  1. Nice. And owl eyes is an excellent nickname for it
  2. Nice. I like the way they convey a sense of movement
  3. 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...
  4. Thats a good looking convoy
  5. Nice display
  6. 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.
  7. I wonder if they still have that badge? Its probably Google searcher or Internet bookmark manager now
  8. That is a mighty fine collection. Museum worthy
  9. Nice. Thats one of the oldest groups I've seen.
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. Was there any particular reason for all the dollar bills?
  13. Like my old gran used to say - as long as you've got your elf, thats the main thing.
  14. Nice idea. The selenite tower is very cool.
  15. Good complete set. I bet a lot of those dogs and little men got lost over time.
  16. Nice old train station
  17. He looks a bit like Himmler. Maybe its the glasses.
  18. I bet they are looking forward to the exciting changes
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Gosh those are tiny
  22. Nice little group
  23. Looks good with all the patches. What is the unusual looking neckerchief slide?
  24. Thank you truthordare
  25. Cool. I like the wooden spokes
  26. Looks big. Does it have an Oriental Lounge ?
  27. The faces are very well sculpted for such small figures.
  28. Nice detailed engine bay
  29. That signpost is a really nice touch
  30. magnificent display
  31. Nice selection of badges for just $10
  32. Fig. 6. Nice haul.
  33. love the petals on that orange one
  34. Nice model. My Grandfather was a tram driver and would have driven one of those.
  35. Looks nice. Must be a $200+ car if the condition is as good as it seems, from what I have seen before. Looks like those white bits at the end have clips on to carry something. Did it have a hose or a ...
  36. What room would you book if you were staying there?
  37. Did they not make an evil queen figure?
  38. fantastic restoration
  39. great action scenes there
  40. You are so right about the different colours. Ugh - imagine a future classic car show with cars of the 90s and 00s, They would all be different shades of silver or grey. At Least there are a few more ...
  41. We don't have Webolos in UK either. I had the impression it was just a name for the last year of cubs.
  42. Looks great with the trailer
  43. Nice. And well done for getting all those Walmart labels off. I hate it when they leave a sticky residue.
  44. Amazing condition. It looks like it has never been used.
  45. pretty neat. I like the details on the wheels and the white walled tyres
  46. I think I like it with black wheels the most.
  47. I went there during a tour of the western states. It was a very touristy tour. We literally stopped there for 30 mins, got took in to see the urinal then got ushered straight out again. At least I...
  48. Cool. I don't think I would want to drive 107 Mph in that though, especially on the roads they had at the time.
  49. Cinderella has been hopping down the street looking for that all night.
  50. As Cement mixers go, that is quite cute.
