<p>Buying this perspex display cabinet off a fellow collector, I thought it would be nice to show it filled with a few of my Regular Wheels.</p>
<p>
</p>
<p>So I had to dig out the crate with the MBs.</p>
<p>
</p>
<p>Spread out on the table</p>
<p>
</p>
<p>
</p>
<p>And the filled cabinet</p>
<p>

Excellent score from a fellow collector. Nice to see them back out in the air again after being boxed up for ... How Long?

At least 4 or 5 years Jim. These Regular Wheels are so nice. Especially the early ones

The Cortina on the third shelf and the Zephyr on the bottom shelf need to be with their family on the top shelf.

That is quite a collection especially if it is one you do not add many models to it because it may not be your main collecting interest.

Thanks for showing them Theo.

There is something about Matchbox toy cars that grabs me & brings the child back into my head, looking into that box full of them just takes me back to a very happy time, thank you it has cheered me up.

<p>Thank you for pointing that out to me Malcolm. I just put them there because of the space they take on the shelf, trying to maximize the shelf width </p>
