Because of the cars whizzwheels, it's the first gift set I've been looking for. But I had the opportunity.


I found the empty box, and spent months and months to get the cars. I even got a Rover 2000 and a brand new Porsche.


But finally fill it like this.





That's the way a french advert shown it.

That looks great and congratulations on completing the set one at a time. That is hard to do.

Thank you all.

That's not the first time I find an empty gift box. I really like to have to seek after models to fill them.
I remember my first GS1. I had to find cars and their boxes. It took me about 18 months. It learns patience.

Congratulations, that's a brilliant achievement.


For a moment I thought that the rear ramp piece was missing but I can see now from images on the net that there's a separate spot for it inside the box.

I did the same for a couple Lesney Military Sets but no boxes. Getting the last piece of the puzzle is an accomplishment only those with our hobby can appreciate.


And you competed an awesome set too. I love the tri-deck and this set is incredible

Thanks !

You're right CCE. The ramp is inside the box.
