Toyfair (RIP)

A warm evening up at the village at what turned out to be the last toyfair to be held there. Both buyers and sellers have been noticeably absent at recent events, and really it was not a surprise when (organiser) Joe announced the closure.

Only purchase was an Atlas Editions repro-Dinky Mini Countryman with a quite good repro box. Not much money.

It’s a pretty little model but doesn’t look quite right as the rear side-window is one piece of perspex, whereas, in the full size car there was a sliding rear window which gave the impression of a ‘c-post’ above the rear wheel-arch.
