Hi, Anyone know where I can get my hands on some small shackles and may be a few spreader bars here in the UK.
Cheers

Hi John Do you mean proper certified lifting shackles and beams or just mini D shackles as used on wire rope for hand rails and decorative/asephetic use. If for lifting what size and capacity ?

Hi John its ok partially me not noticing the Models directory listing in the header :doh: I saw shackles and mini thought are they for lifting or not.

Its amazing what bits people do make for modeling accessories.

Thank you John, but i cannot take the credit for these, they were cast by me but the masters and the paint work was done by Luke Martin, who has assisted me for the last 3 years ..
