said I would be happy to own one in this scheme and the final scheme as depicted by the new JCwings 200 MD83 release.

Yes, you did it to me again. Was in the same boat, still trying to finish Herald kit but saw this as a quicker alternative! Apologies for making
you dig further into your deeper pockets with my last minute bid! Sorry to hear you had landing gear issues thought it was only me and my
Western Models afflicted! Looks OK now.

managed to straighten gear problem is wasn't original box and gears smacked the poly bottom part. Give credit to Robert, he did refund a little bit. Lost out on the BOAC Dove that went ballistic...
Have put kit up for sale on ebay and sale section - not sure what thats worth?

Pity the polystyrene wasn't the original packing as have found it gives pretty good protection with old Skylines etc.

Rob is very good and a chip off the old block. Has been helpful with a number of my WM acquisitions from him that
suffered in transit.

I saw the BOAC Dove - big money, little plane!

Nice arrivals. I was also in on the Dove, but not at that price!
