I do have (the old) one but it is a bit of a wreck as I built it when I was young, dumb and didn't know what PSR was. The landing gear is probably one wheel in the grave too. I did it as a 16Sqn Saints display bird in all-over black. I don't know if I want to part with it yet but if I do, you have 1st dibs if that means anything?

Sounds fair enough.  Landing gear wouldn't be a problem and I enjoy bringing wrecks back to life:



This is 'Fab Five Freddy', part of him was the first Heller Spitfire 16 I ever did, with various other bits and bobs from the spares box.

Hi Chris, I do have a 1/72 one but we have plans for it mwuhaha! Ahem.

Lee, the likes of Freddy is why I don't post any of my "completed" builds. I have a Heller 16 somewhere and it don't look like that!  :thumbsup:

Bugger, what is the airliner, the one with the loose engines, i am thinking of  attacking that and scaleramaing it in to something  in 1/72nd scale  and with a different  cockpit  on it. Is there landing gear etc with it also?

No, no landing gear on that one. I tend to build my birds gear up and frankly, discard the gear. A life choice for which I have been repeatedly lectured on by pretty much the entire population of ebay.

You wouldn't believe it but sometimes the landing gear retracts!  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Apologies but I have no great love and more than a few choice words for the bringers of unsolicited critiques!

Aaaahhheeerrrrr....If I recall correctly, engines lobbed off & various bits cast to the six & a half winds but gatherable. NC-123 components snaffled for another project. Can't guarantee anything like complete - hence the spares notation.

Well, if you happen to have any turboprop engines to spare, that's been a planned project of mine, lol!

I might have a couple of T56s (or 501s if you prefer) off of an Electra.
