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
