A nice Franco-American trio indeed. All of them seem to carry a too heavy load in their trunks ...

Kind regards, Jan

Some additions of the past few weeks below. A trade box with three no. 27b Halesowen Harvest Trailers. The same colour racks are still packed underneath in their original tissue papers. A red no. 36e Salmson Two-seater beauty, to replace a poorer example in the collection. Both a green and a grey no. 37a Civilian Motor Cyclist in very fine condition. Mostly they are rather play-worn. They may need some soft, gentle cleaning. A boxed no. 415 Mechanical Horse with Open Wagon too, the latest version without '20' roundel. Both model and box look perfect. It will replace an unboxed example. Also a fine no. 564 Elevator Loader. I have some already, but I could not resist this one for its outstanding 'as new' early all blue box, with all inserts present. Most of these boxes are very poor. Finally four boxes, each with one dozen large grey round tread tyres 10253. They are very welcome for replacing some originals on near perfect models, which often have flattened or crushed tyres. About 1/3 are 'as new' and supple, another 1/3 is a bit stiff, a gamble, but some possibly still useful, and 1/3 is really hard and most probably useless. As usual, I am extremely happy with these!!! Kind regards, Jan

Hello Jan. Perhaps you could try some high quality silicone grease on the very hard tyres. It may make them useable. Gently massage the tyres with your fingers and allow them to absorb the grease. After a few days they should be more flexible.

Thank you, John, for the tip!

I may try if I need more of these spare tyres than I expected. Kind regards, Jan

Don't forget to warm them in water before attempting to fit them.  Also use a cloth with a little grease to wipe on elderly tyres to prolong their lives - particularly the melted ones on pre-war models.

Lovely example, Richard. And the 19th forthcoming! 

I am still waiting for a first suitable example (near perfect and affordable) to come by ...

They tend to be rather pricey, despite many turning up and being unboxed only. Is that because of the many collectable variants? 

Kind regards, Jan
