Item Condition

The grey paintwork only displays the most minor of marks. The green wheels at the rear maintain a bright green but the outsides of the front wheels are now a blue-green. The base plate has 181 stamped within and is the early mottled type. A genuine rare variation where I have only seen two-three other similar models over the last 30 years. Superb casting with no manufacture faults.

Totally original, fully checked model and light tested with no known added touches.
Hard to find in any condition let alone this superb example.
