  1. Nice one. Happy new year Fort
  2. A peek back into a time long gone.
  3. A super collection. Merry Christmas
  4. If Tony Stark owned a 8mm projector it would probably look like that.
  5. Great to see
  6. What an excellent idea. It really does look like a giant matchbox in the thumbnail
  7. I like the silver ring. It gives it that little something extra and probably helped to protect the rim from chips. P.S. Expectations are high for a big Christmas post from you of vintage Santas an...
  8. My what a big bazooka he has.
  9. Nice. And so true about one thing leads to another
  10. Thats an unusual one. Nice to see something from the Gulf war.
  11. nice set of patches
  12. I had one of these as a kid. Used to wheel it around with me everywhere.
  13. A good one. Although I can't think of anything more disgusting than chewing tobacco.
  14. I like the colours of old Bugs. Yes the big rear windows are later ones but not by a lot. It went from Splitty to oval then big window quite quickly. With the big window being in place by 1958, accord...
  15. The resealable package is a good idea. More should do that.
  16. Think I prefer the non windows top
  17. Looks like an airstream trailer crossed with a VW Campervan crossed with a zeppelin
  18. Oh no. How did Smokey damage your computer? I like the playset. It makes a great backdrop to display them.
  19. Fantastic find
  20. I'm confused how hanging them up is supposed to make them last longer
  21. I wonder if the map reading skills badge has been replaced with an ask Alexa for directions badge yet?
  22. Good ol Goofy. When you post about him I'm always reminded of that scene in Stand by me were they are discussing goofy. "He can't be a dog, he wears a hat and drives a car. Yeah, that is weird. What t...
  23. The blue really stands out in the sunshine. I like the colour
  24. Wow thats great. Looks like lots of fun. My dad made me something similar to the india village part out of paper maché, for my cowboys and indians. One of the many things I wish I had photos of along ...
  25. Nice. And owl eyes is an excellent nickname for it
  26. Nice. I like the way they convey a sense of movement
  27. Wow thats just evoked some distant memory that I had something very similar as a child. I recall my book being shaped like a rabbit, so maybe it was a later edition of the Peter Rabbit book. Very nic...
  28. Thats a good looking convoy
  29. Nice display
  30. Nice design. It would be a nice house to live in. The fact there are no sloping roof tile pieces and the monochrome colour pallet makes me think late 50s to early 60s.
  31. I wonder if they still have that badge? Its probably Google searcher or Internet bookmark manager now
  32. That is a mighty fine collection. Museum worthy
  33. Nice. Thats one of the oldest groups I've seen.
  34. I was thinking 20s or 30s. It says tea supplier to King George V on the front, which would put it 1910 to 1936. Also, King and queen of Italy. Italy didn't have a royal family after the war which al...
  35. Thanks for looking dav2no1. Celiene, thats great research, thanks. I looked at the link for the patent. I notice the trademark became registered in 1971. Companies usually put a little R or TM next...
  36. Was there any particular reason for all the dollar bills?
  37. Like my old gran used to say - as long as you've got your elf, thats the main thing.
  38. Nice idea. The selenite tower is very cool.
  39. Good complete set. I bet a lot of those dogs and little men got lost over time.
  40. Nice old train station
  41. He looks a bit like Himmler. Maybe its the glasses.
  42. I bet they are looking forward to the exciting changes
  43. Nice. Just for info, Aston Martin will be back in Formula 1 next year, for the first time since your car took part. I wonder if it will be green again.
  44. I've never known a tea or coffee set to be made with 5 cups so most likely it started life with 6 but one was broken.
  45. Gosh those are tiny
  46. Nice little group
  47. Looks good with all the patches. What is the unusual looking neckerchief slide?
  48. Thank you truthordare
  49. Cool. I like the wooden spokes
  50. Looks big. Does it have an Oriental Lounge ?
  51. See more
