Wanted: Mark1 Models Wessex 5's and Harrier GR.3's

#1

Post by bootneck42 »

I am in need of more Wessex 5 (or HC.2) helicopters and Harrier GR.3's from Mark1 Models, for my Atlantic Conveyor build; however, I don't have the funds to get them. I do have plenty of kits to trade, including Mark1 fixed wing and Amodel kits etc., and I could make any trade beneficial to you, if anyone can help. I could do with three Wessex 5's and four GR.3's.
This would likely to be a UK trade, due to costs of shipping and possible taxes etc.

cheers,
Mike

I think Kingkit had a few of these. I know there's a Harrier Gr.3 "Operation : Corporate" kit on there.

Hi JB,

yes, I saw those but they are at the retail prices. I shall have to get them, but one at a time until I've got enough. My Atlantic Conveyor build will probably take that long!

Cheers,

Mike, I've got a couple of Crown Harriers in the stash and could mould some GR 3 noses of that would help? I have a Wessex, not sure which mark, I'll have a looksee. I'm hoping to come up to Weston next week if I can rob a bank for fuel!

Hi David,

no need for that, but thank you. By making a small change in my strategy, I shall have enough Crown and Dragon Harriers for the job. I shall use what kits I have for the uncovered aircraft, modifying noses for the GR.3s accordingly, and will use the card model aircraft for the covered aircraft. The card aircraft would not stand inspection as the uncovered versions; however, with tissue paper and PVA they would pass for the covered ones.
The financial situation, lack of, will only be a temporary setback. We bought our car on one of those PCP contracts and the contract ended last week; therefore, we had to pay out the remaining amount of £7,000 or take out further refinancing. At our age, getting loans etc. is becoming increasingly difficult, plus the rates are high at the moment, so we bit the bullet and paid the car off this week.
I shall buy the remaining Mark1 Models GR.3s and Wessex helicopters as and when I can. By not going to next week's meeting, I will have saved enough in petrol money to get one of the kits, so that's positive already!

cheers,

Mike

Yippee.....

I've just found four of these

and two of these at the back of the stash.

I just need to lop off the HAS.1/HAS.2 type noses and try to cast some HU.5 noses as replacement. So that's the Wessies sorted.
