Display Unit

This dates to 1968 - it is a bit damaged and too fragile to mount on the wall - I tried it and it started to crack under its own weight!

But It think it is a nice display piece, even though it has to just lean against the wall in my collecting room!

It was pricey but I think it was worth it :D :D

Enjoy!

Kurt

Thanks for the comments

I don't think my collection has any direction !

Yesterday I received the following non matchbox job lot

(a) TAT plastic Bentley Continental - a bonus as I only really wanted the other item

(b) Triang Triumph Herald - this is incomplete but is a delectable and very accurate model

Tonight I decided to look for other models of the Triump Herald and found some Vanguards resin pre-production models for sale - I am trying to resist but its so very very difficult not to indulge !!!

Happy hunting and giving in to temptation

I would like to see your recent plastic models, especially the Bentley, but we currently don't have a general plastics section.

Do members want a section dedicated to plastic models such as those friction powered toys from Hong Kong.

I have posted a photo of the Bentley and Herald in the Picture Gallery /Our Collections section as they have little to do with regular wheels so I thought this was more appropriate! :D :D

Enjoy
