This Pathe News Fiat has been in my collection for years, it had the cameraman but missing the tail gates , I replaced them & after a tedious task of carefully prizeing down the glazeing i managed to compete it with out tacking the base off.


If you Goggle Pathe News "Busy Bobby" there is a very special link to me & the policeman on the Vellocette & the lady who opens the door to him.

If you get one incomplete with good paint the re-pro parts are very good

My mum still has some of his soldiers in a cabinet,he used to enter a monthly competition with them & in the end the organisers said could he let some one else have a chance of winning , the guns were sold but she still has the Laughing Cavalier picture with the letter from the Wallace Collection on the back giving him permission to paint it.

I got this Vote For Somebody Mini van this week , I bought a re-pro figure which is metal & some re-pro rear doors, I am looking for something to make the missing speaker from , this is a hard to find model & I have the original to compare with , the figure was made of plastic & all that is missing from mine is the mike & lead.

Steve Flowers does whitemetal speakers for the early postwar Loudspeaker Van, you may be able to adapt part of this casting if it compares well with yours, or remove your one existing plastic cone and substitute both metal ones instead to keep the "balance".
- Just a thought!

He also has the speaker for this #492 Mini Van. I am assuming it is just one speaker horn as it is £1.05
