      Hi Guys one of the modelers in our club , bought a Halk/Glencoe Viscount 700 in 1/96 scale , unfortunatly the kit was missing its undercarriage legs, both main and nose, can anyone help? hopefully in the UK.
      Failing having these parts that they have no use for ,if a modeler has the kit and can send me pictures of the legs ,with a few dimensions, I will attempt to make a set for him.
      Many thanks in anticipation.

      Surely there is ONE member of this group who has this kit ! and can help with a photo/pic/sketch of these undercarriage legs and a couple of dimensions so I can make them ?

      Hi proplineruk, I think at least I have the kit. But I need some time look for it. IŽll send you the information and the photos you need. Send me a pm with your email address and the list what measurements and photos you want.

      Once I had the same problems with some missing parts, but a different model.
      I worte an email to Glencoe and they send me the missing parts without any costs, even to Germany.
      Perhaps it is worth to give it a try.

      Greetings
      Uwe

      I have a spare set of Glencoe Viscount undercarriage legs here in Australia. I will send a PM with more information.
