Stearns at Hinchliffe

From Mil Mod February 1973 the legendary Phil Stearns (the OSS, Penthouse and Mil Mod - beat that for a CV) pays a visit to Hinchliffe Models.




For a little more on Stearns see Shep Paine's tribute.

What a great article Doug. Fantastic to see so many wonderful old photographs of an iconic company and the personalties who helped forge what we have today. Excellent post mate.

30 to 40 Thousand figures a week!
People must be hoarding them, as I can just buy them used in handfuls!

Great article DC A very flash looking Peter G one suspects an MG in the carpark. That is an extremely large output I shudder to think how many may have ended up disappearing in spring cleans and estate clean-ups, as you say they are hard to get for that volume of production.

I was rather taken with the 10" howitzer, a very early mark indeed. ;-)

Doug,

You can buy many/most of the Hinchcliffe ranges from Ian Hinds (http://www.hindsfiguresltd.com/Figures-For-Sale.html). Very cheaply I might add :)
