Lift Here
« on: May 17, 2013, 12:10:15 pm »
... and no, it's not an instruction, it's the somewhat bizarre name of a company in Serbia who make decals apparently.

But I also found out last night that they do a delightful 1/72 scale resin kit of the Short Sealand, a small twin engined 1950s period amphibian and the last 'flying bout' ever made by Shorts. The secratary of my model club had one but can't remember where he got it  :banghead: or even when.

So does anyone know who stocks Lift Here stuff please? Big H don't even mention their decals.

Aviation Megastore stock them, but IPMS Serbia had them at SMW and Cosford but they quickly sold out

Would have sold out even quicker if you'd succeeded in your dastardly plan and got me to buy one  :wacko:

..... and no, that's not an instruction, it's the somewhart bizarre name of a Serbian decal manufacturer, but I found out last night that they also do a delightful 1/72 scale resin kit of the Short Sealand.

The Sealand was a twin piston engined 1950s era amphibian that was Short's last 'flying boat' but they only made 25 of them or so. I can remember being boggled by one at Farnborough as I'd never considered that they made aeroplanes that could operate from water AND land.  ;D


Just ordered one from Aviation Megastore.

Out of interest, there was an article about the Sealand in a recent Air-Britain magazine (Archive I think, I'll have to find the mag' again), apparently there's a couple still in existence --- in museums

Indeed, one of them is in Serbia/Yugoslavia I understand, so they have no excuse for getting the model wrong!  ;D

I wish I knew where they got their company name from though, it's truly mad.  :lol: :rolleyes:

I bit the bullet and bought one, even though it cost 46.00...... (GULP!)  :o

It seems only the Luchtvaart Hobby Shop actually has them in stock, and then only the re-popped one. They only have ONE of the originals left, it looks to be very popular which is suprising. Mine is destined either to be the prototype G-AKLO, in that wonderful green and white scheme that I saw it in at Farnborough, or just may be impressed into the RAF.......  ;)

Off the wall suggestion:-  "LIFT HERE"  was the text on the first transfer/decal they produced, perhaps?

Or their first production facility was an old shipping container with big "Lift Here" stencils all over it.

Um... WTH (What The Heck) is this?  Okay, so I get the Buchon as a subject.  I understand how the Spanish built Merlin engined Me-109s were repainted to stand-in as Hurricanes for filming some aerial movies.  I get that.  I also understand the Germans pulled an engine swap on a captured Spit to create a "MesserSpit" thing.  


But what is this?  Aside from pure Whiffery?
