Early Vanguards? Made in England one? The Ransomes name still lives on here in Ipswich with the retail & business park, which I beleive occupies the land that was once Ransomes.

Seems you like your Orstins, like a certain member on the CCMV yahoo group Smile

Sorry Marty,

I Didn't answer your points about this one. It's made in England so I assume it is an early model though I can't find a date. The box is the two part one half over other type in a red and yellow scheme with a photo of the model. It is from the 1950's-1960's Classic Commercial Vehicle range and copyright Lledo if this helps date it. E bay purchase hence the lack of knowledge Embarassed

Cheers,

Kris.

I thought it was one of the early ones. I remember selling a few of these when first released. Quite a few years ago now.

That's really nice. I have it on good authority that the real thing had its problems, getting through kingpins and spring shackles rather quickly. Also, some of the gearboxes were round the other way to others ie 3rd where 1st should have been, which was nice. Interestingly, that front means it's a diesel version. The petrol ones are quite a bit different.

Cheapest i've seen it on ebay is £14.50 plus postage, so at £7.99, its just about half price! Bargain Laughing

No, it's exactly how it came out of the box. It is the LT version but only has a number and "Whitechapel" on the door.

Ah yes,

It's perfect (thought it would be Very Happy). Really is nice model isn't it and fits in with the layout a real treat. Must find you a photo of the NCB truck (not that I am trying to make you spend your money Embarassed).
