HI , I'm new here, and looking for abit of advice

I have a rare Vanguards Traffic Officer 2006 Highways Agency Range Rover for sale on Ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120753045390&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

I was wondering if anyone had bought one of these previously and what sort of money they paid for them.  From working with the HA events team who commisioned these I know  they were given as promotional items to a select few, although there were several in our office cupboard

As this appears to be the only Vanguards related thread, I thought I'd better inform collectors and for those that may not know of a possible problem with the models in the future;


Below is what happened to my Blaze red Morris Marina! Just unscrewing the base a few days ago to sort out the loose suspension and it all fell apart! It's a problem with zinc casting and after some years (maybe more than 10 years) the bodyshells or baseplates fall apart on certain models. This has only happened to me the first time and to the base plate but I've seen some horror stories of this happening to the bodyshells and a couple of models in particular which thankfully I don't have. They are the Le Mans green gift set Ford Consul GT (Granada shape) and the Ford Transit van (millionth transit). Also the Southdown Austin A35 van. The shells on those three just crack up. I know it afflicts some Mini Dinky's of the 60's and some of the pre war 28 series vans. It's a bad mix or contaminated castings. I've also seen signs of it happening to my Vauxhall Viva police car too..........
