French Models to Collect

Post by mickthemaverick »

I went to preview a model car auction today with Jim and we were both very impressed with the quality and range of models coming up in Saturday's sale at Excalibur Auctions in Kings Langley. There is a link below to the full catalogue.

We went through all the lots which included Citroens and came up with a basic list of what model is in which lot to help potential buyers pick the right lot to bid on. This is a snapshot of the notes I made and more details about any lot can be found in the catalogue link below: these lists are not complete for each lot merely highlights of the lot which interested us.

That was a cracking day out Mick :D Enjoyed every second and that pizza was something else :D

Those models are superb quality and all in absolute pristine condition...

Lot 159 has got my name all over it ;) I may have to speak to my bank manager!
