      I am looking for the captioned kit to complete my Heller 1/125 scale airliner collection. If anyone has one to sell please let me know.

      Thanks

      I have the artwork for all the Air Inter liveries. PM me if interested.

      Check out ebay.fr (France)! I just did, a lot of Heller 1/125 kits available but no Mercure at the moment. If the seller only ships within Europe or even worse only within France the auction will not show outside that area. Then a personal contact might help. Good Luck!

      Linjeflyg(SE) CV440 Metropolitan and AeBal B717 would be very nice!

      I have a permanent search set up for Ebay looking for this kit. No luck for a long, long time.

      This kit will not be built but merely stashed with the other Heller 1/125 scale airliners in addition to their Caravelle in 1/100.

      Thanks for the input.

      For what it is worth, I am just finishing one and it is a very nice kit although the engine inlets can use a bit of “modernization.” I used brass tubing and the fan discs from the Contrails Super 27 set which worked fairly well for me. Keep looking...one will surface. It is worth the wait!

      Cheers,

      I saw that one on ebay (from Toronto I think). So glad you got it! I bought one on ebay a while ago (advertised as complete) but turns out it was missing the engine parts! So if you decide you can spare an engine, let me know. :-)

      I have the 3D files for the F-RSIN Mercure. I can scale the engines up from 1/144 to 1/125 and send you the files (free of any charge) so that you can get them printed from a company like Shapeways.
