    This is my for sale list.
    If I tried the same with the entire collection, I'd probably be finished before the list is.

    I'm not saying it doesn't happen at all. But it happens remarkably rarely considering the numbers that were chucked out.

    I know it as zinc pest and it is actually a quite well known phenomenon. Many old toy soldiers suffered from it and sadly it wasn't uncommon with old Märklin locos either.
    Luckily it has hitherto eluded me, but I'm just waiting for it to occur on some of my diecasts.
    The explanation that it is caused by an incorrect alloy recipe is correct. Sadly it will pass initial quality control and the effect occurs only long after the items have been cast.
    That this rarely happens with old British diecasts should tell you something about the care and attention that went into their manufacture.

    Please PM me for the list.
    I thought I offer them here first, before I whack them on Ipay.
    Due to me being located in England, the list might be more interesting for the European members.
    Although, postage to the rest of the World is not a problem, of course.

    Whether it's pretty, we know when it won Le Mans. Until then, it's just a car.

    I had mentioned the Jo-Han '58 - '62 Caddies, which were all four doors.

    My mistake. It's a 1970. Forever butchered the '70 LTD tool afaik.

    I just remembered that I once also had a very warped 56 Chevy Bel Air 4-door hardtop with green tinted windows, no interior and tinplate chassis.
    It was molded in cream, two-toned with red paint and had separate, chromed rb and fbg, as well as correct wheel covers.
    I have no idea who the manufacturer was. PMC?

    The Del Rio is a two-door though, no?
    I already mentioned the '91 Caprice and subsequent Impala SS, they were made by Revell.
    The Chrysler 300 was made by AMT I think.
    Was that Chrysler Cirrus made by Brookfield?

    It's lovely, honest.
    I'll do a review on that one.

    I'm really doing a sterling job downsizing my plastic kit collection.
