a selection of die-cast

Postby martay » Sun May 27, 2012 1:20 pm

Here, for your perusal is a selection of the very small die-cast collection i have, im not a big collector of them so forgive the limited number, there are a few more but this is a fair cross-section, couple of nice little gems tucked in here :)

Cheers spud the dub n the mini are original made in england corgi's from them early 80's, thr 2 of my faves too. like yourself i get me kicks building, the dinkys are more of a collector thing, the die cast planes are very rare, there original dinkys from meccanno they are from about 1939 i think, not many of them left. i have more die casts but there the cream of the collectors stuff.I have to admit im a bit of a hoarder lol.Thanks for the look n comments. :)

Ya as far as i know they are, especially the ones without any zinc pest which they are renowned for, and ive 3 in pretty much perfect condition, ive not gotten them valued but from what ive read an undamaged one like the mk 1 b17 are VERY rare, nearly 80yrs old man !

Nice little lot there
The mini and VW are part of a set from the back of the kellogs cornflakes box back in the 80's.
there was also a morris minor and a citreon 2cv in the set.

here's the full set

You had to collect so many tokens for each model.
there was also some buildings printed on the back of the boxes that you could cut out and build but they where way out of scale with the cars.
