...and now something completely different.There was a time when Llledo created a new line of models, made in a limited number and rapresentative of various famous car of the world. I don't know when they decide to do this line, but the result was something high detailed and well done, that reflects the typical philosophy of manufacturing of this company:










I am very proud of this model. I bought it as an hazard, becouse I have never had the opportunity to have it in my hands. It costs a bunch of money (in my opinion) but It is worth while.

That superb Shelby Cobra model was made by 'KYOSHO' and marketed by Lledo in the UK within their 'VANGAURDS GOLD' series.

These Lledo cars are very nice!

I like the Anglia more than the Austin.

The 'Golden Series' featuring models made by 'KYOSHO' was introduced during 1998 and probably went into 1999, they were certificated models with controlled production quantities, so they were not intended for long term production.


Hope that is of help to to you.

...And finally I decided to buy these two Land Rover. It happened in a moment of compulsory crisis .. . At the moment I think I finished with  all the  British Railways related models issued by LLedo in the Vanguard series.   If I remember well I spent 23 Pounds to buy both....winning an E-Bay auction. I lost the Land Rover of the BT, the red one, that was very expensive. But - most important thing - I'm very happy anyway...


 


 


The Photos have been made in open air, along an old dismissed railway line that I love particularly....

Good score Saltobravo. The Landys are so nice. Today I received 3 Corgi ones, I got them from a man who lives in my village and he knows I am into diecast cars....

I wouldn't like to pollute this topic, but talking about Lledo I saw a ebayer selling pre-pro RR & Bentley that ar resin made.

It seems to be a Lledo specialist.

Is there any Lledo expert that could or not confirm that ?

Hi Corky
If you are asking about ebayer 1:10th
He has had quite a few rare and pre-pros .

This can be a problem now that 15 years have passed it is a pity that they did not scratch the base but just put a label with the number on.
All I would say is ask him questions?
