A challenge - 12" shell and heart shells...

08 May 2017 - 07:20 PM

Hey members...


For our company exhibition stand we need some dummy items made would anybody be interested in making the following for us?


1 x 12" dummy shell (complete with label saying 'special golden willow') - must look identical to a Cat 4 modern chinese 12" shell and weigh similar with dummy shell leader and lowering string etc.


3 x 4" dummy shells (complete with label saying 'red heart') - it would be great if one of these could be a cutaway showing the stars laid out in a heart inside?



We will of course cover any costs!


If anybody is interested, let me know your thoughts!

Dropped in to see Phil Cooperman a week or two back and he suggested sticking my head in to say hi......


A lot has changed since my last forum stint!
