Hey Al,
That is a nice set of replacement heads, they should be useful.
IIRC, Hornet used to have several mixed sets that included a head wearing a webbing covered para-helmet.
After looking at the Hornet website, these sets no longer appear to be available.
Cheers

Hi John,

Yip, when I went looking for heads for the MB Paras I naturally looked at Hornet but they only had rimless helmet guys, nice heads but none with camo. Resicast do 2 sets, both have a mix of camo, netted and plain helmets. I picked up the sets at Duxford, very good quality.

Hi Rudi,

If only!! They simply have the largest range of British Items around, who else makes 2inch mortars, Vickers MGs, compo boxes and all the rest. Mind you I use a lot of Accurate Armour Items too, again because no one else makes them lol, lol.

Cheers

Hi Simon,

Yes, the Infantry are grand figures too. I have some that need a change of uniform colour, but like the Paras they are very detailed.
