Heroics & Ros 1/300 Sci Fi range

I remember seeing this range advertised many moons ago and I finally got a sample pack off them at Salute a few years back so decided to pick up the range. The company was bought out around 10 years ago and keeps going from strength to strength. I fondly remember perusing old Military Modelling magazines desperately wanting to see what all the military models looked like... listings being the sign of those times of course... we weren't spoiled like today with the veritable plethora of high quality images of every miniature we want... H&R still have some way to go with their website but it's a lot better than it used to be. The Sci Fi range isn't listed and the 12 code titles are lost to time... unless you know differently? They were talking of putting them on the website... let them know if you want that to happen! Mark Hides over at Conflict in Colour does a lot of their painting for them... it would be great to see these done by him.













There's another H&R post here about their old ancient 25mm plastics...

Miniature Figurines late 60's or early 70's catalogue...

Amazing the things you forget about. I was sorting out some space for the washing machine to be stored whilst the kitchen floor is laid... suddenly I could open a cupboard that has been covered for some time... mostly full of old Minerva (archaeology) and Wargames Illustrated magazines there was, however, a pile of children's keepsakes in a pile under which I discovered this little piece of joy. I have vague memories of getting it in the last couple of decades but not many... Not sure of the year so it would be interesting to find out. They moved from this address in 1972 and were incorporated  (becoming a limited company) in 1968 so any year between these? Hope the pics are ok (the rear was blank so I've left it off)... with the way the house is at the moment I can barely find room to move... 

Lots more Miniature Figurines / Minifigs posts here and background information on the company on the Minifigs site here.

Happy New Year to you all by the way, hope the winds of chance blow beneficially in your direction.
