Nothing to do with me but spotted on e-bay.


We are still in the process of remaking a prototype set . NB £145 is just the starting bid

Hi,
It appears to have been won for £145.
Given they are like 'hen's teeth', especially in what appeared to be good condition, I'm not surprised.
Fortunately Sally has hers but allot don't.
So I wish you success, that will be a valuable box ticked for parts availability.
Long term, what are you thinking of producing them in? Plated Brass or Stainless Steel?
Best wishes,
Mike.

Hi,
Can you let me know when you have a batch ready and how much you will be looking for a set?
Many thanks,
Mike

Just out of interest - how are they made?
Weren't the originals Stainless?
Cheers

I've never seen any in anything except brass (and then chrome plated) on the "split screen" cars.
The Minor 1000 ones were stainless steel however. Prior to a plastic strip being used later on.
