Yes, we know it's a little bit of a contradiction in terms, but here's where you can talk about Norev, Minialuxe, Siku, Polistil, Tomte, Auburn, Sun Rubber or any other ready-made model car that's made of plastic or rubber. Hey, they're still cast in dies!

Very nice and you even have a decent box with it. That is a bonus. Looks like the bike driver might have a time driving that Mini

thanks Jim, he may have to squeeze into it, the ting I forgot to mention is that the screenis missing , something for me to have a go at.

More than just a screen, it is missing the whole ferring, the screen is just a small curve at the top. This will be not so easy I think

Fantastic find Andy. So you are making a windscreen for it?

I am going to have a go at it , I have only seen two examples of these , one may well be the one i have , the other someone has taken the floor sign from the AA Mini van and used it to look like Ferring.

By the way Happy Easter All , I was doing some gardening this morning and our old bird feeder had been broken, I put a new one up a few weeks ago but didn't throw away the old one , looking at I had a thought , it was rounded and had a hole in it I cut the shape out like on the box and got my daughter to print me some AA badges and a yellow piece of paper and here it is , I believe it not too far off what the original would have been like.

Nicely done and another reason not to toss things into the bin right away. I also keep items I think might be useful one day. I do have a garage to store things in so I keep a lot. LOL

Just went through this thread. Fascinating models that I've never heard of (except the great Frog Cortinas).
Thanks for showing!

<p>That is so true Peekay. Andy shows us on a regular basis toys that were unknown to me  (us) and it puts the collection/collecting them into a new perspective. Even though I don't collect plastic toys (apart from a few Routemaster buses of course ) Andy's postst certainly raised interest for them and I am always eager to be looking out for some on fleamarkets etc. because they don't fetch too high a price</p>
