Model by Italian manufacturer Politoys in their ‘Penny’ series. Lotus 43-BRM. The original was driven in only five races in 1966-1967 finishing only one of them, the 1966 American GP, which it won in the hands of Jim Clark.
This is about 1:60 scale and via eBay for virtually no money.
A couple of bits of 3-rail track and another pair of buffers, another TPO coach and a Corgi bus. Not too terrible a haul and not much money.
In the meantime, the collection of first issue matchbox toys continues with No. 6a Quarry Truck (production 1956-1958), scale probably 1:100 or smaller. This one came with a repro box but was very reasonably priced. Box could be better though.
Missed several toyfair events this year (again!). So pleased to get to one recently.
Not the best-ever event but added a couple of bits of track and the parcels van from the Royal Mail accessory set. When complete this had a trackside ‘trigger’ which enabled sacks of mail to be deposited and removed from the car, via the chutes towards the rear, whilst the train was in motion.
Had this tinplate friction drive tank lurking in the bottom of a box for decades. Dibro brand, which is short for Dickinson Brothers a company based in Liverpool, UK which was active in many manufacturing sectors in the 20th century.
Some years ago, I sold my early Tri-ang (pre Hornby merger) OO scale Pullman cars. So when I found one in a ‘bargain bin’ at a recent toyfair I found it hard to resist, especially as it was less money than I sold my one for. Now though, I need to find replacements for some of the other Pullman coaches.
