Do not give up Brainstrust those variations you want can still be out there patience is a virtue after searching for years I did find the 23a 1st casting so do not give up just keep looking even I still want some good variations
When I search ebay UK, I see models from the UK and models from outside the UK. When I search foreign ebay sites, I see models appearing on foreign sites with models from the UK that were not featured on UK ebay!
I guess some sellers choose not to advertise their models in their Home ebay sites thinking they can obtain a better price from foreign buyers.
Congrats on a new find!! Proof positive to never give up on the searching -- you just never know when something will show up. I can understand your situation as my "wishlist" for regular wheels variations is also fairly short and mostly pretty hard to find models -- but the search continues..............! Much of the fun around the hobby revolves around "the search" including often meeting new people who also love this hobby. Bill
