Hi,

some finds frrom the Retro Classic fair near Stuttgart.
The Citroen is quite played with but it has the silver plastic wheels, the DUKW was the first I have ever seen and it is nearly mint.
The racer is a Ferrari made by Schuco within the Piccolo range and the plastic model is a Mercedes 220 made by Hammer in Germany.

Hi,
some new models today.
The refuse collector is missing the labels but I think there are spare labels avaiable.
The Rolls is already repainted but I´ll do that again.
The plastic fire engine was made by ESPEWE in East-Germany.

By the way - has anyone of you heard anything from Ghosty lately?
I miss him a bit.

Just that he is away for a bit Stephan. Hopefully doing well and back soon, he is missed.

Nice additions, will be looking forward to seeing the transformation of the Rolls

Veri nice Stephan!

The red ESPEWE fire engine in your earlier post is a Barkas B1000. Scale 1:87 for HO size rails in my opinion.

Some new models today.
I bought this lot because of the compressor truck and (sorry) for the Hotwheel Custom cougar.
If anyone needs spare containers, a jetplane or one of the other models please contact me.
