For Sale

Due to our decision to move away from selling through toy fairs and the like to now concentrating all our selling activity to the Internet requires a rethink on this ‘For Sale’ page.

So for 2017 rather than showing a collection of images of available items I would now ask you to view the items I have available through the ‘My Ebay Page’ which can be found on the ‘Links’ section on the right hand side of my title pages.

For those of you who do not wish to purchase via Ebay but are still interested in any of our items then please feel free to message us on the items of interest.

    Hi Karen, sorry to disappoint you but I don’t have any table-top games in at present. To be honest with you its only as we come towards the year end that these sort of ‘games’ become popular. I suppose its because families get together and are looking for something to do along with the kids. Not only that but Escalado makes a super ‘Race-Night’ for the adults !
    Will get back to you if I come across one soon.
    David.

    Do you have or can you advise regarding kits made by, I think, Shackleton in the late 1940/50 on racing cars, in particular an ERA and an ALTA. These were white metal kits in great detail with suspension. I had them as a child but sadly lost them.
    Your comments will be a great help.
    Regards

    Antony, I think the racing cars you are thinking of were those produced by Scamold and not Shackleton as you thought.
    Scamold or to be more accurate Scale Models Ltd., were based in Weybridge, Surrey at Brooklands, which as most people will know was the home of the first purpose-built banked motor racing circuit in the world and were manufactured from around 1940 to the early 1950′s.

    The pictures above show a pair of early racing cars from the Scamold range. Model No.105 – Alta, finished in dark blue with light blue interior along with model No.103 – Maserati, in green with brown interior. Both models were fitted with suspension and exhaust pipes.
    I’m not sure how many models made up the racing car range but certainly it included the likes of ERA / MG / BUGATTI / ALTA and MASERATI.
    The kit form models came under the title of Scamold Ali-Kit, again I’m not sure how extensive the range was but it certainly included ERA / ALTA / MASERATI / RILEY and BENTLEY.
    Scamold models were manufactured with a cast alloy body with sheet metal wings and were fitted with normal or independent suspension to all wheels. Vehicles came as either non-mechanical or were fitted with a clockwork motor. The clockwork models having a purpose made ‘key’.
    Models came in identical picture card colour boxes with the model make, colour and mechanical or non-mechanical stamped in ink to the box end.


    Typical example of the picture card box is shown above along with its contents, Maserati racing car in yellow colourway finish with blue cockpit interior.
    It is worth noting that the racing cars came in various colours; red, yellow, green, silver, light and dark blue plus others all with differing coloured cockpit interiors.
    Cannot be that specific on prices Antony as I’ve not seen one sold at auction recently, I note that prices seem a little low on the internet sales sites but I would expect them in decent working order to be realising between £50 to £100 depending on the model and boxed more around the £150 mark.
    Hope this is of some help and best of luck if you are looking for a model for yourself. David.

    I am now 72 and moved from the UK here to Sydney 5 years ago.
    I have a Shackleton Foden FG platform lorry which my grandfather gave to me for my 5th (?) birthday. It now has both front wheels missing, the spare wheel and one front axle.
    I am now looking to see if I can replace the parts before presenting it to one of my grandsons.
    Do you have, or know of anyone who can supply me with the missing parts please.
    Any help you can offer will be gratefully received.
    Many thanks,
    Kind regards
    Colin

    Further to my email above. It is not the axle that is missing but the actual fastener (bolt) that connects the wheel to the steering.
    Regards

    Hi there Colin or should that be G’day, looks like I’m going to disappoint you on your search for Shackleton spares. I e-mailed Arthur Clapp who is a well respected and long established supplier of various spares but without any joy. Arthur has now retired from making and supplying spares due to ill health and we wish him well for the future. Tried other avenues but all without success. If anyone knows a supplier of Shackleton spares please message in and I will add it to the Shackleton post.
    Sorry I can’t be of any further assistance Colin.
    All the best, David.

    Hello again that man, just to say I’ve been given a contact of someone who is not manufacturing but simply compiling a list of suppliers of toy spares, will drop them a line and see if they have any useful info.
    P.S. Don’t hold your breath.
    Regards, David.

    Hi there Mike, yes I’m sure there would be a few interested parties but sorry I don’t sell through this site now as there are too many complications. Sad to say not everyone out there is an honest person and I don’t want to end up as ‘piggy in the middle’ taking the flack. Best advice is to contact your local auction house that holds TOY auctions – don’t place it in a GENERAL sale as it would not attract many bids by comparison.
    Yes, you will have to pay sellers commission but the auction house will handle everything for you and without any hassle.
    Best of Luck, David.

    Hi,

    I am interested in an Ichiko Mercedes 250 battery operated in maroon colour. Do you know someone who would sell such a toy?
    thank you for help.

    regards
    Peter

    Hi Peter, Sorry I don’t is the simple answer but if anyone has this model for sale I will put you in touch with Peter for you to sort out between yourselves.
    Its been a good few years since I have seen this particular Ichiko model and I cannot remember ever seeing a boxed example. I know Ichiko reissued the friction drive version some years ago but not certain they reissued the battery operated Mercedes 250.
    Cheers, David.
