Hi all from New Zealand.

 

A recently acquired 23a without driver seems to b the same as John's one only blue instead of red and cream.  The axles are domed on one end and crimped of the other

HI Ron,

This is a 23 Racing Car, not a 23a. It was announced in Meccano Magazine in April 1934, first made from lead (as yours, I think), then Zamac, abandoned end of 1934, when a new casting appeared for 23a Racing Car.

A rare and nice example you have got here, Ron, still with its original white tyres.

Congratulations and Regards from Thailand
Walter

dear all,

Despite the last post on 23A was a couple of years ago, I would like to share my 23 A's with you. I assume the yellow one is the oldest (no exhaust and driver), having quite some milage on the tyres... I appreciate you input! Bas

Hi Bas, that's quite a fleet of 23/23a models you show us! These red hubbed ones look very similar. I presume there are some subtle differences in characteristics, or are they basically the same? Kind regards, Jan

Hi

The yellow one is a Dinky copy, made by Johillco, lead, produced in the mid-30ies.

Hi Bas

When you say "the yellow one is exit @Jan" I don't understand. Have you thrown it in the bin??? :)

Hi , no, I did not throw the yellow Johilco in the bin :-), but txs to the feedback it is no longer part of my Dinky collection. And my other response was to Jan in relation to the set with red hubs...
