Today my wife and me went for a bicycle tour and bumped right into a fleamarket where I fond these two models for one Euro each.

Hi,

today I got this beautiful Ruston Bucyrus.
Now the Pickford has something to carry.
The tracks are not original and will be replaced by spareparts from modelcarparts.

Just imagine the amount of playability thet Ruston would have given it's owner(s). I would have enjoyed one of those myself, but when I was young (younger!!), I did not have that many Matchbox models, mostly Corgi and Dinky.

Those 1 Euro models are fine and what a mix of subjects. Are these destined for custom projects or keepsakes.

I think the Maserati, Bedford and the Dodge will stay as they are the others I will see.
