Not easy with a student budget to buy a GS 1200. As Maurice said, it will be near to impossible (except if you're very lucky) to find this projector at 280 €. If your purpose is to have a 360 mt machine, you may look for a ST 1200, a Fujicascope SH 30 or a Revue Lux Sound 80 Stereo. They are not cheap but sometimes one of thos projectors surfaces at a bargain price.

I have a Revue Lux Sound 80 Stereo and it's a good projector. It's only badged as such, it's made by Chinon and is their SS 1200.
I also have a Fujicascope SH 30, but these would be more expensive than the Revue/Chinon.

Maurice, I paid my Fujicascope €106 two years ago. This is why I meant by "bargain Price" 😁

I still have hope to found this projector. But since, i have enlarged my research to the ST1200 and other able to take biger reel.

I have already met the Revue Lux SS 1200, i paid 20€ for it but i found out the rewinding didn't work and i did not have the courage to fix it. I sell it for the same price without 1 hours. I kind regret it now.

Not yet, i'm looking for it but i haven't found one for less than 50€. The pair of rewinders are in my wishing list.
