Hinchliffe Models promotional film from circa 1975...


Posted by Airtek on YouTube, this is a fantastic snapshot of an earlier era. I did visit the Hinchliffe shop at some point in the 80's and regret not picking up a TSR John Carter of Mars ruleset that was hidden away under a table. A great chance to see some of the old legends of the hobby including the sculptor Peter Gilder...

An excellent video, thank you for a fantastic historical modelling adventure.
Wow just nostalgia at its best, I now need a time machine to go back for a visit
to the shop.

Cheers, stay safe and happy gaming,

A nice piece of wargaming history. I can just feel that Northern sleet in the opening shots.. Cheers Greg (Delta Coy Blog)
