Hinchcliffe Napoleonics- anyone interested?

Post by Spanner »

A mate has a lunch-box-sized box of Hinchcliffe Napoleonics (mainly British) that are surplus to requirements, and he asked me if I knew of anyone who may be interested. Most of them are in the old Hinchcliffe blue boxes, so he's been dragging them around, from posting to posting, for decades.

Anyway, is there likely to be anyone (anywhere, not just LAW members) who may be interested in these? Or should he consign them to the local landfill?

Cheers.

Donald's your man. He's always saying that his lead pile isn't big enough.

On a similar theme, Tim, I think I have a load of Austrians somewhere that you are welcome to - anything to avoid them lying around unloved/unwanted.

Oh yes please. I did have Hinchliffe Russians but passed them on to a keen young kid at a show. Regreted it since as I'm keen on the old school stuff now.

NSW south coast Tim. Postage is probably going to be a problem (69 Oz pesos/35 quid for 2kg- are idiot governments trying to stop people buying small amounts of goods?), unless Bill can find someone on their way over (still considering that meself). I'll email Bill and ask him to come up with a list of what he's got, mate. The few figures he showed me- the Hinchcliffe boxes were taped up- were British infantry in stovepipe shakos. I'll ask him if I can give you his email and you can discuss it with him.

A little tall to mix with Airfix, HäT and Zvezda, I would have thought? :evilgrin:

I don't think that really matters. The thrill for Donald is the 'owning', he doesn't worry about the lead pile.
