Hello, Is there any way to get spare parts for a Heller 1/100 hms victory #80897 kit.

Thanks, Schaye

Hello Schaye-

Use this URL to fill out a parts request.  Hopefully they will help you; I've gotten parts from them before.

Best Regards,

Dave

Hello Dave, Thanks.I've tried many times that URL since December, but still no response from them.Perhaps, some issue because of the pandemic situation around the world.Just a question: When you wrote them for spare parts that was before the pandemic?, any way I will try again.

Hi Schaye,

For what it's worth I tried 3 years ago and when I finally received a response I was told they do not ship replacement parts to the USA, not sure where you live though. Depending on what parts you need you can try Shapeways as they make some replacements, they had the lanterns I needed, hope this helps.

Hi Schaye,  my interaction with Heller was several years ago, probably 2013 or 2014...so it's been awhile.

If I can ask, what parts are you looking for?

Hello Dave, thanks for your answer.Ok.Because the assembly instructions are in French, the description of the parts are:

349 Herpe Tribord

350 Herpe Babord

356 1/2 Guibre Tribord

357 1/2 Guibre Babord

Here is a link for the assembly steps, and in page 11, Montage de la Prove, you can see the graphic parts:

Victory (hismodel.com)

Then in the part that says: Plans to download in PDF, Heller 1:100

Hope this can help, and thanks for your help

well, tribord is starbord, and babord is port.  Not that it helps much.

Hi Schaye-  Those are the beakhead and railing parts.

It's funny, when I got my Victory kit, the head supports were snapped off in the box, so when I reached out to Heller (way back when) those are the same 4 parts I requested.

For whatever reason, I ended up receiving the parts from Heller twice (one set came a week after the first).  So I actually have a spare set of those 4 parts.  Let me know if you want me to ship them to you.

I get the feeling these parts are/were commonly found broken within the box; I wonder if anyone else here has encountered the same issue.

It's too bad Heller is unresponsive these days...In addition to these parts for the Victory, they also sent me replacement upper gunwale parts for my Soleil Royal when I went to build it and found most of the molded-on belaying pins were broken.  I wonder if they're still in business.

Anyway, let me know if you want these head parts.

Thanks,

Dave

That would have been a good time to scratch build belaying pins.
